9:00am to 6:30pm Cheesemans' staff duties which include meet-and-greet in the hotel lobby as expedition participants and staff arrive, pre-expedition staff meeting, and more meeting-and-greeting
6:30 to 8:30pm Dinner at the hotel. Budweiser is listed in the Imported Beers section on the menu! Had a nice dinner with Gina, Ray, Irene (my roommate for the trip), and Tom Murphy (leader of our South Georgia Island expedition aboard the Hans Hansson, a 12-passenger vessel -- this expedition will stay around the island for about a month and conduct penguin research).
10:30pm Sleep, preciously needed sleep...
