The End of the Road, for now.  We've now been living in Ely, Minnesota for almost two months and will move into our new home in two weeks. 
Ely, Minnesota is a little town known as "The End of the Road", and also known for being an entry into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA).  It's small, has about 3000 year-round residents and during the winter it's tough to find a job here. 
We've been spending our time looking for jobs, house hunting and cross country skiing.  A couple weeks ago, our skiing brought us right across the path of a very fresh looking wolf-killed deer, right on the groomed trail. 
Now that we've found our house, our new hobby will be Home-Improvement. 
Neither of us have ruled out returning to Antarctica, (especially for that free trip to New Zealand), but for now we'll get settled in, buy some furniture and try to make a new life here in Ely.
