Off the ice bitchez!

January 1st, 2010 No Comments

It’s hard to believe that yesterday I was at the South Pole. Right now, I’m sitting in my comfy bed at the Devon B&B in Christshurch. Our flight got in really late (this morning it was delayed 3 hours due to “weather enroute”), so as it’s almost 1 am I’m skipping the traditional “go out […]

Merry Christmas!

Hey everyone, merry Christmas! It’s a day ahead here at the south pole, so this morning I woke up to Christmas brunch. Yesterday we had a flight come in with three triwalls full of mail, and I got two Christmas presents that I opened this morning. I now have the largest supply of tea and […]

Come help!” I pulled on my ECW gear and walked down to DZ, […]

Antarctica!

I made it at last! The trip in was entertaining. First, we has a “safety briefing” which basically consisted of them telling us not to get frostbite. It was raining in NZ when they packed us all onto a bus wearing our ECW gear and drove us to the airplane. There was a guy with […]

PQed

September 24th, 2008 1 Comment

I found out today that I am PQed, or physically qualified, to go to Antarctica. That means I can go back to doing all those unhealthy things like eating fatty foods, drinking caffeine, and … well I guess there’s not much else (and lets be honest, I never stopped doing those things in the first […]
