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…

After 29 years of living in hot and humid south east Georgia, I decided to embark on a new adventure that led me to Antarctica. After 27 months of working on the Ice (not consistently, I had a four month break in between) I returned home and back to my old 911 center. After a year of restlessness, I embarked on another new adventure. I now live, work and play in the Cayman Islands as a 911 dispatcher. Fast forward three years! I'm headed back down to the ice!

  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.
