Weather for Barrow, AK is looking like mostly -15 to -25 degrees F for the next few days. I'm guessing that is not too extreme for this time of year. Lets hope the wind does not blow too hard and that the weather is decent for this fantastic journey.
My girlfriend is looking forward to pics of Barrow. She taught school up there for a year a few years back. She does not seem to miss the cold weather nor the threat of polar bears stalking you on the city streets either. I hope that Sjaak stays safe up there.
