Photos With Me In Them

I've had requests for photos that show me in them. I've got a couple from a buddy who took them over the past month. This first picture is from the inside of the C-17 as we traveled from Christchurch, NZ to McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Can you find me?

My head is just under the lower left corner of the crate.

This next picture is of me with friends at Scott Base, the nearby Kiwi base. On some Thursday evenings they host "American Night" and we are invited over for a party.

Pictured from left to right: me, Jacob Woolery, Martin Robinson, Jess Ward and Mel Li.

I am not in this next picture, but since I recently wrote about Condition One, I thought I'd share a photo with you that shows the hospital in a Condition One. This picture is taken from about 40 feet away. If you look carefully, you can make out the red roof of the hospital.

Today's science lecture on penguins will likely be rescheduled because the scientist speaking is still in Christchurch. Now the hope is to try and bring a plane in on Monday, October 6. We will see.

You look well and happy. Glad you have time to update your blog. Photo of condition one makes one pause to think of schools closing for threat of snow!

Dr. Shuwarger,

Good to see you are having a great experience. I look forward to hearing your stories when you return. Have fun and be safe.

So has ANY of main body made it down yet?

Keep posting, its interesting to hear a non "sciencey" perspective on life below the circle.

Looks like you have embraced your surroundings and the people there. Photo of Condition One - makes me think I will take Aruba anyday! Give us more details on hospital life.
