Next up at the ice pier

Look who else is town:

The Nathaniel B. Palmer pulled into McMurdo a few days ago and today starts a 51 day cruise ending up in Punta Arenas, Chile. The ship is one of two research vessel/ice breakers that are used in the US Antarctic Program for conducting studies at sea and transporting personnel to field camps on the Antarctic Peninsula and to Palmer Station.

View from the bridge.

Another former Polie from last winter, Greg the Comms tech, is on board the ship as the ET, or electronics tech, and he gave me a quick run around the NBP. Greg is loving life at sea, aside from having no internet access, and promises that he'll put tons of photos on his blog Greg's Front Porch when he gets back.

Discovery Hut in the distance - stay tuned for the upcoming blog entry for more on Scott's Hut!
