"Pause" still depressed

We're just hanging out here in McMurdo still waiting for our C-17 to take off from Christchurch.  Tempting fate, plans have begun to be made for the trip home as of later last night, so we'll see whether that has any butterfly effect on provoking a response from NASA or a delay in this flight.  At least I haven't pulled the sheets from my bed yet.  Anyhow, it's pretty much stay calm and carry on until we get a transport time to the airfield.  Last night we did "bag drag" and checked the last of our gear, so we're traveling light with just carry-ons from now until we meet back up with the rest of our stuff in Chch.
