The Need for Speed

I have now passed all my classes except snowmobile training which starts in two hours.

My Address On The Ice

Tim Mayer, SOPP
McMurdo Station
PSC 469, Box 700
APO AP, 96599-1035

Remembering to use SOPP instead of SRC or RPSC on the name line will also speed things up by a couple days. They put boxes that they can't match up aside and work on them last. Packages can take a few weeks to get to me, so plan ahead.

Me? The organized one?

It is interesting that no one wants to let anyone know anything about themselves or their life off the ice. It's like it doesn't exist.

I get along with everyone fine except once in a while someone will get excited about a piece of equipment being broke and think everyone else is being lazy.


I should be able to start traveling after flight checks are complete. We should be able to finish that today or tomorrow. We have been working around the clock since Monday to get all of the equipment approved for use with the C130s. I've been shuttling everyone around in the shop van. Makes for a long day. I'll let you know when I'm going to leave for the first helicopter trip.

Happy Camper School Graduation

Well, I passed the school. I can officially leave the station to go work on my equipment. I have been getting acquainted with the equipment on station and all the things I need to know before I go out into the field.

The Map Is Coming

I have found a way to upload the interactive web for the map. The only problem is that there is too much information along with the map, so Tanya will work diligently to parse out all of the un-needed information. When Tanya completes doing all the things I should have done before I sent the files, she should post it along with a brief discription on how to use the map. Basicly you just put the cursor over a building and a discription pops up. Clicking on it will show you a picture and offer a floor plan if available.

Mom learning to blog

I don't get this whole thing its weird. No don't write me...don't write that. stop that! (head shakes) Ha, ha, ha...stop! David: this is fun....Mom: no its not, I'm supposed to say something intelligent, right?

David: Grandma you want to say anything. Grandma: About what?....He had curly red hair when he was born. Mom: No that's for the other part.

I don't get blogging. Hhhhaa! (more head shaking)

David: Thats awsome. Mom: I'm gonna pee my pants....dont say that....stop it!...He's writing everything we say.

To boldly go where no man (without a parka anyway) has gone before. To explore new icefields, seeking vistas of beautiful horizons tuxedoed penguins. To perform daring feats of electrical engineering in fascinating and sometimes colorless environs, (except some nights when the sky is on fire). To Live.
