Andrew off to Antarctica

| October 27, 2008

Not only is the website still not showing pictures, but Andrew has left the country and the continent.   He is off to ski with Ice Axe Expeditions down in Antarctica on a 110 person cruise ship.   Sounds like a great trip, cruise, stop to ski and then get back on to the boat with all if its comforts.   Andrew promises to be in touch and I will update Straightchuter with any info I get.

It was amazing sending him off.  First, he mentioned how he packed a camera recharger.  They have power on the boat??   Duh, of course they do.  Then, seeing his bagage was a real eyeopener on how different of a trip this will be – his suitcase was insy-winsy.  No tent, sleeping bag, stove, or food.  Not even a towel (though I doubt that is on his normal packing list).   He should have made it down to Argentina by now, then they embark on October 30 and set off across the Drake passage.
