Antarctica bound

Yesterday we were scheduled to fly to McMurdo Station, Antarctica, but our flight got canceled due to poor weather on the ice. Luckily, Christchurch is a beautiful place, so we took a gondola to a viewpoint above town and went on a hike.

Today, we made it to the Antarctic Passenger Terminal and through security screening. We’re waiting on a one hour maintenance delay and should be taking off in a C-130 soon! Hopefully the next time you hear from us, we’ll be writing from McMurdo! There, Laura and Tyler will give you an update about getting their Extreme Cold Weather gear in Christchurch and about their first impressions of McMurdo. We’ll check back soon!
