well here is it my current place of work, Australian Antarctic Division Head office in Kingston Tasmania. Work here is very different to any workplace that i have ever worked in. Everyone from the Director down are just sooo nice, helpful and smiling its hard to believe its a workplace. It was at this point i remembered why i enjoyed myself so much last season and why this and in fact any season anyone would enjoy it.
these sections of training. But like any workplace i needed to find stuff to do. So i organized to help out in the kitting store where my good old mate Mick works when he isn't talking.........but i helped him where where i could which mainly involved restocking the shelves for the incoming expeditionars.
Another task me and Cliffy had to do was drive the Divisions truck to the other side of Hobart and pick up some stainless steal for Cliff to make something think Cliff though he was going to die on the way down but all good just touchy brakes..............Like the number plates????
The first weekend after arriving here in Hobart we had a meeting of the 2009-10 Wilkins Infrastructure Crew with Rodney Cliff and myself driving the 2 1/2 hours to Bicheno to visit our friend Craig.
Today me and Cliffy went out on the Peppermint Bay Cruise.................while the weather was shitty it was very nice none the less.
On our return the weather cleared up and turned into a beautiful day..............pity it wasn't like that all day!!!
Now some of you might have heard as to whats happening down south at the moment if not take a look at this
Part of being an Antarctic Expeditionar means we are one family and if one of our brothers are hurt we are there to help. My heart goes out to those lost and their families we and all those nations that are in a position that can help in reuniting the families with them will i am sure.
With Australia helping the French this has and will make some changed to our program, what exactly that is going to entail time will tell but until then "hurry up and wait!"
Hope everyone is well
P.S...............For my French brothers i feel your loss
Death is not the greatest loss in life.
The greatest loss is what dies within us while we live.
