Needless to say I am pretty happy with the comforts here, especially since my days camping in Key West living off insects and leafs.

A short update of what we are doing. The main mission for this cruise is to figure out how and how well we can map gas plumes in the deep waters of the mexican gulf with multibeam echosounders. After calibrations procedures outside Key West, we have spend the last few days few days on transit from Key West towards the Deepwater Horizon oilspill site using the time for staff training (i.e. making me stop run around like a lost and) of the ships sonars systems and getting in to our rutines.

Ironicaly while I went to sea in nice calm weather there has been both a earth quake and now a hurricane that has hit Baltimore and the whole east coast of the US, hope everybody is safe and sound and that there is still something left there to return to in October. Take care all you people in Baltimore!
Time to go back to the dungeons.
