Freshies are here

well today is the the 2nd flight into McMurdo. We got 134 in on the first flight and lost 30 so we went up in population. on todays flight we have another 134 people and we lose 24 so we are increasing our population a lot. We call it the invasion of the ORANGE people. since we are ghostly white after no sun for 6 months and everyone coming in has been playing in the sun all summer right before coming in. We also got in our first fresh fruit in 6 months. wow the wonders of fresh bananas and oranges. we will get fresh eggs and fruits and veggies on the 3rd flight. I can't wait. they could have kept all the people but send the food...lol. By the time the flights are done we will have about 500 people on station. about 1/2 of the summer population. it will take some getting used too.but it should be all good. We use the term freshies to mean new food and new people but we really like the fresh food. think how you would deal with not having the food you like for about 6 months. When I leave here I will get me a juicy steak (we ran out about 5 months ago) and some fresh fruits and veggies. I only have about 2 months till I will be out of here and heading to New Zealand for a while. well have to get back to work. laters Tim
