Bill, Bart, Kristof and Rachel are on their way to McMurdo. Everyone is busy, so communication with them is intermittent at best. I am getting most of my information from Kristof’s blog. They are currently in Christchurch.
I am done with most of my packing and am attending a conference in St. Louis. If all goes according to plan, I will be in McMurdo in a week from now.
Packing was an amazingly complex task with a thousand little things to remember. This year I have managed to bring down my stuff to 1 bag weighing about 60lbs. It’s amazing how many material possessions one can do without if there is need.
