My functions on this trip will be similar to last time. I will work with the weather forecasters at McMurdo station, while doing some of my own work along the way. I'll write more about that later. I am essentially on my own for this trip, but at least this time there will be some people I know there.
I leave this Sunday...Columbus to Dallas-Ft. Worth to Los Angeles to Auckland to Christchurch. After arriving in New Zealand on 20 January, I should have two days there to recover and get issued gear before hopefully leaving for Antarctica on 22 January. Of course that all depends on the weather! I will try to post either in New Zealand (if I have time and anything exciting happens) or once I get to McMurdo. I will have about three weeks at McMurdo. My tentative return to New Zealand is on 11 February, then returning to the U.S. on 15 February.
Thanks for stopping by!
