Well it is around 90 degrees F here in Christchurch, NZ. No better time than now to try on polar fleece and heavy down coats no? That's what I just did for the last 2 hrs. Got a safety brief on what not to do on a C-17, what not to bring, what to bring, what to wear. All fun.
Looks like a an early go at it tomorrow. We have a 0900 flight, with a 0500 check out of the hotel. One last night in Christchurch (for a month at least).
Sorry I have limited bandwidth here so I can't upload pictures. More to follow in McMurdo. In the meanwhile:
