Marlon, we are on our way!!!

Marlon - Good news. RU15 just flew out of the warm core ring. Currents are down to below 20 cm/sec, and direction has switched. We can fly where we want to for the first time in a week! We are heading northwest into the next eddy to the north.

We'll try to follow a path like this. You can click on the image to see it bigger. We'll head north into this smaller eddy, shoot around the top to the east, stay in the cold water till we get the small eddy by 63W that will get us up to the shelf break. From there, we cross the shelf towards Halifax, a standard coastal endurance line with the altimeter turned back on.
Hope to see you up there in about 3-4 weeks.
Dave wants lots of extra power in the batteries when this one comes home.
