GYRE expedition sets sail tomorrow: Nat Geo is doing a feature!!~

You know you are in Alaska when the only bird you see is an enormous bald eagle flying right overhead…in downtown Anchorage…and its brilliantly sunlit at 10:00pm at night~

The crew is amassing:  Kip Evans and JJ Kelly have been out shooting B-roll all day, Mark Dion is scouting for birds, Andy Hughes arrives sometime tonight en route from the UK, and I am assembling my gear for the 7am bus to Seward and then, we set sail.  The Norseman is undergoing final preparations in Resurrection Bay.  Tonight we meet at the Anchorage Museum for crew introductions.

And the big news is:  National Geographic will be doing a feature on the expedition this fall!!  Here is a teaser:
