Back in Alaska

I finally finished in Prudhoe Bay/Deadhorse, and got home in time for my birthday. It was a great birthday. I had a couple of nice meals out with Krista and Kendra, and Krista got me such thoughtful gifts. The next day, however I found out I was likely headed back up north. It took a few days to finalize, but I've now been in Dutch Harbor for nearly 4 days while the ship gets repaired and resupplied. Hopefully we'll be able to get our work done quickly and get back, since weather in the Bering and Chukchi seas this time of year is crappy at best. I've got some pics on facebook, and the ship has fairly good internet access so hopefully I'll be able to stay in touch with home by email and post updates from time to time.

Save some turkey, Krista, and we'll have another thanksgiving in a few weeks time.
