North is my new direction

Today is a big day for me here in McMurdo.

After 286 days on the ice I find myself currently waiting for the giant C-17 to pull into town and pick me up. Today my favorite word is NORTH and not to be confused with SOUTH. Because it has warmed up a bit (very relative) there are many planes flying to the South Pole. I will be paying close attention to which boarding line I get in.

Here are a few random pictures from the past couple of days
This little Adelie wandered to the edge of town and hung out for a day These 2 friends are living up at Cape Royds which has hundreds of Adelies
My roomates....but not my luggage. I hope I never have 4 big black bags that all look the same. booooring! Me, Karen, Cindy & Susie + some random guys luggage
My friend Matt and I

The Americans have formed a Rugby team in hopes of beating the Kiwis in the annual match in January. I dont think most have any idea how to play but it was fun watching them try and figure it out.
Well, I am hearing my favorite word...NORTH and that means time to GO!!!

Thanks for following along on this crazy almost 10 months.
I hope to update this while traveling.
