Made it to WAIS Divide!

Posted December 8th, 2008 by celene.carillo@oregonstate.edu

Just wanted to let you know that I made it to WAIS safe and sound.  The weather and food here are fantastic.  Its hard to believe that I’m on top of an ice sheet in the middle of Antarctica.  It still boggles my mind, even though I’ve been thinking about it for so many months. I got my tent set up and am grateful to be finally settling in somewhere.  It has take me 3 weeks of travel to get from Oregon to WAIS.

Thats all for now, more blog updates soon.

    Wow, three weeks actually sounds fast considering that you probably had to take a half dozen different modes of travel. How did you travel across to the ice sheet? Snow mobile? Dog sled? Are you staying in a “tent” city or is it a permanent structure?

    How long are the days where you are at? Any wildlife spotting?

    Best, Sunny
