After all this I went up to the APANSA building and replaced the faulty heater element. After my moon bounce article in Icy news was published I was contacted by staff in Kingston for an interview for the Aurora magazine to write another article. I have also been approached to write an article for Amateur radio magazine and also to write a story to be read out on the WIA radio broadcast so all this is going to keep me busy for a while. It's a pity I don't get paid any extra for all this work.
I have started reading Georges 1960 diary from his time at Mawson with Bill every lunch time. It is fascinating and very humorous. They sure had it a lot tougher back then but they also had a lot more fun without all the bullshit rules and political correctness that we have to contend with today. It's great reading George and you should try and finish it off and make a book out of it. If I had time I would offer to do it for you. I have already started to print some of your & Bill's photo's to compare the before and after. I find it so interesting to be walking in your foot steps.
George & Bill having a bit of fun on Horse Shoe Harbour 1960. I have to do a sea ice course and carry a radio and survival gear and turn my fire tag just to walk out to the same place.
