The Drake Passage.

That’s were I right now. My head is a bit fuzzy from the sea sickness medication buy other than that I’m doing fine. Can’t say the same for my roommate but he’s sleeping now so all is good.

On a plane.

Soon to be departing, Santiago here I come. after that a quick flight to Punta arenas before boarding the LMG and Palmer bound.


Last day of training for OSAR on Thursday. My team kicked some ass. We worked great as a team and finished before the other team. Which earned us some cold Gatorade and dark chocolate peppermint patties.

Getting ready for my 7th season at Palmer. This week it is OSAR (ocean search and rescue), last week it was fire team training. Less than a month and I’ll be back in the land of ice and snow.




Fire training for heading back to Palmer.
