This is Mike. More or less I’m the one who has put the photo’s on this site. My wife and I have just returned for our third winter in Antarctica. I guess we are just a little crazy but so far we are enjoying it. I’ll be putting in photo’s again in a few weeks once things settle down and all the summer people leave. I tried the chat room a couple of years ago but the time difference doesn’t work to anyones advantage. For the most part we are working or asleep when most of the rest of the world has free time. Sometimes during the winter I sign on to msn Messenger. Put me on your list
Things are really crazy here this year. We have a giant iceberg north of us that has prevented the sea ice from melting and flowing out to sea. We’ve had a couple of icebreakers trying to keep open a path but it’s been a real mess for the boats trying to get in here. Yesterday, a week late, we finally got in our annual supply ship. It had been stuck in the channel waiting on the icebreakers to clear a path. We still have to get in our fuel ship and a science boat.
Right now the base in on 24 hours a day operations until the boat gets unloaded. I’ll have some photo’s as soon as I can get my computer hooked to the web. Things are a bit too hectic now to spend too much time on the web. In a couple of weeks it will improve.
I’ll be active on ham radio again this year. 14243 around 0300Z. sunday. That puts it on Sat. Night in the states. Listen in and give a shout if you hear me.
