    There's a very strong chance that I may land a contract in antractica for the next six months to a year. I was wondering if anyone here's been?

    I can't say I've ever been THAT far... But I have lived in some colder climates. I have a friend living in Anchorage right now who can back me up on these very general tips.

    -Be prepared to spend a lot of time indoors.
    -Be comfortable with sleeping in clothes.
    -Do everything you can to maintain a healthy immune system.
    -Prepare to absolutely love, and hate all gloves, ever, all at the same time.

    I heard the weather's great. Uninhabitably frigid winters and uninhabitably frigid summers. You gonna be anywhere near the beach?

    What's your job going to be? I'm assuming you are a scientist of some sort

    Make sure you have gay sex while on Antarctica...It may be a first. If no one hot is on your team, take someone with you, film it, and make money icon_smile.gif

    Would love to visit Antarctica one day! Has to be one of the most unique places on this planet.

    If you're looking to visit on holiday-
    there are excursions that leave Buenos Aires but they'll run you... 10K.
    And a three week trek through arguably the most violent seas on the planet.

    I've stayed on Palmer Land, very beautiful, very cold, went from the Falklands to Brazil's station on King George Island called Camandante Ferraz, crossed Larsen Ice Shelf and made it past the Sweeney Mountains to the Zumberge Coast and onto Patriot Hill where I was lucky enough to stay for six months icon_smile.gif beautiful land beautiful specimen

    We visited the peninsula a couple years ago on a 10 day expedition, sailed out of Ushuaia. It was December so the summer in Antarctica, it sounds strange but even though the temperatures were around 32F at the highest, it was pretty warm in the sun and we lucked out with most of our days being cloud free. If you get a chance to go you should, we'd go back in a heart beat.
    Cheers!
