Looking back 2 days before shipping to Antarctica

From my expedition manager,

“I know. It’s getting crunch time. You must have a lot going on. Are you nervous?”

My reply,

“More like thinking about 100 things to do, not do, what to do, will the food be enough, better to carry more & go slow than starve & go fast? Wish I had a better tent stuff sack now that I see the loading. Terrible fatigue from no sleep from my mind spinning. I’m looking forward to Antarctica so I can get a physical fatigue nite of sleep. Haha!”
