January 31, 2010 Jan 31st: End of the Season
It is hard to believe but I am already home! I arrived home sooner than I thought due to a rapid sequence of unanticipated flights! I am certainly exhausted after the long journey! The WAIS camp closed down more quickly than we thought and I left WAIS only to find myself on a plane back to Christchurch less than 12 hours after leaving the field! 36 hours after that, I collected my luggage in Flagstaff and arrived at home safe and sound!
I didn't realize how much I missed sunsets, the night sky, and easy access to fresh vegetables. I also love having a warm bed and, of course, a flush toilet!
I have lots more to post about WAIS Divide and since I am now back in the land of internet, stay tuned for videos and photos that I was unable to send while out in the deep field.
