Last day at pole

I am sooooo out of here. It's has been fun kids, but not that much fun. I miss my wife. I can't wait to get home.
Really I just want to get home so I can go back to work and start playing a the politic games again. OH JOY. :( It's great fun working for weeks on end and getting nowhere. I feel this chapter of life is comming to a close.
The people at pole are great people. I have enjoyed working with most of them (you). I wish you the best in the future. God only knows if we'll meet again. Take care. Posted by Picasa

Kim and Neil at the South Pole

It's weird to think both Kim and I were here. It was a good experience comming down here but the life style just doesnt' fit us.

Still it's pretty cool to make it to the South Pole together.

What will the next adventure be??? Posted by Picasa

Captain FA and I at Christmas

Captain FA - I mean Tim - is having a jolly good time at Christmas after a couple sips of wine and cheer. I wish I could pull half the stuff he pulls in the climbing cave. Posted by Picasa

South Pole Christmas Dinner

James Brown, Xuan Ta and myself enjoyed the Chistmas meal. The Kitchen Crew does a great job to make the meal special.

We call Xuan "XT" meaning Extra Trouble. She is the Title II inspector (EE). She gives us our fair ration by calling us Trouble #1, #2, #3, and #4. She claims we are trying to ruin her vacation. ;) Posted by Picasa

South Poles Premier Bouldering Cave

Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday, Tim, Paul and I hit the bouldering cave. We have set up about 8 different routes. Some with names like Worm, Thing and Brown Bastard. Tim schools us regularly in strength, technique, and lingo. It's great conversation and stress relief. Common converstations are about other climbs, politic, complaints of the day, religoin ,South Park and Kill Bill II. Our big concern is where we are going to climb next year. This building will be demo'ed this winter. :( We are trying to lobey for a new space in the Elevated station. Posted by Picasa
