South Pole Ice Tunnel

In a few days it will be the 100th anniversity of Amundsen of Norway reaching the South Pole for the first time. A lot of "tourists" are showing up at the pole for the occasion including the King of Norway. This is not him but one of my bosses Geordan McQuiston. He is seen here in the ice tunnels below the pole holding a thermometer which reads 65 degrees below 0. This is where all the water and sewage lines run and is forty feet below the surface. Geordan and a crew of three or four carpenters went there recently to put up a couple of RAC tents to serve as a gift shop/store and information center. If ya got tourists, ya gotta have a store.
