It's been a while since I've updated the blog, so I'm going to jot a few notes about now before going back to post some pictures of recent adventures.

I'm sitting at home with newly-white world outside, the snow still coming down. I've come home a bit early and wasted no time in setting up my computer and heating up leftovers from last night's dinner out. Indian food. Radio's on. Last week, my coworker (and friend), Nicole, and I headed down to Socorro, New Mexico to lead an introductory short course/training in GPS survey methods. I spent one day in the field and then another day up in Albuquerque with my Antarctica friend Nate afterwards. All was more or less good, but I was glad to get home. And I'm glad to be home.

[Nate's nine-year-old puppers, Papas, in motion. The name is potatoes, in Spanish. She is one big potato. A big, fat, sweet, soft, lovely pit bull / chocolate lab mix.]

I have some *quite* exciting travels coming up, so stay tuned. I guess the really good stuff doesn't start until June, but who knows. I'm sure there will be some little adventures before then.

Hello Beth,
Through a series of links starting at Boing Boing, I managed to find your blog and wanted to know where the RSS feed was for future reading.

Hi Beth,
We are trying to locate Bob Omstead from Albany, Oregon. Looks like he may have written you above on March 10. We are his good friends, could you forward our email to him. I would really like to talk to him. We have been friends for years.
