"The Gjoa, Roald Amundsen's ship, being dragged up a timbered slide to its resting place in Golden Gate Park, July 1909. Photo by Fernando Cortez Ruggles." 
Amundsen, on another lecture tour in America, wrote to his brother Leon back in Christiania, "On this side of Christmas I will have pocketed 1,000 dollars and that is at least something.... I intend to give Gjøa a thorough inspection to see if she might survive another trip.... Please keep quiet about all this."  It is not clear whether he had some other plan for the Gjøa or was simply hedging his bets in case he did not get the Fram.
