I'm shipping out today. My flight is at 2:10 and I'll be in airports and planes for the 24 hours or so. I don't know if I'll be able to update this blog while I'm in New Zealand. I actually fly to Antarctica on the 13th, so I should be back online then.
I just wanted to thank everyone. I never realized how many people cared about me until they started calling and emailing to wish me luck. I'll be back in no time flat and hopefully with some awesome stories to tell.
I put some more pictures from the tailgate up here.
