We are on our way!! We left early this morning and drove to Marquette through the rain, which is crazy weather to be having in December. We flew to Chicago, and then on to Los Angeles. We had quite a long layover so we did some reading, people watching. discussed the objectives of the project, (basically educating the non-volcanologist; me, and ate some yummy food! We left for Auckland at 11:00 P.S.T., which is 2:00 a.m. E.S.T., WAY past my bed time. So the first thing I did was get some sleep. We are currently 7 hours into our flight, so we are somewhere over the middle of the Pacific Ocean, only 6 more hours to go! It is 2:30 a.m. on December 6th in New Zealand, and 8:30 a.m on December 5th back in Dollar Bay. Through our travels we have fast forwarded to the next day!
The Adventure Begins!
