Too far south to fish.

Here we are again in McMurdo Station Antarctica. I have been here for a couple of months and still have a few more before I am back on the H20.
Things down here are going along just fine. I have been to West Antarctica for a week. Almost spent Thanksgiving out on the flat white but we made it back to the big city in time for the two day weekend.
Other than that all is normal down here. I have been out quite a few times via helicopter to our 'local" communication sites.
I am scheduled to leave on Friday to fly out approximately 100 miles to inspect a tower we built a few years ago. This trip should just be a day trip
I just realized it is 12-12-12!!! I am not sure what that means but I like it. Actually for most of my friends back in the states today is only the 11th. Anyway.
I just thought I should write a little something so that my blog is not shut down and wiped away into the ethos called the internet.

Here us a photo of the view from the top of a 30ft tower we built last week. A few 1000 years and some more global warming and we can turn all of this pesky ice into warm water and we can set up a fishing lodge in Antarctica.
