The Falls

The Falls
Beautiful pics Dave. Real wow factor this one. Do you reckon this falls would become frozen like an icicle in winter or would it simply not flow? Needless to say we don't get such wonders in Oz.

We love road trips. Love them!
Road tripping from Newfoundland to Manitoba would be grand. I'd prefer to do it slower than you did.... but I'd do it at any speed. We all have different interest and I applaud Steve for finding the answers about the gun shot wound. We are all driven in different ways. Smile. MJ

Slower Drive
We love to do that road trip as an enjoyable few months of exploration. It was more of a 'vehicle relocation trip' than an vacation. Another time perhaps.

The Road to the Mine

What a fantastic drive
The perfect road. Peace and serenity.

Much more enjoyable than driving ten hours a day!

Light at the end of the tunnel

Ice Cave
There is a glacier about twenty minutes out of Longyearbyen by snow machine that has an accessible crevasse. The entrance is the snowy tunnel on the picture. the crevasse continues for quite some distance before ending at a sheer drop off. The 'cave' is only accessible during winter as it is full of water during the short summer. There are several coal mines on the island. The town still gets its energy from burning coal.

Longyearbyen.

The Streets
Brrr indeed. None of the streets have names, people just know where things are I guess?

The Geographic North Pole

We made it
Definitely FIVE STARS...Well done

The Geographic North Pole

Five Stars
I was buzzing... I think in the past ten years or so I have never buzzed so much after reaching a destination. To be somewhere and nowhere simultaneously - a really great feeling.

Bipolar
When does one admit to being bipolar like a Badge of Honour? When you are the Cranster that's when. Yep Dave. I think you are right. Two Poles = Bi-polar...a title you can wear with pride!

Robert Peary stand aside
I missed this blog as I was in another world when you posted it. Yet again I stand amazed you are one tough dude David. Maybe there is walrus as well as polar bear flowing through your veins. Whatever it is Robert Peary and Frederick Cook can dispute who made it to the North Pole first. Disco Dave has planted the Cranster flag and not only the South Pole but also the North Pole is his...stand aside pretenders!

Bipolar
Does this make me bipolar? It was a very fast and furious trip, but well worth the effort. It was certainly quite a novel destination!

Great transportation.

Our transport to the Pole

Awesome Mi8
The helicopter ride was definitely a highlight! Those machines are mean. We hovered above the pole for a few seconds then landed fairly close by.

North Pole
I can imagine an empty expanse of white.... Congratulations. I'll bet the joys of this experience will be with you for sometime. Phenomenal !!!!

White expanse
Amazingly white! we were all buzzing for quite some time! The rush in finding the elusive 90 degrees, was what did it for me. It was quite the destination.
