Hey mate, thanks for the welcome !
I'm currently working in IT, I love the job, been doing in for around 5 years, but sinse getting into a more sensitive side of Nature, I don't see being in IT (for the role I'm in and what sort of contracts I support, although they are big in the UK) something long term for me, as I don't think any real valuable experience is gained from this industry, at least not for me anyway, espcialy if I weigh it up with the experience I would gain from being involved with nature. I'm not driven by money what so ever, as long as I have anough to pay the bill I may have and enough money to live on, I suppose that's a good things really.
There is so much to learn about Antarctica, I do all my research on the Net, what I woudln't mind is an expert to give me ALL the material I'd need to read to learn practically everything about Antarctica. You're suggestion sounds really interesting, could you point me in any specific direction where to start learning ?
