So, I was planning on posting a couple of lengthy blogs before leaving, however…. Life got in the way. I had to finish enjoying this place.
I’ll post recaps of August, September and the wee bit of October I spent here at some point on my vacation.
I’m scheduled to depart in just over 12 hours. That means I have 5 hours until I bag drag and 9 hours until transport time to Pegasus. The sea ice isn’t strong enough to hold a C-17 this year… I was worried about that when I was still seeing open water in July.
From here, I head to New Zealand, followed by Hawaii.
Then I’ll be back in Brunswick.
On a side note, I find it amusing that once I became tired of telling people back in Brunswick that I was excited to be going to Antarctica because, well, it’s ANTARCTICA, I (sarcastically) started telling them that I had dated all of the single guys in Brunswick and I needed to move on to new prospects… I never thought I’d actually be bringing one back with me.
