Another normal day in McMurdo. Today I was driving Scharen around most of the day fueling things up and finishing up some of the work we did yesterday. We had replaced a couple hundred feet of the hose out to Willy, which is full of fuel, so the section that we cut out up to Scharen to suck out the 300+ gallons of fuel that were left in it before drying the hose out and throwing it in the garbage. When I was driving between Willy and Pegasus, the accelerator pedal stuck down, which isn't the best thing in a ~20 ton truck... Figured out what was going on with it (worn out bushings) when I got back and dropped it off at the heavy shop for them to fix that and a few other small things that were messed up. Spent the rest of the workday kicking around the barn taking care of several incidental tasks. Been writing emails and such most of the evening, about to head over to the coffee house for a bit, then off to bed!

Oh, and this is the 100th post to my journal!
