Out of Town!

Hello Friends!

We are both out of town this week, but we will be back next week with recounts of our adventures. Liz is on a plane right now headed towards the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, and tomorrow I head to WAIS Divide, a deep field camp on the Western Antarctic Ice Shelf. In the meanwhile, please enjoy some recent photos!



Stacks of earrings ready to go out to new homes at the big craft fair this week.

A scene from some instructional videos we made for people at South Pole. I'm bringing the videos down with me to help teach people how to clean better.

Lolo, our fearless Delta driver.

Janos and other stuffed bellies applauding the galley for doing such a good job on preparing Thanksgiving dinner without freshies since the weather hasn't allowed any flights in.

Feeling a little bit sad to be parting ways for a week or so, but awfully lucky to have just spent the best year of my life yet with this man. Here's to many, many more.


Antartica often seems like the land of ice, sun, and flags. Cape Armitage, South of McMurdo.

The odd colors of Ob HIll.

Flags marking a crossing of a fuel line.

Cape Armitage Loop winds over Ross Island, through Scott Base, and over the sea ice towards the runway before turning back towards McMurdo.

A cozy Thanksgiving in McMurdo, and what I am most thankful for.

P.S.- Here is one of the instructional videos we made. Enjoy!

  1. I love this! That is the best picture of Lolo ever. Also, I see the janos were once again at the same tables for Thanksgiving — keeping the tradition alive! Enjoy your boondoggles, you two!

  2. Ha…I loved the video! The creepy clown will give me nightmares for a few years to come but it was worth watching. Did you make any more videos? Your pictures are great too. Have a safe journey and good luck with your jewelry sales at the craft show guys. Miss you both very much.

  3. …part of me is surprised that you decided to spend some of your ‘off’ time making that video, and yet…some of me is not! πŸ˜€ (not sure i could do that the whole day long though, hmm…)

    love these photos…and your banner above the bed! ❀ have safe trips both of you… πŸ™‚

  4. Oh man, missing you guys so much, the video was great! The pictures, as always, are awesome and I’m glad I can get a glimpse into the life of an antarctic resident. Have fun on your trips, can’t wait to read the rundown when you get back!
