143..no 139…no 141… I’ve lost count


Over the past month, we’ve had two medevacs. Right now I’m not sure how many people we have on station. What I do know, is that we no longer have four firefighters. We now have seven. And that is a good thing. I’m posting a link in this blog to another winter-over’s blog. Ben Adkinson took some amazing photos of the medevac, as well as write an informative blog about the whole situation. I’m sitting here in my room chuckling about the nickname of the flight – OOF – Operation Old Flame. I wasn’t the only person who had an ex arriving on this most recent flight.


Above is the link to his site. I highly suggest you read his posts.

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!
