Now and then I announce "I know you're listening to empty rooms". If I'm wrong then no one knows, and if I'm right, Maybe I just freaked the hell out of some secret organization.

And to answer your questions Legato there are a few thousand people who come through here per year and approximately 250,000 people have been recorded as having set foot on the continent, I realize the chance was slim but thought Id ask.
Hmm Fun huh, well the bowling alley caved in but there are a few Gym's, library, couple of bars, Bouldering cave etc... There are also rec trips to variuos areas of interest and plenty of survival courses which can be quite enjoyable. We arrange softball games and Rugby games against the Kiwis there are also plenty of hiking trails.

Need a Chef? I've always wanted to go to Antarctica.
We put our glass to the sky and lift up. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya. So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya...

OK I'm asking .... what the heck is the drinking age down there.
Posted 14 October 2009 - 07:08 PM
And do you guys get good liquor imported down there from all over the world, or do you only get like bud light and american crap beers? I'd love some fresh vodka or cognac chilled til it is icy as can be. XD

They do hire chefs and every other position you can think of needed to run a small town. For employment www.usap.gov and select employment opportunities from the column on the left.
Drinking age is 18 and they have a decent selection of beers from around the world but nothing to exoctic and nothing on tap. The liquor is pretty standard stuff and drinks are $3-$4 with a six pack selling in the store for $3-$5 and ciggarettes for $3-$4 depending on thre brand.
The USAP issues a pretty good assortment of clothing from poly pro's to heavy down parkas as well as everything in between. The average temp for the Austral Summer (Oct-Feb) is -40* to +40* with random occurences of much lower temps. Three weeks ago it dropped to -106*.
If you guys are on Facebook send an invite to "Edward Gawrys III" with a note that says specops I have quite a few pics on there you may all be interested in.

Looks nice though
So if a pilot scratches his multi million dollar F22, does that raise his auto insurance rates?? -Legato
