Yesterday I got to fly out to the McMurdo Dry Valleys to fix a radio telephone at F6 camp at Lake Fryxell. It was a pretty nice day, and we had good luck with the comms gear. I had a little bit of time, so I hiked from the F6 hut about halfway up to the Commonwealth Glacier. I was afraid our helo ride out would arrive before I got back, so I cut short my hike and headed back to the hut. We landed on Hjorth Hill on the way out to drop off a couple of techs, and again on the way back out to pick them up. What a cool job I have, getting paid to fly around in helicopters to exotic spots!
