I’ve made it home.  It’s been a long trip, but a great one.  I got to see the woman I love after seven long months away from her.  I’m a pretty lucky guy, and am fortunate enough to have the love and support of such a beautifully amazing woman.

She’s had to head back to her home after a few short days, so now I’m left to adjust to being back.  What that means for me is going through all my mail, and bags and sorting and putting things away. 

Also it means going for a walk in the woods.  Nothing helps me get my head back in place like a good walk in the woods.  Though this will be the first time in years that I’ve walked these woods with out my dog Eddie, who passed away while I was gone.  Not sure it will be the same…


Had an amazing weekend in Punta Arenas, Chile.  Every time I go there the city just gets better.  The weather this trip was the best I’ve ever seen there, two days of basically clear skies and the most perfect hiking weather. 

What was supposed to be just an hour or two turned into 5+ hours and 20-25K in length.  So much fun and just a little sore but it was a great way to spend time with friends before saying goodbye.

We took a cab to the Park just outside of town and ended walking back to town.  I maybe even had a few Calafate berries on the trail.


Top photo is mine and the bottom one is from my friend Glenn.  This penguin was super curious about my camera.  It was a fun few hours visiting Port Lockroy.

I’m living on a boat and getting ready to sail home!


HMS Protector, the last visit of the summer science season.  The Helicopter is from a Chilean ship who have a medical evac on board.  The plane they were supposed put the patient on wasn’t able to make it due to weather and had to return to their ship.

The sunset today.  My season is coming to an end here soon.  Damn it’s been long and super short too.  Perspective is a hell of a thing.
