Thanks for your reply and for giving the link. Very interesting to read.
Now that's some Antarctican experience to stay in a tent for three months including stretches of up to three weeks "laid up" during bad weather.
I can imagine that a mp3 player can be a very important tool for killing some time during these moments. It must be very pleasing to listen to your own private music collection so far from home.
I hope to get lucky indeed by finding someone in Antarctica who likes to talk a bit more about this subject. Who knows
