The last flight out of the pole left three weeks ago. I have been a little busy getting the DNF (do not freeze) materials in from the outer buildings, changing rooms, rifling through all the stuff left in skua, and playing jump rope with Christmas lights to get this posted.
Needless to say to go from this….
…to 50 people on station has been an adjustment. From now until next November there is just us, no planes, no mail, no new anything. If it wasn’t on station before last flight, then we will do without it till next fall.
Just this morning a buddy and I were wishing we had one of those liquid shaker things with a blender ball in it so we could mix our dried milk. Funny, I always thought those were stupid. Honestly, how hard its it to use a spoon? Now, it is one of those items that most people could just pop into a store and buy and we just get to remember how stupid we once thought they were- while desperately wanting one.
