Let the fun begin...

David Young, Ian Conery, and I (Reide) have made it to the airport in Norfolk. Thank you Sandy and Beth for providing safe transport!! The weather is about as cold as what we expect to have when we finally make it to our destination...the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP). In fact, it has been snowing here...and more is expected. We will fly to Punta Arenas, Chile...about 24 hours when it's all said and done. From there we will board the research vessel Laurence M Gould. Then on the 13th we set sail, crossing the infamous Drake Passage on our way south. Wish us luck and keep checking back for updates on out travels and research.
