Thanks Alan, for your perspective on the situation. This forum is already opening my eyes to the broad range of ideas and approaches to the great white wilderness.
As a Yank, maybe I can apply on some affirmative action basis.
My intercultural efforts in NYC, the Caribbean and South America, have been towards bridging the gap between Latino and Anglo-American culture. Maybe there could be some opportunities for intercultural events on the peninsula?
I see Antarctica as the last frontier, well maybe third to last, seeing as space travel and deep sea living have yet to be conquered. Perhaps with the development of new technologies, nanotech clothing, insulating and new construction materials, the obstacle of extreme cold may become manageable. Here's to the adventure that each of us are seeking, each in their own way!
