I wish I was writing this blog from Antarctica but unfortunately I’m still in Christchurch, NZ due to unfavorable landing conditions at McMurdo Station. I’ve been on standby for the last three days and it could still be a while before I can depart.
I met up with my field team (first time meeting in person!) and on Tuesday we checked in at the US Antarctica Program base to go through training and receive our issued clothing. I had fun trying on big red!
Besides that, I’ve just been exploring Christchurch and trying to soak up all the summer weather here.
Hopefully my next blog will be from the ice! Stay tuned.
