Taking the reins

I'm still plugging away here at Pole, and our transition between winter and summer crews is progressing. I haven't done anything much "exciting" since arriving, and am pretty much trying to lay low and get over this bug I picked up in McMurdo. Today is the first outbound flight with a whole bunch of winterovers, so the dynamics of the station will be changing rapidly. The remaining winterover crew members will-as always-get antsy and really want to leave, too. This is a case where the grass is actually greener. Anyhow, I don't have much else to share right now.

“Nothing is secure but life, transition, the energizing spirit.”
