29-Nov-2000 -- We had finished our task. The seismometer had been located, dug out of the snow, and serviced. There were still two hours remaining until the Twin Otter would return and fly us back to our field camp at Siple Dome. With the air temperature at –10°C (14°F) and a slight breeze blowing, walking around was one way to keep warm. I grabbed a GPS unit and set off to find 80S, 135W. I located the spot about 50 meters from the towers that support the wind generators and solar panels. This was probably the loneliest place I’ve ever visited. Other than the four of us, there probably wasn’t another living creature for 300 kilometers in any direction.
Coordinator's note: This visit is marked incomplete due to the lack of pictures without visitors or visitors' equipment in the shots. The visit was made without knowledge of the DCP.
