A couple of days ago, Lynn and I received a phone call at
work. it was from Michelle, who works at the Chalet. She was
letting us know that both of us had been chosen for this year's
Santa Trip. This is a HUGE deal. Only six people get to take
this trip all season and Lynn and i would be two of the chosen.
Sure, lots of folks get to go to assorted places all over the
continent, but we get to go to seven...SEVEN places, all in one
day...and by HELICOPTER! These seven places are:
We get to wear Santa hats and take presents, mail and treats to
the folks who are out at these locations. Each of them hosts a
scientific camp. They are all accessible by taking a helicopter.
Four of these locations are in the Dry Valleys! When I came down
this year, there were two places I wanted to go before I stop coming
down here...The Dry Valleys and Cape Royds. Now it looks like I
get to go to both...in one day...with Lynn! If you can't tell, I can't
wait for this trip. We'll be gone about 8 hours. it should be the
trip of a lifetime!
