Back at home

By Jason BacklundWell, I finally made it back home and it feels great. It was an amazing journey to live and work in Antarctica, but there’s nothing like being home again.

I don’t have any plans to go back. If I were to travel again for work, I would pick someplace new. It was definitely an experience of a lifetime, and it would not have been possible without the help of my girlfriend who stood by by side the entire time.

I will have many memories from this trip. I was so fortunate to have this opportunity, and I encourage anybody who has the chance to take it, because it is so rewarding. It gives you a greater appreciation for life.

Well, here are some pics from my time on the ice. I hope everyone enjoyed the blogs and pictures.
