    Howdy yosemitebob,

    There hasn’t been much done in that regard – I’ve been doing a bit of experimentation with the data migration just to make sure we don’t loose any posts during the transition and it looks like it will work well enough.

    Either right before my winter at Palmer (2009) or right after, there was a person at Palmer on an Artists & Writers grant doing exactly that…Perhaps a google search would give you some insight into the equipment considerations.

    Comparable to working on The Ice, you ask….

    how about volunteering as a test subject at a proctology school…

    Seriously though, browse jobs with all of the defense contractors. After the last time I was on ice, I went to Taiwan with Raytheon…sweet gig, that! Currently I’m in Abu Dhabi, and the job isn’t too bad at all. There are places in the middle east that I would gladly go work, there are others that I would have to be starving to death before I would even consider it.

    PAE has jobs at various embassies (Russia, China and others), There’s also Kwajalein that seems somewhat popular with ice folk. Palmyra is worth mentioning, as is Ascension Island.

    Please be advised that PAE Inc. hereby rescinds its August 1, 2012 primary offer letter and September 28, 2012 alternate offer letter to you. It has recently come to our attention that, writing as Nicholas Johnson, you are the author of Big Dead Place. It is our opinion that due to the nature and content of this book, you would not be a suitable candidate for employment under the Antarctic Support Contract.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. PAE regrets any inconvenience this decision has caused, but believes that the decision is in both parties’ best interest.

    Regards,

    “I can’t wait until the new contractor takes over” – just about every RPSC employee EVAR.

    That brings up a question…is PHI allowed to fly helicopters over open water under normal conditions?

    no.

    and, my RSS feed for the broader raytheon jobs has a couple Centennial jobs as of 12/15. Given that there have been changes recently to the rayjobs site, glitch is my guess as to why nothing shows up in a search

    I don’t know if this means anything, but I went to the Rayjobs website to look at jobs in Centennial, CO, and the search returned zero jobs. It might be just a glitch, but typically there’s always 30-40 contract jobs along with 3-4 full-time jobs on there. I know there were jobs on there just a few days ago. I assume they are still hiring for winter contracts now, which sometimes goes right up until station closing.

    As of just Wednesday, I got a “are you interested” email….so, hiring by RPSC continues

    Rumor I got was NSF can not decide so they are going to break up the contract and award each bidder a third of the work. :mrgreen:

    Rumor I got was that since xe services has gone through a re-branding, they will be awarded a no-bid contract for Antarctic support services.

    RE: the U.S. citizen only thing…that’s a bit interesting, not sure how I feel about that, but I would speculate that there will end up being some sub-contractor that fills difficult-to-staff positions with other than U.S. citizens

    Here are some things you might look into:

    make a friend at Kenn Borek air services, see if they have anything for you.

    since you’re graduating high school, look into universities that study things in Antarctica, go to the ice, get an education.

    marry an American or a Kiwi or otherwise get citizenship/residency in one of those countries.

    stop watching bad movies!

    That’s a bit of a bummer, Bill, as I’m sitting here wanting to burn the bridge between myself and Ray*….guess I won’t

    I’ve had a friend (of a friend) meet me at the LAX airport international terminal for dinner…works well enough, I would recommend against leaving the airport for such a rendezvous, however.
