The packing has begun. Detailed emails with departure dates are being sent my way and our storage unit is ready Friday. Hard to believe this is my last month in the United States before the journey begins. This blog is to tell my family and friends about my year at the South Pole, Antarctica.
Max and I are scheduled to leave for Denver, Colorado, where we will spend one week of team building with the other winter overs and then three to five days of Emergency Response Training (medical or fire). After, we will get on a plane to Dallas, TX, Australia, and then to Christchurch, NZ. There we will get our clothes distributed to us for the year. That week we will fly to McMurdo, Antarctica and then finally to South Pole. We are scheduled to arrive on station by October 31st.
