Anyone signed up for the March 7 trip to Churchill?

Jay Keiser Feb 01, 2016 at 08:16 AM

There is a web site: Explore.org that has camcorders across the world. One is at Churchhill. Many nights you can see spectacular Northern Lights displays.

Good to know. Thank you. You rented clothing. Are you going on the February trip or the March trip?
Jay Keiser Feb 02, 2016 at 08:06 AM

We are going in February. This Monday!!! Not much activity on this Discussion Board.
Janet Andruzzi Feb 02, 2016 at 02:07 PM

I know. I wish there was more discussion. I wanted to connect with more people. I wish you safe travels. Please let us know how the trip went.

We just called CNSC to rent clothing. We talked to a very pleasant person and the process is very easy.

Have a great time! I went last year and we saw the lights 3/5 nights! It is cold! Bring plenty of clothes to layer!
