South Pole Arrival

Well, after nearly 2 days at McMurdo, we have arrived at Pole. We were forced to fly in on a DC-3 Basler, which took nearly 5 hours and no cabin pressurization, but all went well flying through the Antarctic mountains! Arrival temp was around -58/-87F wind-chill. Our current ‘elevation’ is 11,919 ft. While our physical elevation is 9310 ft., the way it feels changes due to the pressure.

Our internet is spotty, and am not able to up load the pics today, but hope I will be able too shortly!
