Last day at the pole

My flight leaves in about 5 hours. I’ve bag-dragged (“checked my bag”), moved out of my Jamesway and been drinking coffee all night in anticipation of trying to stay awake until 9pm or so tonight in McMurdo. Not sure that’s the best strategy, but that’s my plan and I’m sticking to it.

Before I go, here’s a photo tour of the main station (click on the thumbnails to get a larger image):

A pretty comfortable place.
