Elise Big Red


This is me. All geared up at McMurdo Station, Antarctica in 2004. It was probably -35F ambient outside, and I get chilly at 68F. Why the heck was I in Antarctica? Because it was the adventure of a lifetime – working to support NSF scientists on station for the USAP. Because I know that when I’m old, I’ll have more regrets of things I haven’t done than things I have. And I survived Antarctica knowing that you can do anything with the right set of tools and equipment (like Big Red up there).
