12:52 AM The sky over McMurdo is bluer and brighter than I have ever seen it before. The air is wonderfully cool and crisp. It breathes life into this exhausted body. I'm making this entry so late at night because I don't think I can make another entry for a while. We have a big problem with our solar generator that I did not discover until tonight. Tomorrow I will try to get it replaced before we leave for the Dry Valleys. If the generator is not replaced there will be a long wait between journal entries, so please bear with me. I will also have to keep the entries short, but will give more details when I return to McMurdo. Our schedule today involves personal packing, fixing the solar generator, taking a survival course, flying by helicopter to the Dry Valleys, and setting up camp. After reading that list I think I better get to bed.Return to Bill Philips' Page
