Everybody and their dog is into spot me it seems.
A team from the Torngat Secretariat is doing a Turbot survey on the coast, they have a spot me so people can track where they are at. Just near or at Makkovik the last update.
Then there is this group from Outpost magazine who are doing some stuff up in the Torngat Park after doing other parts of the province..
The magazine and the crew (well one of them) is a bit glossy and glitzy for my taste and the only reason I mention them is that our nephew Andrew is guiding them on a multi day hike in the park. The crew flew into the base camp, then with Andrew flew or boated north to be dropped off for the hike south.
The Torngat Park base camp is at the little dip to the left on the tracking line.
I hope they don't give Andrew any aggro and they listen to what he tells them. My reason for apprehension comes from watching the bit on *a sailor in St. Johns* and the interview they did on CBC Labrador morning.
I have no trouble with people doing these adventure type things and publicizing themselves and the areas they visit.
What does piss me off is the ones who do it on the tax payers dime, and this is clearly one of those tax payers dime trips.
To their credit they don't try to hide that fact, unlike many others (and there have and still are many) who do the Torngats and neglect to mention who paid for the bloody adventure of a life time.
Another warm one yesterday, 20 official and 23 at the house, no wind to speak of so flies were an issue.
This story broke (in its latest form) yesterday. 27 thousand animals out of what was estimated to be the largest herd in the world back in the 1980s of around 800 to 900 thousand animals.
Well the people of Nunatsiavut are doing there part in conservation, if they come across any at all. Why just this week NG were on the look out for one animal to help feed the people at the Nutak relocation ceremony, no luck at all.
Speaking of spot me, updated. This is the latest from Torngat secretariat turbot survey just happens to be at the dock here.
The boat there on was up north recently fishing turbot.
