I have returned to the (semi)civilized world of my home in western Michigan!
First, I would like to extend an apology for the ridiculous number of repeat posts that appeared on this blog last month. The internet at camp was very unreliable and slow, and I thought that my posts were not going through so I re-sent them several times (though I doubt as many times as actually showed up… that’s pretty strange). I have now cleaned up the excess posts, and I hope you will rejoin me for a hopefully more exciting account of my trip.
Anyways, I am home! In the last six weeks, I have dug up a large ungulate pelvis, screened through a lot of dirt, found many tiny debitage flakes and calcined bone pieces, seen a bear, ingested a significant amount of dirt, paddled a sturgeon-nosed canoe, and absorbed way too much DEET from bug spray to be healthy. But all in all, it was a wonderful experience that I am thoroughly happy I got to be a part of.
I managed to write in my journal almost every day of the entire trip, so my plan is to upload those entries, a few at a time, over the next few weeks with accompanying pictures. I hope you will all stick around for the journey!
