So, it is
cold in Antarctica! Made it down safe and sound today from Christchurch, and I got to ride in the cockpit of a C17 on the way! Had a pretty good time, only little teeny bad thing that happened was I forgot to put some spare batteries in my carryon, so I don't have any pics of hopping out of the jet onto the sea ice. Spent a little time unpacking and looking around, ate dinner, then went off for a little walk to get some crispy fresh air and stretch the legs. Will be posting a lot more text and some pictures sometime soonish, but I'm sleepy and need to get up pretty early tomorrow morning. Breakfast, then a day of sea ice training! Can't wait!
