Sad that you are all missing the nonstop Boxing Day sales.
And the production or choice of fashion masks that make personal statements.

On the 0200 to 1000 shift.
Busy couple of weeks in many ways.
From code red 72hr lock downs/ room isolation.
Xmas and new year celebrations.
And a weeks work formwork and concrete.
Now have the heaters on to keep the concrete warm, hence mine shift for supervision and refuelling.

Map of Antarctica as it was 10000 years ago.
Antarctica,_Bouvet_Island,_discovery_map_1754.jpg


This ancient outline was copied onto a modern map (1737).
LHS is ice free because the actual equator was shifted 15 degrees back in the day.
Buache (fr.) mistook the antarctic circle for the tropic.
Otherwise, good one !

Also posted on Twitter (please @nfip thank whoever posts the Twitter updates from the base). I think what you didn’t let on yesterday is it is actually the wine supply (fuel is a reasonable cover story...) being pumped in over the 1km of pipe.


I'm actually in these pics, in the IRB clearing the bergy bits from the wine fuel line.

the girls have a separate room they have claimed as a quasi, ladies lounge where they hang out
Pretty much my definition of hell - segregation and girlie stuff

Although hopefully the women who go to antarctica aren't too bad like that
