[edit] Location

933 m North (hehe) of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station

[edit] Participants

  • Katie Hess - USA
  • Dale Mole - USA 

  • Joselyn Fenstermacher - USA
  • Robert Schwarz - Germany
  • Sven Lidström - Sweden



[edit] Plans

Carl-Johan has called the OPP and emailed Scott Borg at the NSF. Hopefully he will forward it to someone adventurous at the Station.

[edit] Expedition

Because of spotty links to the Pole Carl-Johan will give translated bits from emails with the 5 honorary penguins.

Sven Lidström: "I got your request forwarded to me, probably because they saw it came from Sweden.

Anyway, today at UTC 02:30" Editorial note: we had assumed that they used UTC as a TZ and that is consistent with the longitude of -5 "we where out at S 89°59.496 W 5°51.677
 alt -89.991607, -5.861282


We were in total 5 people:

  • Katie Hess -USA
  • Dale Mole - USA 

  • Joselyn Fenstermacher - USA
  • Robert Schwarz - Germany
  • Sven Lidström - Sweden

Attached you have proof, (I'm the one without skiing goggles in a blue and yellow toque).

For your information, the GPS acts a bit strange down here just because we are so close to the pole, it has a hard time to keep up with the longitude changes. But we walked all over the place to make sure we were at the right spot. Besides that, the cold messes a bit with the electronics as well.

Looking forward to the Champagne" Yes, I did promise some Champagne and it will be honored!

Jocelyn Fenstermacher: "And I just thought we were going for a fine walk out the front yard.... :)"
