We knew the day would come when we would have to turn northward and return to Tierra del Fuego, the region from which we started. The Antarctic Peninsula, the South Shetland Islands, and ice in many forms were left astern late last night as we sailed out into the open ocean and the rolling seas of the Drake Passage. With a mild start to the crossing, we had time to reflect on the wide experiences and diverse landscapes of our expedition. We enjoyed a number of presentations and prepared ourselves for the passage as we contemplated the conundrum: how to fit all our gear back into the luggage from which it came?
