Lets rewind back to January 13th where we last left off. Over the next few days while waiting for my northbound flight to New Zealand Ill try to piece together each part of the field season. Since we work long, irregular hours its easy to forget what day it is and even what you did the previous day. This season I tried to keep track of when I went to sleep each day and what hours I worked. The only other activity other than sleeping and working in the field is eating, which accounts for any other time not logged in my timekeeping efforts.
January 13th we left McMurdo for our Herc flight to Cresis.
Always either sleeping, eating or working. Here, I’m sleeping.
We spent one night at the Cresis field camp before traversing to our first borehole location. Heres some info on the Cresis science:
After we got to Cresis we helped our camp staff organize and pack food for the next couple weeks of drilling. Graham and I offered to help secure this cargo being dragged around camp behind a snow machine.
We camped one night at Cresis and started the short traverse to the first borehole. We rode inside one of the buildings called a rac tent.
More to come. This afternoon’s entertainment….Ice Breaker Tour.
