Some days . . .
#meetthenorth is about northerners and northern life. Our goal is to get to know the Arctic through the people who live here by following their lead. We ask them who we need to meet and where we need to go. We listen and we act.

Some days we’re in the flow . . . and then there are other days.
Today was all about cancelled rendezvous, unanswered phones, unopened doors and a lost map which had all of my notes. But here is the turning point. Retraced steps, map found!

Moments later, we found a beach house with an open door. The inside of the door said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” Life got easier after that. We even got concert tickets.

Stay tuned for our special event tomorrow night.

We found the map!
