At the drop of a hat

A fedora would be the appropriate head wear, in my case.

With about an hour's warning, and my laundry just put in the dryer in McMurdo, I got notice I'd be flying to Pole on a Hercules this morning. The laundry got mostly dry, and I made the transport time to the Ice Runway, and a few hours later the fedora had dropped to 90 degrees south latitude. I'm moved into my room, catty-cornered to my one from last summer, had dinner, visited the band room, played more games of pool (being 1) than I did all last year, and gotten to see a few familiar faces that were down here for the last 9 months.

Glad you finally made it. Was that the first Herc?

Becky said...

Yeah! How was the flight? I hope there will be pictures soon.

Yeah, first Herc. The flight was smooth and uneventful. I'll do pics when I get a chance, though turnover is a priority right now.
