Want a reaction from the crowd?

   So this is my attempt to keep everyone informed of what's going on. The title of the blog is what I heard from 99% of the people I told. My mother asked me the question two or three times, and I assumed it was her hearing at first; then it dawned on me how it must sound.
   "What's new?" " Oh nothing much going to Antarctica...."  Yeah I guess it sounds weird. Well that's what I'm doing. I have a 6 month contract as a cook at McMurdo Station Antarctica. There will be about 1100 people there for the "summer".
   So this is the first post of many I hope depending on schedule and such. I leave Sarasota on Tuesday the 16th of August. First stop Denver Colorado for inprocessing and such, then on to Christchurch New Zealand for 2 or 3 days to get cold weather gear, then..... "The Ice".


  1. Hi Son, Mom and I looking forward to your adventure. You will travel with our love and our prayers. Enjoy and give us alot of details.

  2. Good luck in your adventure. I am sure you will do a great job for everyone. You are in my prayers. Travel safe, and call whenever you can.


  3. Good luck brother and stay warm!

  4. Hope you have a wonderful experience. Be safe and know that we will be praying that you have a wonderful time. I'm sure we'll get updates from your mom & dad from time-to-time.
