Cargo loaded and now aboard the AraonApril 13, 2013
We have been busy sorting our equipment and organizing our transfer from land to sea. In the few spare moments, we managed to see the sights and take a few photos.
Most of our time ashore was spent in the DAMCO and AGUNSA warehouses, looking at inventories and tracking down extra gear.
We are aboard the R/V Araon now and enjoying a relatively smooth ride. I think that will change here pretty soon, as the swells seem to be getting larger. We are tying everything down so that it does not slide across the deck of our rooms and lab space.
We’re all in great spirits and are looking forward to getting our boots on the ice!
