    on the ice for 3 seasons and loved every minute of itǃ 96 to the very sad decom. the greatest time of my career. been to the pole many times, as well as a few other stationʹs. if there are any other 6ʹers out there that had the privilege to sign the “warm up hut” after changing a prop or engine, i have bad news. the air national guard has taken it upon themselves to destroy it and build a new one. a real shame as that door had a lot of history on it, dating back to the early 70ʹs. just thought you might like to know.

    hi icepirate,i was wintering at mcmurdo in 96-97, i believe that was the last season for vxe-6 and the winter-over navy crew there. a great bunch of folksǃhadnʹt heard about the warm-up hut, but i hope the tiki hut has survived — an entire room decorated in bamboo. i changed hands from year to year and iʹm not sure where (or even if) it is today.cheers,glenn
