IGERT Cohort #2, consisting of Sam, Nina, Ben, Alex, Thomas, and Me are packed and ready to go to Greenland for 4 weeks. We figured out the cargo tracking system (CTS) of the National Guard and CH2MHill’s Polar Services and delivered our cargo to NY two weeks ago.
Next hurdle, get the 6 of us, some faculty, an undergrad, and all our personal gear to NY for 5am Sunday the 17th (My mom’s birthday – Happy birthday Mom!). I suspect it’ll look like this:
5am on the 17th our adventure begins on this beast as we travel thousands of miles away from the heat wave of North America to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. Kangerlussuaq means “big fjord” in Greenlandic and the American’s call it Kanger. So far I hear 65 and sunny in Kanger, can’t wait!
Greenland here we come!
