Food: Lunch was a tasty mix of bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns with croissants … plus a fresh fruit platter and strawberry/mango short cake with whipped cream. Dinner was crusted Tilapia with brown rice, salad and spiced banana cake.
Today was our final day of “work”. Bob and I set up the long-term melt experiment, and Zoe continued with the complicated job of cargo processing. We also began cleaning up our lab spaces and setting aside equipment for when I return in July. Just before dinner, most of the camp practiced the ice core box retrieval for the eventual “cold-deck” flight to Kangerlussuaq.
It is a little weird to think that I am leaving tomorrow. It feels as if I just arrived not too long ago. I suppose I shouldn’t say too much about the departure as there are some polar superstitions … one of which is to not pack your “sleep kit” until you’re “for sure” leaving. We are scheduled for an evening flight, so I’ll have plenty of the day to pack. I sure will miss Summit Camp!
