ex machina


the postcard project: Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, Antartica.



ooof. i've behind again on the i the postcard project. not only do i not even have all the postcards uploaded from when odin was in the hospital, but we're still getting cards from all over the world.

today i went to the postoffice and picked up a new batch of cards from all sorts of exciting locations including the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station which is in anarctica and; according to wikipedia, that means the odin has received a postcard from the, "...southernmost continually-inhabited place on the planet". whooohooo!

cari corrigan is there collecting meteorites and doing some extreme skidoo training and says that she has roped all her teammates into checking up on odin.

since we've promised to try and visit every place from which we receive a postcard, i'm wondering if maybe we should contact national geographic to see if they'll sponsor us to travel all over the world :-)

i don't know if cari is back or if she's still there. either way, i hope she's having/had a blast and thanks so much for thinking of odin while you were on your own exciting adventure.

She's probably still there. I know several people who have spent a season down there. Its summer in the southern hemisphere right now & the big season for doing studies down there is Oct-Feb.

Take care,

Great postcard- my class(aged 4/5/6 years) are starting a topic on explorers and we are going to look at Antartica- can anyone send us a post card/photo of Antartica?

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
