Mail call – Antarctica style

Ok, so since the last of the Winfly planes comes in tonight, we have actually started receiving mail.  All mail goes to building 140 and then several volunteers help divide it.  The fire department regularly volunteers people and is able to bring all of the mail to the firehouse instead of making all of the fire dept employees wait for their packages and letters.  It’s a great thing because I got the two packages I sent myself and a letter from my parents.  🙂

Getting mail in Antarctica is a big thing.  It’s kind of like Christmas, especially if you know something is coming.  It’s like a surprise part if you weren’t expecting anything.

Along the lines of mail, the next outgoing mail that will leave Antarctica will be going out in October-ish.  So it should be November-ish by the time you get your letters or postcards or cards that I send you (if you sent me your address :))

I know this is a really short post but I thought I’d let you all know WHY I haven’t sent y’all anything.  Planes are very picky about flying around here… for some strange reason…

Hello! I'm a so-so photographer, okay writer, former 911 telecommunicator and world's best Aunt. Closing in on 40, I find myself at a point in my life where I have no idea what I want to do next. I'm currently spending summer 2021 in Texas with my boyfriend, Robert and helping him start building a plane before he goes back to Antarctica in August.

  1. I would like to point out that I have sent you several somethings and have yet to receive so much as a postcard from you.
