We're all still here, the rest of the ANI staff and myself making a valiant effort to eat all the steaks and drink all the beer in Punta.
Had a briefing today from the Ilyushin safety officer which was pretty interesting, once they've set out no ANI flight has ever had to turn back from the Antarctic, not one. Guess that's why departure delays are so common, burning through 72 tons of fuel and getting nowhere would get a bit hard on the wallet. The advance team is still beavering away in the blizzard and getting more of the main structures of the camp built, by the time we get there there'll be nothing left to do.
Getting a bit bored with waiting now, ah well it's a beautiful day here and the staff training barrel has been thoroughly scraped, might head to the beach.
