September 11, 2008

We survived! Alex and I wed on August 30, 2008. We spent a few days in the mountains of West Virginia to celebrate our marriage and are now back in Chapel Hill, NC for a few weeks. As we unpack from the wedding, we are beginning to prepare for our upcoming adventure. On October 13th, Alex and I are scheduled to arrive in Antarctica, to serve as good old-fashioned work-camp laborers for 4 1/2 months. Alex has taken a job as a dining hall assistant (lunch lady) and I accepted a position as a materialsperson (described by my supervisor, "it will be like working for a large and complicated Home Depot, except in a frozen desert"). We'll see...

Our Antarctic time should bankroll us a more proper (6-month South Pacific) honeymoon.
