Antarctica Adventure - 2002

We saw lots of smoke along the ground on our ride and were told that these fires had been burning for twenty years with no hope of man ever putting them out. The airport at Mount Pleasant is very small so we waited outside most of the time in the warm sunshine. When weighing the luggage time came, Kay and I won hands down and also saw the wonder in the eyes of the personnel at the airport and our fellow travelers. Our combined luggage weight was only 26 pounds. Most of our fellow passengers had several suitcases weighing that much each. No one even came close to our “minimalist packing.”
