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
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):
