All in all, this is a nice way to close the chapter on an amazing and challenging summer. I am very glad I had the opportunity to live life to the fullest, and walk such a breathtaking trail. I am also glad that the chapter is behind me.
Antarctica is coming up fast. I deploy in one month. I am scrambling here to get many things done before I leave. I am looking forward to another field season, but I am also realizing that this will be the third christmas, thanksgiving, and new years day that I'll miss. I will enjoy my time down there, but also be content knowing it may be my final season for a while. (pending involvement with another project).
that's it for now...
