Don't have time to post much right now, but things have been going well. We've made it to the slow(ish) week or so of the year when we've got the Willy Field stuff ready for the move, but the ATO people aren't quite ready to move off the Ice Runway. All the large projects that need to be done for now are done, so we're in the bit of time that was scheduled for playing catchup in case things didn't go as smoothly as they have so far. I've been working on various smallish projects - finished my bamboo flag puller (haven't tested it yet, but will post results when they're available,) did some fuel delivery stuff on the Fule Mule and Scharen, helped out with some cleanup things, and that's about it! Have today off, so I slept in late, had a nice long brunch, then helped the recreation people with tuning up our station bicycles in preperation for the bike race that'll be run in a week or two. Had a good time doing that, especially the test ride part :). Also got around to reorganizing some of my pictures and stuff onto CDs and ran across a picture of Scharen in action! In addition to Scharen, you can see Mt. Erebus (our local active volcano) pretty well in this picture. It's hard to get the scale of things in this picture, but the tires are about 5 feet in diameter for perspective:
