First post nails it again. Don't participate at all for two years then just use the membership when you want something. I can understand not being an occassional poster like myself but no post in two years?

I understand that line of thought, there are other sites that I am more active on and may feel the same way towards someone who hasn't "paid his dues". Thank you to anybody that wants to help out. And anybody who doesn't think it is appropriate, I get it.

A good portion of us are out of work, but we know how to turn off the Caps Lock.


Going to vote now.

Are they flying her to Antarctica or going via boat? If the latter, I hope your daughter has tons of motion sickness meds. A co-worker of mine took a boat to Antarctica (McMurdo research station) and he said everybody, even those of the stoutest of stomach, was having trouble with the large waves down there. He may have been on a smaller boat but it's something you may want to prepare your daughter against.

Now I feel guilty and obligated to not only vote for your daughter, but to keep this thread alive.... dang.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 9:58:37 AM EST
Voted, First post or not. That will be a trip of a lifetime for her..Good Luck!

And in before some classless wonder asks for pics.

That place is almost entirely devoid of all human life, cold, covered in glaciers, and full of penguins.

I don't know that I would ever come back.

I have always wanted to hunt a penguin. Just didn't have the time when I passed through New York to reach Niagara Falls a couple years ago.

Beat me to it. Although the similarity of titles and situation made me think this was a troll thread.

The whole time I was in the Navy, I always wanted to get stationed down there.

I think that would be the assignment of a lifetime.

Good luck to her, I hope she makes it.

It is a flight to Argentina first. Then 13 days on an icebreaker. Copy, will bring plenty of motion sickness pills.

They need a much larger boat. There are many, many teenage daughters that need to be sent to Antarctica.

This is NOT how to introduce yourselves folks!!!

BTW, I think that the Sea Shepheards are looking for more crewmembers. May be she should look there
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 10:40:08 AM EST
Good luck to her.

We have some aircraft over there under contract. The guys are heading back in Sept., I think.

Got some cool pics of penguins around the aircraft at work and will see if they are still there and post later this week.

Sadly, you picked the wrong service for that.

www.gocoastguard.com


On the plus side, you didn't miss anything. There's nothing down there but ice, nerds, fish and Japanese whaling ships.

Hope she wins this contest mr.-i-never-posted-before-i-wanted-something.

It's always funny to see someone ask a question then ignore the answer when they do not like it.

I don't know if I'd call a post per day count of approximately 16 "occasional."

It would nice to be 1st. But they pick one out of the top 5. So I see moving into 2nd as something not that far away. And that would put us in a strong position.
