FINALLY. After all this waiting. I have been hanging out with other adventurers, trying to fatten myself up and dragging tires along the beach while longing to start the journey on snow. And finally I got to get on board that plane to Antarctica. 4 1/2 hour military style flight and a landing at the Union Glacier base. It feels awesome to be here, almost surreal. Now I need to sort my stuff out and hopefully head off to the real departure soon, to the starting point and edge of of the continent. It is sunny all day, all night. Super cold and super cool to be here!
