How To Get There From Here
Antarctica is far away. So, how does one get from Seattle, WA to McMurdo Station in Antarctica? I will be flying from Los Angeles on a 13.5 hour flight to Christchurch, New Zealand. A military cargo jet will then take me from Christchurch to McMurdo. The map of my route is detailed below. Each stopover point has a description of my itinerary. The trip starts on Friday September 17, but I will not actually land on the Antarctic content until September 23 at the earliest (weather permitting).
The map is interactive. Next post will be from Christchurch, NZ!
