Let the packing commence

The gang’s all here

 packing material DCP’s research season will start soon for both the Bahamas (DE and Bimini) and Japan. This means that all the researchers are gathered in Kathleen’s basement stuffing their equipment into sturdy luggage. In case you might be wondering, the key to securely packing irreplaceable and expensive equipment used for recording dolphin behavior is…underwear. Yes, underwear. To get the MVA (camera and audio array) to fit snugly in the case, it must be carefully supported and lined with soft objects that will protect it from bumps and spills that occur during travel. By far the best material for this is underwear. Now you know.
Tomorrow I am off to NYC to catch my flight to Japan. The journey begins!
