Long way to go

Since I'm bored and waiting for my ride to the airport (thanks Liz!), I wanted to see if I could use the last bits of real internet I have access to and find a cool way to show where I'm going. Apparently you need to buy an expensive edition of google earth if you want to make movies. But if you have google earth on your computer (well worth it) you can open this file and follow my air travels (6000 miles, 24 hours), then the cruise track to get to the front of Pine Island Ice Shelf (1700 miles, 1 week?).

Also, I spent some time today playing around on a website that has a ton of great graphics and detail about Antarctic weather if you're interested:

See you in PA!
