Description

Have you ever wondered what is is like to live and work at McMurdo station Antarctica?
Well wonder no more.
Hi, My name is Rob and I am an electrician and I get to see and do stuff most others don't get an opportunity to do.
Join me as I set up airfield lighting, take a snowmobile ride to the base of a volcano, or a helicopter ride to a remote island station.
It is not always glamorous here, but I love working here. So go ahead and subscribe and get to me and the most inhospitable place on the planet.

😂😂😂😂😂 - best episode yet. Loved the expression of the Flat Earth frustrations. I struggle with the same questions as to how can anyone truly believe it.

I'm really enjoying this! The background story helps and allows you to connect with him. It's always been a dream for me to live someplace very remote and I love Antartica or places like Greenland or Svarlbard. I recommend it if you like IRL first person stories & if you wonder what it's like to work & live in a remote place. Great Job!
