This means that I will probably be here in Mac town for a while (at least a week). I spent the day busy with classwork. I had to take the refresher snow school course and buff up my knowledge on radio usage, survival, and cold weather life. I also had my Science in-brief and gathered my gear the Berg Field Center (aka "the BFC").
I am crammed like a sardine into a dorm room with 4 other "transient" camp folks and it certainly makes for a noisy (snoring) evening. I imagine that I will be through with most of my gear retrieval and classwork by end of week.
Here are some quick pics:

Ultrarunningguy creator made a comic about my ice adventures. Yay!
