I believe you are right, although I love hearing about the South Pole. I am particularly fond of the antics such as the round the world race and the 300 degree club as well as to be able to witness the week long sunrise and sunset once a year (if that was correct).
I have managed to collect far too many Antarctic shirts etc and am very proud of my round the world race and general South Pole t-shirts. Speaking of clothing, I once remember seeing some folk from McMurdo, when I was in New Zealand, wearing caps with a polar bear on an ice floe, crossed out as in a no smoking sign. That always made me smile considering the amount of times I've been asked about seeing polar bears.
You were also fortunate with the sun dogs etc!
