Winter Wonderland

Well, it's official! I'm Wintering. I signed a contract last week to be the General Assistant at the Heavy Shop through the end of August.

I'm pretty excited, it's going to be a great job and an awesome experience. However, this means I probably won't be back in the States until Spring or Summer of '07 - I'm planning to put my return airfare credit toward a Round-the-World ticket and spend nine months to a year traveling once I get off the Ice. Hopefully I'll be able to see some of you in non-Boulder locales during that time. (Especially those of you that, y'know, don't live in Boulder anyway.) But I'm going to miss you all regardless and hope you'll keep in touch.

I'll be checking my e-mail semi-regularly during the Winter, since we won't be able to receive or send any paper mail once planes stop coming in. If anyone is still planning to send me anything, it'll need to be in Christchurch before February 25th in order to make it down. Address it to:

Rebecca Crane - WINTEROVER
McMurdo Station
PSC 469 Box 700
APO AP 96599-1035


and they'll make a point of getting it on the last mail plane.

Thankyou thankyou thankyou to everyone who's sent cards, letters and e-mails. They totally make my day.

Hope you're all well and warm.

Here's some seals (and me with a funny look on my face):

Congratulations on the extra long stay in winterwonderland.

If you decide to embark on an adventure through Canada afterwards, let me know. I might still be living here, in which case, you'd be a welcome guest! :)

I admire your stamina. Oh - I don't wish you death via my avatar - I'm just thinking of the Shining, and long winters in isolation and stuff... XD

Well have fun. I haven't sent you a letter yet, I am sorry, but you will get one before the last plane leaves. Love and Luck to you
