Friday

Day of Departure

Los Angeles, California

The bags are packed, Gabriella is strapped in, and we look ahead to the discoveries and challenges that face us on the roof of the world.


We are not a superstitious bunch, but on the night before my flight, I sat in a Taiwanese boba tea shop, and opened a fortune cookie:


Let good fortune be with our crew, the scientific explorers of the world.

Jack, to all of you I say good luck, happy hunting (hope you find a find that stuns the world and makes the front cover of National Geographic), and, most important of all, keep safe!

You are so going to have to tell me ALL about it when you get back. :-D
