Anyone in the Wenatchee area coming over to Spokane anytime in the next couple of weeks?  Skillet has found some boots in the size he needs at an Army/Navy Store, but they won't ship.  They have my size as well.  So if anyone could help out, stop by and get the boots and bring them to this area, I will ship them for him.  Let me know if you are coming this way from there and are interested in helping out.  Or if you are in that area and wouldn't mind shipping them to Skillet.  He will of course cover the shipping costs.  Thanks!!

Are these the ones also called Donald Ducks?

Mickey Mouse boots I think.

I wore the white ones for 4 months at South Pole.  One pair of medium weight wool or polypropylene socks, will keep your feet warm at any temperature experienced in most of North America (I was there in summer, so only experienced down to -56F ambient/-129F windchill - but the winter overs said they were fine down to -80s ambient).
   

How did you get down there Navy?
I worked for the National Science Foundation's support contractor - mostly grunt labor.  Commercial airlines to Christchurch NZ, USAF C141 to McMurdo Station on the coast, and C130 ski plane to south pole.  Return travel to McMurdo and Christchurch by C130s operated by NY ANG.  McMurdo is operated by the Navy, South Pole by commercial contractor.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

That is very cool, one place I would love to visit once.

What was it like landing in the 141 on ice?
I worked with a guy who wintered over once, lots of cool stories.👍
