Thursday evening, I got a verbal confirmation of my deployment itinerary: leaving Monday, tomorrow, for Christchurch, New Zealand. Weather permitting, I’ll continue on to McMurdo Station, Antarctica, about 40 hours after landing in Christchurch.
My bags (and box) are packed and ready to go. It’s exciting to be on the move!
The next few days are going to be pretty busy between flights, getting fitted with cold weather gear, seeing some friends in Christchurch, and whatever else comes up. Hopefully I’ll have time and motivation to get a few little posts up along the way, but no promises!
