Antarctica 2010 - 2011
Unloading a C-17 at Pegasus airfield during Winfly.
Another season on the ice. This season I was able to come down during Winfly, arriving the 10th of August and departing about the 3rd week in February.
I love this job
The big event for me this year was my one week of building cargo at CTAM-Central Trans Antarctica Mountains. Please copy and paste the below link into your address bar for more information.
A large storm delayed my departure in late February 2011 by a few days. We had parts of the Ross Ice Shelf break away along with many of the pressure ridges near Scott Base.
Please copy and paste the below link into your address bar for to see a satellite photo of the open water as of Feb 26th. The light line from right to left is the ice road going from Ross Island to the Pegasus Ice Runway.
Now its time to head north to Thailand for a bit of warmth and a nice beach.
