On the Brink

Well, here we are, I haven't even posted anything about the Galapagos yet (I have an entry started, though), and I'm on the brink of leaving for another trip. As in, I head out of my apartment in a little over 8 hours to start on my way to Hawaii. I know, I know, rough gig. I will be working for two weeks on the island of Hawaii, aka the Big Island, with the Hawaiian Volcano Observetory to upgrade some GPS sites used to monitor motion of Kilauea volcano.

Many of you have probably already been to Kilauea. Even if you haven't been there, you've almost certainly seen it in pictures. Kilauea has been in near-constant eruption since 1984. It's a very, very cool place. I was there for a week several years ago. This time, I'll be working on the volcano a little longer--and, most importantly, staying on for a week afterwards to vacation. HooRAY! That will be fun, eh? I just spent a lot of money on snorkeling equipment (holy cow, that stuff can be expensive) so that I can have my very own gear. So I'm particularly excited about snorkeling.

I don't know that I'll be able to get online while there, but if I can, I'll try to post some stuff. Hopefully some nice photos, as well. I mean, there's got to be *something* to look at there, eh?
