Cliff’s incredible journey to Mawson
What a journey it’s been for me this summer. So much of the continent covered to get to Mawson for winter.
It started with me flying into McMurdo and spending a few days getting reacquainted with some of the sights and facilities they have around there. Included in this was a quick visit to Scott Base.
Next, an uncomfortable but memorable flight on a Hercules soon saw me at Casey, where a few weeks was spent working on the ‘West Wing'.
I made it to Davis in time for Christmas celebrations and, on Boxing Day, landed on the sea ice at Mawson. I was privileged to have had Bob, Mike and Perry put up with my whinging and moaning about the poor cabin service all the way from Casey to Mawson. (Gonna miss you guys.) But they showed me some amazing sights along the way.
I’m so very lucky and my season is only just beginning. It can only get better. Many thanks to everyone who’s made this possible. Woohoo!
