Christmas Eve in January

It feels like Christmas Eve here this evening, as tomorrow morning the adventure begins. We spent the weekend cleaning Quest and sorting all the myriad supplies and equipment that is on board.  We shopped today for new dishes, cutlery, sheets, pillows and tons of supplies. We also got about 1/2 a tonne of Skittles.
We are all feeling excited
