Hey guys, I owe y'all an explanation of what happened. In short - I had a little trip up to a camp in the Arctic Circle in Alaska. The place was supposed to have satellite wifi, and I was going to post regularly from there, so I didn't think there was a need to post anything in advance. Alas, shortly after I arrived, the damned internet went down due to some router problems or something like that, and there obviously wasn't any place for our hosts to get a new one on such short notice. I had prepared two phones and a cellular iPad, all on different carriers, and none of them ended up having reception there. Now that I'm back in what passes for a big town, I have internet again and hastened to post. So, so, so sorry! I'll work to see if we can add a week of extra time (or, for sponsorships which lapsed, a week's worth of credit - please post here) for any sponsors!
As for what I was doing there? Weeeell... let's just say that it was a (R)engagement ploy, and I am now officially Ren-gaged to a beautiful fiancee, and we got some rockin' aurora pictures out of it as well :D
Thanks again to everyone, and mucho apologies for the delay! New week starts today and we'll get to posting with posthaste!
