Seren's Journey South

From Oct. 2007 to April 2008, I worked as the systems administrator at Palmer station, on the Antarctic Peninsula.

Palmer is the smallest of the three US-operated research stations on the continent, averaging around 32 people that season. It's also the northern-most and most surrounded by water (it's on Anverse Island) which means it has the most wildlife. I kept a blog (though I was not very good at regularly writing) and took lots of pictures, so come on in.
