After reading Jon Gertner’s books, I realized that he used a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to fund his Greenland endeavors. I have spent around a $1,000 so far on writing this book – research materials, online archive subscriptions, computer hardware, and website hosting comprise my current My plan is to visit the three remaining Overland Trains. Covid travel restrictions and funding have been the two pain points. I calculated that visiting the three remaining Overland Trains would cost around $7,000.

I do not know if a grant is a long shot. As my old boss used to say, “The answer is already “no” if you don’t ask.” Thanks for that Fran!
