My first blog post

It's hard to believe but a week from today I'll be boarding an airplane in Redmond, OR and heading off to Christchurch, NZ, arriving on October 2.  And two days later, after some orientation and getting my Extreme Cold Weather clothing, I'll head to McMurdo Station in Antarctica (lovingly known as the "Ice").  There I will spend the next four and a half months as a shuttle driver.  I'll explain more about my job in a later post, once I know more.

Many family, friends, co-workers and neighbors asked to kept informed on my adventure to the Land of Ice.  So I decided to develop a blog.  There's a bit of a learning curve but I'll get the hang of it eventually.  I will strive to update it weekly but no promises.

I will miss everyone and my little house on Frazer Lane.  But I look forward to making new friends and experiencing the most isolated continent in the world.
