Before I knew it, I was out on the "flight deck" (a large area of ice somehow made flatter than the surrounding landscape) with wind howling around my headset. Even through this, as the enormous ski-equipped cargo plane approached, I could hear the head fuelie behind me yelling "IT WILL LOOK LIKE IT'S GONNA RUN YOU OVER, BUT DON'T WORRY. THAT HASN'T HAPPENED FOR A FEW SEASONS. JUST STAY CLEAR OF THE PROPELLORS!"
I licked the ice off of my lips as we crouched under the engines to hook up the fuel lines.
Then I slept through dinner and read a book about Mexico. It was a good day.
