  • General details...

    Just curious about a few things if some of you have had the chance to work on the icey continent.

    I understand that the work is intense, long, etc and am down for all of that. I've wanted to go work in Antarctica for a couple years now and if I can get a job with the contractor company I have a good shot of making it happen in the 2005/2006 season.

    Silly stuff I want to know:

    I understand you are not allowed to use your issued equipment to go out camping/etc, but are there opprotunities to go out with expedition/research groups or something of the sort so you get some experience out in the iceberg wilderness?

    What does a GA generally make for a wage?

    And please, if you have any stories of your experience you'd like to share I'd love to hear them - good and bad. I want to know exactly what to expect if I happen to get the chance and go...

    Re: General details...

    Thanks for asking all the questions I want to ask. Makes this a little easier. I'm now in the process of looking over the Raytheon site (really good, btw) and am working on filling out the application, etc. Is anyone else hoping for inclusion on the 06-07 trip to Antaractica? Thanks! Nancy in West GA
