Sarahs on the flight south

After getting fully outfitted, Team Sarahs had one last night in the New Zealand spring before heading south, then a 4:30am wakeup call for a 6 am check in at the USAP air terminal.

The flights down to “The Ice” are made by either the Air Force (McChord) on a C-17 or the Air National Guard (Schenectady) on a C-130. Today we got to fly on the C-17, which you would think would be very roomy, but passengers are always squeezed in between the cargo, so its quite an adventure!

After 5 hours on the plane, we arrived!
