Guess I better get to packing!

On Thursday I start traveling to the Falkland Islands to meet up with the RRS James Clark Ross! I'll be away about a month and start traveling Thursday evening.  My first stop out of Atlanta is Santiago, Chile, where I'll hopefully arrive Friday morning.  I have a day in Santiago and then I catch a flight Saturday morning to the Falkland Islands.

Unfortunately, I don't have much time to explore the Falklands this trip, but here's a post from the last time.  The ship departs from Mare Harbour Sunday, October 23rd.  Last time we left from Stanley, so I'm looking forward to a new departure spot.    
Stanley, Falkland Islands

I'll be teaming up with the British Antarctic Survey for another benthic sampling trip.  This time we're headed to South Georgia in the sub-Antarctic chain of islands.  Stay tuned for posts about our trip! Lots of science, cool animals, and fun excursions to come...
