For instance… * The favorite dessert is ice cream. * The snow is often too cold for good skiing. * A common complaint is that the rooms are too hot. * Antarctica has the lowest population density of any continent, but stations are often so cramped that it’s hard to get away from people. * McMurdo has only one small store and three bars. It now also has two ATMs, and the first one dispensed over $60,000 in one day in 2001. I’m sure there’s many others… I’ll post more as I see them. g November 1, 2004 at 5:59 am #7928 IcemanMember I was there before ATM’s. Could have used one a couple of times at the ships store and at the Scott Base store. November 1, 2004 at 6:13 am #7929 SciencetechKeymaster @Iceman wrote: I was there before ATM’s.

There’s no place to park! Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) The forum ‘Life on the Ice’ is closed to new topics and replies.
