Loading day began with a drive from Beaverton to Newport through Corvallis and over the coastal mountains. We arrived at lunchtime so I sent the team out to get lunch while a few of us (me, Jude Apple, Lydie Herfort, and Bill Howe) went to Fred Meyer to get some last minute supplies. The ship's crew helped get our gear on board with a crane. We set up the labs and then headed out to station NH-0 (i.e., the Rogue Brewery) for a pre-cruise meal.
