work has picked up a little but still nothing overly exciting or complex. most of what i’m doing now is preventive maintenance. so the more things break the more fun i get to have. i may get to work on all sorts of equipment and misc things.   everything from oil furnaces to overhead lifts to changing light bulbs. so far the weather has been pretty good. we had a small amount of snow but most of it blew away. the food isn’t too bad. its better than average dining hall food.  if you have any questions about Antarctica or life down here just ask
