Our first few days at LDB

We’ve been here a few days, and as expected, our weather port is still not done. We currently have a small space to work in the same building as the galley, or cafeteria, at LDB. We don’t have space to unpack the entire shipping container, nor do we want to, as we would then have to move everything into our weather port later. We unpacked what we needed to work on the flight computer, the card cage boards, and some other things. Today we got (very slow) internet in our space, which everyone is pretty excited about.

The goldfish were a key item to get from the shipping container, at least as far as McBride was concerned!

Our weather port is coming along. On Monday it had a front, and on Tuesday it had walls and insulation! Today they are working on the doors, so we are hopeful that we’ll be able to move in there early next week.

We can’t wander too far from LDB, because there could be crevasses around. Alex found a hole in the snow right next to the weather port and thought he had found a crevasse. He was very excited about it.
