The picture here is of me boarding a C17 on the way to the coast of Antarctica. It was quite an amazing plane ride because it is such a huge plane and it is way faster than the C130 that I flew on last time. A short 5 hours and we were already in McMurdo, the U.S. coastal station.

At the South Pole
Quite a bit has happened since my last post. I actually arrived at the South Pole two days ago. I spent a day and a half on the coast of Antarctica before that and had quite an awesome time. In New Zealand I got to go on one of the most amazing hikes Ive ever been on. That is one of the hug perks of this work.
