to everyone deploying, new people and forgetful people: the Ice is DRY. I wanted more hand lotion when I was there, and there isnt much of a choice in the store. Bring good hand lotion for your dry hands, and good face moisturizer for face. I am typing this to remind myself. I am getting obsessed with returning!
Nice to meet you. I now remember seeing your webpage, from a link on Zondra’s website. You’ve traveled a bit, haven’t you? Hope the skies are finally clearing some in Fairbanks. You all have had a wild summer, full of heat, and fire. Probably be one cold-ass winter coming up.
I spent three 6-month seasons down in Denali. Went up to Fairbanks every weekend, though. I do enjoy shopping at Fred Meyer, and Gulliver’s.
Looking forward to meeting you. I’ll be across the road from you, in Bldg. 120.
Amy can’t say it enough. You will never find a dryer place than McMurdo. As I read her note it occured to me that you might want to consider sending down a humidifier. There are tons floating around McM, but as with all skua items you may not get one.
I’ve got one tucked away, but I still remember trying to sleep with a wet washcloth over my face trying to stop my nose from drying out.
You agree , Amy?
thats right Mike, there are a few humidifiers floating around Mactown. I almost Skua’ed me one last season, but a friend gave it to another friend! D’oh! Or you can make friends with someone in Crary Lab, those people have the best humidified skin! I saw my roommate once, bending over the sink in the bathroom, letting her face soak in some moisture with a washcloth.
