Welcome to all Old Antarctic Explorers
OAE's and Old Antarcticans

Old Antarctic Explorer - OAE. Someone who's been around in Antarctica for a while, several summers, or at least a Winter, the more the better. Wintering at the south polar station confers automatic OAE status. - American

Some purists maintain that it should only apply to those who have wintered on such an Antarctic base - no distinction is drawn here and all are welcome.
