On and On and On

Posted from 39,000 feet over Argentina at 11:15 pm, January 24th, 2006

The long slog home continues. The boat landed in Ushuaia this morning, and the goodbyes began as we left Tom, Rene, Sarah, and others. After arriving in Buenos Aires the farewells continued, with most of the group either overnighting for two days or taking different flights. A handful of us remain on the flight to Dallas tonight, and fewer still will be on tomorrow’s flight to San Francisco. For all intents and purposes the trip is over, and it’s very, very sad to see it end.

On a random note, Tim took a photo of me a couple of weeks ago that was so good we decided it needed to be made into an album cover. The ongoing effort since then has been coming up with track titles. Here’s the lineup thus far (inside jokes for three people, but since I’m one of the three I’ll write ’em down):

T.W. : Chasing the Llama

  1. Chasing the Llama
  2. Man, You Crack Me Up
  3. Is She Bumpy?
  4. Father Nelson
  5. Noodling and Hogging
  6. Bergu
  7. Hugh, or You?
  8. Peckerhead Bob Hit a Possum

  1. oh my god, suddenly you have so many posts. i swear i have checked recently, but maybe i was drunk and couldn’t see the screen. i’m glad you had a good trip and are back safe. also, i’m sorry to hear about the accident at the end–that’s too bad.

    1. you may have been drunk, but all of the new posts just went up at one time the other day since internet access is hard to find when you’re on a boat in the middle of antarctica. and by “you’re on” i meant “i’m on”, and by “boat in the middle of antarctica” i meant “seasick”.
