We continued our trend of sleeping-in. I woke up at 1000 and began working on the blog. I finally woke Jason up for lunch at noon. Enroute to the galley, we ran into Emrys who had, with Sven’s help hooked us up for a tour of the Oden this afternoon. The Oden is an icebreaker that is owned/manned by the Swedish and chartered by the NSF. Sven is one of our friends at Pole who works for ice cube – he is Swedish and knows the first mate of the boat. We all went for lunch together and then dressed for our field trip to the boat.  For high resolution pics, see the gallery: Days 2 and 3 of R&R

Running on little to no sleep, we were scheduled to leave for MacTown for R&R on the first flight. We both had quite a bit to get finished up before leaving, so we were both rushing around all morning before heading out. For higher resolution pics, see the gallery: Pole to MacTown (more…)

My replacement is here (but not when I am not) Jan 9-Jan 14 (LAS)

On Tuesday, I finished the root cause analysis of the emergency response to the power plant that occurred on dec 26th.  Because we had some injuries, I spent a lot of time trying to backtrack to decisions/protocols/procedures that led to the injuries.  I’m pretty happy with the lessons learned to take from it and share with my replacement next November.  Amber flew in today, she is my replacement while I am on R&R next week in McMurdo (She has my same position in McMurdo, but there are 3 to 4 EH&S people there during the summer).  The funny part is that I am showing her around and giving her familiarization training, but she is leaving when I do to return to McMurdo (bed space keeps her away next week).

Another Sunday - January 7th (JRS)

Today was the day of the big store sale.  We had to play volleyball a little early since they were setting up for the sale in the Gym at 4.  It was a pretty weak turn out, but we had fun, none the less.  The store set up the gym with quite a large array of clothes, hats, patches, stickers, etc. and put it on sale in order to reduce their extra stock.  We got a few shirts and hats for ourselves as well as some souvenirs for some folks we hadn’t had a chance to shop for yet.  Just like a regular sale, the prices were good, but they didn’t always have the size we wanted.

The Grantees are coming! Jan 8-12th (JRS)

This morning I headed out to the flight line to welcome a couple of Grantees (what Raytheon calls scientists working on projects here).  The 2 Grantees were coming in from the University of Michigan to make a few upgrades on their instrument.  Their project comes under my domain, but the purpose of the experiment is to be autonomous, so I rarely work on it and don’t know too much about it.  So, helping out while they’re here is a good opportunity for me to become more familiar with the project.  After an in brief with Al, my boss, we felt we were prepared and more than able to do the work that they had to do.  (more…)

Can you believe there was another Saturday of parties? - Saturday, Jan. 6 (LAS)

This morning was a busy “prep” one for me.  I was getting stuff somewhat organized so that Amber and I could work on inventory when she comes next week.  She is the EH&S lead in McMurdo and will be covering for me during my R&R (our one week of vacation) in McMurdo.  I was pretty busy all the way up to dinner with meetings and trainings.  Jason went to the store and got some wine for tonight’s festivities and we eventually met up for dinner.  There was a birthday celebration, followed by the Met crew’s wine and chees party, followed by bingo, followed by impromptu volleyball.  For higher resolution pictures, see the web gallery: J-Love, Wine, and Bingo

Hand and Foot - Tuesday, Jan 2, 2007 (LAS)

We taught some of our new friends the card game of hand and foot.  Jason’s brother and sister-in-law, Chris and Jenn, taught us the game a few years back and we love to play it.  At one point, we had a 4-team game going.  It seems like we played all night (that REALLY reminded us of the fun times with Chris and Jenn!)
