This is Brien Sheedy writing in from the bar after a busy prep day. Antarctica Logistics and Expeditions presented a two hour logistics brief this morning and then we packed our bags that will get loaded on the Ilyshin 76 TD (A Russian made transport planes especially well suited to landing on blue ice). Both Megan and Gregor picked up a few pieces of gear at some local shops and Megan informed me that we needed to have a few drinks now because she was tired from a hard day of shopping and Gregor concurred to Megan’s request. I think this team is going to work well together. The weather tomorrow looks promising for flying so hopefully the team will get to fly on to the ice tomorrow.
