    Here are a few pictures of the South Pole Right now it's -92 below been dark here since middle of May. The sun should be comming up around the 25 of Aug. The last plain left here Feb 8 and won'r return till around Nov 1st. There are 60 people staying over for winter and in the summer it will grow to around 250 people.
    Enjoy the pic.

    Thanks for the pictures Jack!

    It looks a little like where I was, for 2 months about 53 years ago.
    Only thing, I was at the other end of the world. :big_smile:
