Varvara's Travels March 25-April 1, 2012
We have not heard from Varvara for two days and this may be due to a variety of factors (tag loss, bad weather, battery failure, etc.). We still hope to hear from her further. If not, it has been a wonderful track. Only time will tell. Her last locations were west of Icy Bay and east of Kayak Island.
