    OK, is McMurdo closest to NZ? South America? I assume NZ, because of your excellent map at the start of your journey… But it’s all “north” from there, so . . . ???

      South America is the closest continent to Antarctica. McMurdo is closest to New Zealand, which is why everyone that is stationed at McMurdo flies through Christchurch. The folks going to Palmer station fly through South America, not NZ.

      We are scheduled to fly out of the field back to McMurdo on February 5th. After that we’ll be on the first plane North to New Zealand. Then ill travel for about a month, meet Becky in Hawaii and return to Oregon around the first week of March.
