I made it to McMurdo (McM) on Monday, October 17th about noon. Yeah! AWESOME!
Dave & Kelly met me at the ice runway to welcome me to my 7th and final continent!
That's me in my ECW gear and the Airbus I rode from NZ.
What an awesome place! It was really cold yesterday, about 30 below, but today was a more pleasant 6 below. It’s COLD! (well, duh!) Anything warmer than 45 below is considered “Go” condition, meaning business as usual. This place is so beautiful, amazing blue skies, every color of white and blue you can imagine – and lots of both!
This is so very cool, I love hanging out with these people that have the same passion for travel and adventure I do! This is going to be a fun job! Not sure what the heck I was so worried about….
The roommate situation isn’t the best, but it will work out. I got my last choice of dorms and have 3 roommates ( 4 total) in a room that should have just 2 of us.
The training has been top notch, from the Orientation in Denver, to the ECW issue in ChCh (Christchurch) and now here on the ice. I run into the great people from my orientation classes all the time, it’s been really social and fun.
Inside the Airbus, business class and comfy.
