Safe, easy flight.  Lots of sleep.  I bet you're looking forward to being right side up again! 

Thanks for letting us all be armchair penguin herders and Southern Light catchers.

Hey Mike
The weather will eventually clear and you'll be homeward bound. Can't believe how fast the time has flown. Safe trip home. I'll miss your posts from down there. Bet you already have a game plan for the first few smokes

Ahhh, weather, like meat, has a mind of its own. 

Hey Mike, any trouble sleeping because you're so excited about coming home? 

Update: I just checked the weather at McMurdo Station.  Sunny skies today.  Since Mike's last post was more than 12 hours ago he may be headed home!

No Im still here. :(  We had 1 sunny day but there was ice fog on the ground so they cancelled the flight. I am not sure when I will be leaving.

Sorry Mike, that sucks. Well, when you do get back, it'll be sunny and high 60's all week in your area.

I really think you need to bring a couple sticks along for smoking.  there will be times for stories, times for work and times to design a cheap, easy smoker to tame the wild beasts. 

   Good luck and good times. stay warm.
