random pics

a pretty sunset from the other night this is an old sign we found when we were searching for the missing statue

missing carving

I got a series of emails last week from people in New Zealand looking for a Maori carving called a "teko teko" that was done in 1967 and donated to the McMurdo Recreation department. The search was on and we actually found it in a closet. They are now in the process of trying to figure out if and how it can be returned to the family of the carver.

The town bowling alley, 2 old wooden lanes that operates with a MANUAL pinsetter. That means somebody standing at the end and collecting all the pins.
Survival shelter, there are a few of these out on popular hiking trails in case a storm comes in
