Hey, Running Girl –
A week ago I accepted a DA position at McMurdo. I’ve never been down to the Ice before, but from everything I’ve heard, yeah, it’s a great “foot in the door” opportunity. Also, from everyone I’ve spoken to, it sounds like working as a DA is a lot of fun. (Hard work, too, of course – but it seems there’s a lot of “team spirit” with the dining crew.)
Anyway, if you accept, let me know – I’d love to talk w/ a fellow newbie before we get down there.
All the best,
