    It’s magical, and wonderous, and people will call you FNG (pron. ‘fin-gee’)…

    Yeah, it’s magical, like going to Hogwarts…

    …Except the Hogwarts Express train flies, it’s noisy, and it takes far too long. And the castle is either too warm or too cold. Daigon Alley doesn’t have what you need, and the owls all look like skuas. Your wand either emits fog or just doesn’t work at all. The Ministry of Magic is not on your side, in fact you’re better off not calling attention to yourself at all. Everything is cursed or jinxed. And there are entire departments filled with Voldemorts.

    On the up side, there are lots of ghost-like apparitions running around. If you winter-over you might look like one too!

    Have fun.
    😉

    Sorry, no pets allowed.  However, you can ‘adopt-a-penguin’ once you get here.  They can’t fetch, or rollover, but they’re still a hoot.

    Guess you missed the couple of hundred Adelies we had between town and Hut Point, one Sunday, last January.

    Yeah, there can be hundreds of penguins or none. Varies from year to year. Last year was a good one. For 2 days it looked like every juvenile penguin for 50 miles in every direction decided to check out McM and the Swedish icebreaker making it’s way in.

    Total fingee here.

    I actually haven’t even PQ’d yet. I’m a last-minute hire for IT networking at Pole. Just got the call on Monday.

    I am obsessed with this experience. Yes, I am nervous. I dream about it, now. I hear many conflicting reports. The Raytheon team is all calm and confident for me. Others I have spoken to with several seasons of ice time are really warning me to look deep and question the whole thing.

    I’ve lived in Colorado for twenty years, a few of them at 8000+ feet MSL in Aspen. But, I’ve never seen below -70°F with windchill. I have no phobias with isolation, am easily self-entertained (yeah, I hear you giggling and snickering…that’s another topic, I bet), but am pretty social and lively when the time comes, as well.

    This will be an epic experience of body, mind, emotion, discretion, control and yielding, I am sure. It may be a big crevasse in which I have to arrest my fall and hope I survive. Or, it could be a new type of flight. It is all certainly unknown.

    My folk are tentatively looking to have me leave CONUS ~10/26. Assuming I PQ, naturally.

    Is there a dartboard at Pole? 🙂

    I recommend taking a deap breathe and enjoy whatever the adventure seems to toss your way.  Looking forward to working with you!!

    Well, I do love adventure. It will be hard to leave the toys and trappings of Rocky Mountain adventure life behind for something entirely more primal. I’m sure going to miss my road bike and motorcycle next summer (when the sunlight goes away).

    Will you be at Pole, Jen? What will you do there?

    Got my packet today, and scheduled all of my appointments for Tuesday.

    Anyone know people who want to rent a house in Boulder county, Colorado?
