So what better type of weather than sunny and warm to go try-on and get fitted for Extreme Cold Weather Gear or ECW Gear? 65 degrees here now. Good times.
Off to the US Antarctic Program's Clothing Distribution Center or CDC out at the Airport in Christchurch. Basically everyone goes through the congo line there trying on the gear they have for you, trading what doesn't fit with something newer and sportier. It's basically like REI, but everything is bright red and worn before you--probably like 20 times.

|Brrrrrr.....its 65 F outside, let's throw some heavy goose down on!|

|Bags of gear issued out to participants. 2 for everyone--like we didn't have enough stuff already!|

So it's off to the ice tomorrow. This time tomorrow I may have a post up for the flight down. Hoping for an uneventful and boring flight. We shall see. Talk to you later. Cheers.
