One Month Out– Exactly: New Team Members, New Plane Tickets, and Vice Grips

When we postponed our trip in October, I suppose you could say I had a hard time letting go. One morning this winter, my husband, Peter, needed to fix one of his crampons. “Have you seen the vice grips?” he asked. I was making coffee. I offered a somewhat cagey “mmmmhmm” in response.

We’re finding species new to science, we’re starting a new … Read More
