June 5, 2011 Chicago - only 7,486 miles away
Well, you didn't think I could make a directional sign and not know how far it is from the Antarctic Western Peninsula and Chicago, did you? Harry helped me make this sign to go up on the directional sign post. It was a treat to go in the wood shop and take on a project and I finished in the nick of time as we sail on the 7th, weather permitting.
This seems like an excellent opportunity to urge you to learn how to work with tools. No matter what you end up doing with your life or what you major in in college - be handy with tools. I had learned how to safely use all sorts of tools before I even graduated from high school so you have no excuse. You can always come by my lab and help us build our next ROV!
Have you already figured out that the blue musical notes signify Chicago's Blues? Smart you are.
