T-giving!!!


Well once again it was holiday time this last weekend!! Gobble gobble, was the sound in the air but of course there were no live turkeys to be found but oh do we love that day where we eat like its the last meal that we will ever have!! It was a good meal but having all the ruckus go on made it hard to sleep before the meal so I was a bit groggy before but the people in my dorm were festive so that helped me wake up!! I was thinking of home during the meal though!! Dads turkey, Moms rolls the meal in general was good but of course not as good as home. That's ok though! It is what it is. Next comes X-mas and that should be another good meal. At least the two days off in a row is a nice break!


As for the other news in my life is the new girl that I have been enjoying my time with. This place down here is hard to identify what is what. Back home if you are dating someone, you will see them here and there, have your dates and enjoy the building of a relationship,but here it is quite different. I work with the person and eat with the person as well as do activities with her outside of work so it is hard to define what the relationship is!! Nonetheless, it is good and we are having a great time together. Amanda has a great smile and is hilarious. We both make each other laugh all the time. We took a hike the other day and the picture is from that! Anyway, time to run and go for a walk by myself!! Hard to get me time here! Ok, till the next time!!

TIme for my first girl talk!!

So I have been seeing a girl down here and so far it has been good! She works with me, which is different for me cause I have never done the work and play in the same place!! But so far so good! She is a girl that is quite open and blunt, she definitly tells it how it is!! She and I have an agreement that we are going to try and remain anonymous about this amongst co-workers and the community. We want it just to be for us, at least for now! Her name is Amanda and I don't have any good pics yet but I will take one soon!! Well thats all for now, until the next time!!

THIS IS ANTARCTICA!!!













Holy Guacamole, this is crazy, we are stuck in the middle of a herbie, which is a hurricane with snow!! The temps are not absolutly crazy low but are low enough, about -25 below, but the winds are up to about 100-130mph!!!!!!! Just nuts I tell ya, I feel like a kid in the first snow storm of the year but the wind makes it off the rocker!! I have seen some good stuff here but this takes the cake. I really just can't describe how amazing this is!! This for me is the closest I will ever be able to come to know what it was like for Shackelton, Ross and the many other hardened travelers of the old!!! The fact that I am wearing Mountain Hardwear gear and modern day insulation makes it a lot easier to bear, but nonetheless, it is a treat to experience this level of weather, which is truly found only on one place on the planet, Antarctica!!!!!!! There is the pics of the weather forcast on the computer here, pics of the storm coming into the runway, and a video of being right in the middle of it!!!!!!!!
