Thanks for reading my blog. Unfortunately this will be my last post as our project is dead for the season. We have been socked in by the weather, and are now out of time to get to our field camp. So I'll be coming home early. I should be back in St. Louis on the 15th or 16th. For my last post I have some pictures of what life is like at McMurdo research station. Enjoy.
This a shot of the loading dock in the Crary science building. This is where we do our equipment testing and field preparation.
When we get a little down time, I take the opportunity to play the Ross Island disc golf course. This is my friend Carl getting ready to tee off. Yes he is crazy and in fact wearing shorts.
Sometimes our discs go astray and we have to climb up on the roof to retrieve them.
The disc golf crew.
Here we are getting some survival training for preparation to head to the field.
Altitude training inside the Gamow bag. When someone gets altitude sickness we have to stick them in this small pressured chamber that simulates lower altitudes until they recover.
My bedroom in the dorms. My bed is on the right.
Here's a shot of our office in the Crary science building.
And finally a couple of shots from one of the parties at McMurdo this season. The event was called Freezing Man. It was like Burning Man, only in Antarctica. There were costumes, live music, and glow sticks.
