Location

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

Participants

  • Katie Hess - USA
  • Dale Mole - USA 

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



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.

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.... :)"
