Cape Royds helo flight

This post (and my last post) go out to my brothers, Tait and David. They bought me a video camera for Christmas because they were sick of my attempts at time lapses. They even put footage of my dog, Sabah, on the camera for when it reached me in Antarctica which was elating. While I'm not sure the results are any less shaky, there is definitely a lot more in here. Thanks, guys.
