    Touring the South Pole Atmospheric Research Observatory with NOAA’s Kelliann Bliss

A few days ago I had the opportunity to be taken on a full tour of the observatory by scientist…

    Turkey Day Five – Antakya to Kilis

    Today was filled with lots of driving, and lots of rural exploration. We started off the day in Antakya, where we had an early morning internet cafe session, along with some fresh juice.

    Turkey Day Four – Renting A Car

    Today was by far the craziest and busiest day yet. We woke up at 8:00, and quickly set up our plan, grabbed a bag of bread, clementines and cheese from the cafe, and headed to the car rental office. Also, the rain had stopped, and blue sky had started to burn through the clouds. We…

  • Landed In Istanbul

    My first day traveling is almost over, and it’s been a long one. I started out on a 19:00 flight out of Newark, to Paris (CDG). The plane was delayed by the winter storm getting out of Newark, so on landing in Paris, I had already missed my flight. I was actually somewhat hoping I…

  • Testing Before (Possible) Departure

    Testing the email to wordpress feature before heading off. For some reason posts send via email are being classified as “pending review” by WordPress, instead of “published”. Something I’ll need to look into- I thinks it relates to the email address used to send the message… Things in EWR are looking ok still… Weather sucks,…

  • Testing Posting Remotely via Email

    I’m testing posting to the blog by emailing a specially created email inbox, which WordPress is set to automatically check, invoked by a server cron job. This will provide an additional means of posting to the blog from the field, where I may not have access to a full web browser with which to load…
