Clothing Distribution Center
We made it to Christchurch, NZ! We went to bed last night planning to fly to McMurdo today, but weather has kept us in Christchurch for the time being. We did go to the USAP Clothing Distribution Center (CDC) to receive our Extreme Cold Weather (ECW) gear (photos above). While there, we also had our computers checked for anti-virus compliance and received anti-virus (flu) shots ourselves. We checked into a new hotel and spent the rest of the day analyzing data from our last ARTEMIS lake test in TX.
The current plan is that we fly tomorrow, but the forecast indicates more bad weather ahead – if we can’t fly tomorrow, we may be stuck here until Saturday. Christchurch is nice, but we’re keen to get to it!
