August 1, 2015: Moving forward

Passed the hard spot — took three tries.  There are only a few ships in the world that could get past that, and Oden is one of them. Now near Humboldt Glacier… huge, fills the horizon. Heading toward the south end of it, where we will drop a fuel cache for CBS News.  Then we will try to get about 50 miles further north to the other side of Humboldt Glacier, dropping a second fuel cache — helicopters drink fuel and it is a safety issue.  With luck we might be outside Petermann Fjord by late tomorrow night (UTC time).
