My Kitty Cat's ready...

I'm sooo psyched! I went to the Co-op today to check in on my snowmobile and they were just finishing up with the final touches (it's being souped up with the accessories like the hitch, sled, etc.). I get to pick it up tomorrow...I can't wait!!

Actually, looking back over the past three months, I can see a lot of things that have changed  - some of which I dare not mention here. Let's just sum it up in northern terms...I no longer blink when I have to pay $40 for a bag of flour, sporadic water service doesn't phase me, walking around in heavy Baffin boots is an acceptable work-out, -30' weather does not seem so cold...the list goes on. Now that I have a big 'ol dog and a snowmobile, I feel like my metamorphosis is almost complete.

There are still a lot of things left to do - more adventures to have - and I feel lucky to be given that opportunity. I'm really looking forward to Christmas...unlike a lot of other people, I will be staying in Pang for the holidays. My students seem to be a bit surprised, but I think it's going to be great. Can't wait for my friend to get here!

Another 'can't wait'? follow this post up with some cruisin' pics. Yay!

Awwww... you are making me miss my skidoo! We sold them when we moved from Kugluktuk to the Yukon and we haven't bought replacements yet!

Have fun and drive safe!
