I am home

Science group in the hanger of the Polar Sea. Photo taken by Daniel Cox of Natural Exposures. I learned a lot from him, and you should check out his website.
First Arctic roller coaster ride!
You got to get in the ice somehow!
I nick named that light, Ol' Misery!
Pancake ice!

I am not sure why I am having such a hard time with that cord, but it is kicking my butt.
On top of the world.

I am home. I made it to the Arctic, and now I am back. Mark welcomed me home with a big hug and kiss, and informed me that I wasn't allowed to leave again. I need to thank him, for all the work he did on my blog, without him, this blog never would have happened. I also want to thank my shipmates, both Coast Guard and civilian for allowing me to get to know you.

All and all it was a wonderful experience. I got to go to a place many don't, see things few do, and be a part of major film project. It was a true honor. It wasn't easy though, and it wasn't very glamorous, as you can tell from my pained expression working with an extension cord. For as great as it was to be underway, it's great to be back home. Thanks for following my blog.
