Aloha! Pictures, pictures, pictures. A view from the truck on GA day.
Over looking McMurdo while doing official Crary counting.
60 mph winds after pinsetting. It didn’t show up very well but I like the effect.
My first night of pinsetting with Matt, an old pro.
Emily got to go in a Piston Bulley to Castle Rock (which broke down). I loved her pictures, who can ever have enough pictures of Castle Rock? She got some good archive photos. Note the demonstration of the use of the yellow flags.
I had some second thoughts about putting up some of this week’s pictures but I decided it was for perspective purposes. The following are “Yearbook” pictures. Remember last week when I had the group photo of the Galley? Well, every department is getting them. This week I have a lewd picture of the Rec crew’s interpretation of “group photo” and the last picture I have is of the BFC girls. The BFC really is the science support. They take care of all the outdoor gear for the scientists. The background is a row of the tents that the field sights use.
A neat distinctive thing about Antarctica is that any vehicle that leaves the station has to pack a survival bag. These are provided by the BFC and it’s a load. Over 50 lbs and ready for 3 days of camping. The theory is that you get stranded AND your vehicle catches fire. You are still prepared.
