Winter is here...or The rest are gone

So it has been a very long time since I have posted, but I figured I would get going again now that I have had an evening off.

Since I last blogged we have had sort of going away party, finished handing off information to the witer crew and begun winterizing the telescope!

The biggest event in the last few days was seeing everyone off that isnt staying for the winter. The last plane in or out for 8 months came to pick up the rest of the crew on Sunay. Station population went from 250 three weeks ago to 120 a week ago to its final winter number of 54.

Here are some pictures of the last plane leaving.

My name is Bob Bussey. I was close friends with your folks when they lived in Austin, TX. In fact, your dad was the best man at my wedding back in 1977. After I graduated from college, and your dad graduated, we went our separate ways. I ended up in Louisiana, while you folks ended up in Wisconsin.
I think we meet several years ago while I was in the Wisconsin/Illinois area.
Your mom gave me the address to your blog site. Your work is very interesting. I hope the winter months will go quickly for you. Keep posting once in awhile.
