For a while this will be focused on my trips to the South Pole to work on ARA and IceCube experiments as a physicist and instrumentation scientist from the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center at the University of Wisconsin.
Here Dr. DuVernois will ponder the world, the web, and all things in the middle. If that isn't a noble enough project, I'll also post interesting links. This web journal is held in lieu of a writing journal and continues my UMN, MySpace, and Facebook blogs.

From the C-17 cockpit
As a nice treat, we got to go up into the cockpit of the C-17 enroute down to the ice.
Went up there once in the middle of the flight and then again later as we were crossing the ice sheet (see previous entry for some photos).
