Half the crew flew out yesterday; tomorrow the remaining 13 are scheduled to pull up the stakes and close camp for the season. There are still dozens of pallets to package and move, but we suspect it will be possible to get everything done before our flight scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Our biggest concern now is the weather. When the weather observer called the HQ in
for a forecast tomorrow all we got in response was laughter. It seems there is a monster Antarctic storm heading our way with no foreseeable end in sight. The high wind, biting maritime moisture and rudimentary facilities should make for a memorable last experience here in the deep field. Charleston SC
