Time is ticking away…

The clock is ticking for my departure from Antarctica.

In 5 days time, I will climb aboard the Dash-7 to begin the flight across the Drake’s Passage to Punta Arenas, along with a handful of others from my outgoing wintering team. I will be very sad to leave!

Of course, I can’t wait to catch up with friends and family back in the UK, but this has been my home for the last 18 months, a strange, challenging, beautiful home that I’ve shared with interesting, adventurous and (mostly) highly entertaining people.

In the finest musical tradition, I wrote a song about leaving Rothera.

Keep an eye out for my final Antarctic blog entry, to come in a few short days!

    Hi Adam…Jacko’s gf Nev here. I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog posts and listening to your songs over the last many months. With the struggles in phone delays and near non-existent Skype opportunities any way to stay connected to Rothera from the UK has been welcomed, so thanks for writing so many blogs, and have a safe return trip! 🙂 x
