I'm sure everyone is going to post about the Grand Day Out to Cape Evans. So I'll just cut to the heart of the matter and sum up why you should turn off your computer, get up off the couch and do whatever it takes to get out in the world right up past your ears. And bring a handkerchief...
Blee compares nostril size with his new friend Lester
We were at a dive hut part of the day at Cape Evans and a great fat Weddel Seal was using the dive hole thru the ice as his house. The seal (Nick appeared to know him and claimed his name was Lester) breathed so powerfully his exhalation was moving my hair 8 feet above him. He blew snot on me; I chose to believe in welcome. Thats the really cool part of these jobs: the snot. You can't get that from TV or a movie.
You know you are really there when you feel the snot.
