Gale force winds have been ripping through Nome the past couple of days and nights. The KY Goldenrod crew awoke to find their outdoor 'facility' had been carried away by the strong wind; just lifted it up and tossed it into the nearby tundra. The new plan is to send back the porta potty, and bury our own septic system. Therefore all bathroom duties can be done inside the full bath at the end of container 1.
The winds have been wreaking havoc on gold divers, as the seafloor has been quite murky, making clear visibility impossible. They hope that by Saturday the winds will have died down enough to dive for gold.
