Zombie Apocalypse – What’s happenin’ on the ice this week

No zombies, yet.  I have a sneaky suspicion that before long we’ll see a few of the suckers.  Not real ones, of course.  McMurdo would be a poor place for real zombies to be.  Not because we’re lacking in richness of brain matter, but because they’d run out pretty quickly.  Then what are they going to do?

Fact:  We have some people with amazing intellect on this continent.  We have several people with master degrees, ph.d’s and other various levels of education.  I know one person with several different bachelor degrees in addition to his masters.  And we have some very “street smart” people.  The few of us who don’t have college educations.  

The thing I love the most about this place is the way everyone treats each other.  We are all equals.  Race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background… who cares.  It’s an extremely tight knit community.  We all look after one another.  We all care about one another.  

Next Sunday, the 28th, is the 34 Social.  The 34 Social attendees will be the women of McMurdo.  There are 34 of us, hence the name.  It looks like it will be an excellent time, and both Marsha and I will be able to attend.  I’ll post more after the get-together.  I’m hoping that I’ll be able to talk some people into doing photo-shoots because my creative side needs an outlet.  

All in all, I’m doing pretty well.  My emotional post a few weeks ago let me get a lot off of my chest and I’m feeling much better.

Stay safe!

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!
