Well it is hard to believe Col and I are going to Antarctica…mess everywhere in the house trying to tick of all the mandatory items and check it twice. Layers and layers of clothing only hope the body adjusts to the cold….not to mention the sea sickness on the ship on the way over.
But something that will keep me strong will be the fact that my Dad was in Antarctica 50 years ago in December this year. He spent 3 months at Wilkes Station while he was in the RAAF… they were doing all the mapping of Antarctica.
Some priceless pictures of my Dad in 1962 in Antarctica:
