Today I am dropping Natalie off at the airport, she leaves with the rest of Lonnie Thompson's crew today. If time allows, I hope to sneak up the mountain they will be surveying. My crampons packed points together. (The opposite equals blood and leaking water bottles.)
My own flight in 7 days! I will arrive in Lima around 10 pm with several bottle-filled coolers and a bobbing head, skimming the crowd for Jeff, Michel and a ten dollar cell phone.
I've handed Berry my last dissertation paper, but I expect there will be edits. Unfortunatelytherein, I throw in Old English whereases and howtohenceforths into my geochemical discourse and may forget a few journals that my 14+ year dry valley veteran adviser will suggest.
Becki took me along in her search for evapoconcentrated Great Basin waters, and I shall whotohenceforthery take her (in laminated form) with me to Peru. Off to Natalie's for some just-under 50 pound duffles.
