Well, my stuff is all packed up on a pallet for the next LC-130 back to McMurdo. I am scheduled to fly out today… yikes! I cannot believe how time has flown by, and although I’m incredibly excited to start adventuring in
Middle-Earth New Zealand, it is surely a bittersweet goodbye to many things here at the South Pole. Here are just a few cherished memories and things I will definitely miss from my time here:
2. The Met office ‘therapy’ couch.
7. Expired Food… no, I guess I won’t really miss that.
And of course there is so much more that is going to be hard to leave. Overall, the experience was like being back in college again—everyone living in dorm rooms, eating in the galley/dining hall together, nonstop hanging out. I’ve made many wonderful friends here, and I’m sure without many of them this would have been a miserable experience.
So thank you to the 2014-2015 South Pole Summer Crew!
