We had a lot of delays and spent a few hours at the airport waiting for the plane to be fixed, which gave the weather at South Pole just enough time to warm up enough for us to land and me plenty of time to wander the airfield taking photos.
The flight to Pole was only about 3 hours on the LC130. I was greeted with a biting breeze and old friends and I'm really happy to be here. Something I wasn't sure I'd be able to say...
