Domestic arrangements aboard the JOIDES Resolution


Mo and I have simple but attractive adjoining cabins -- bunk, sink, storage, shared shower and toilet between cabins. Wireless access in cabins. Meals served in galley 5-7 AM, 11AM-1PM, 5-7PM, 11PM-1AM (for night shifts). Lots of choices, cafeteria style. There is a small gym with treadmills, etc., but I'm getting more than enough exercise up and down stairs to various decks and opening the heavy, safelike doors to outside. Weather continues good. Word is that the harbor pilot will come aboard at 10:30 to take us under the bridge at midnight low tide, with literally inches to spare!

Another science post in the morning.
