After 15 hours on the Miss Alyssa we arrived at the beach on Umnak Island where we put ashore. Umnak is 70 miles long and largely deserted. 25 miles away, on the other side of the island, is the village of Nikolski, where 39 souls live. We are completely isolated, however, as this would be a difficult 25 miles to traverse. There are no roads and not even any trails between us and Nikolski.
