Intro

Halley is located on the
edge of the Weddell Sea

This is the story of my time working as a Data Manager and VLF Engineer for the British Antarctic Survey at Halley Research Station (7535' S, 2639' W) - the UK's most isolated outpost. I left the UK in Noveber 2005, completed two winter seasons in Antarctica, and returned to the UK via South Africa in March 2008. I missed trees and hills but enjoyed skiing, kiting, people and the aurora. Sometimes I even did some science.
