Here it is, mounted on... well, let's see. If you look closely you'll see the seawater pumphouse in the background.

Okay, it is on the utilidor near the sauna, as you can see here with the biolab and aquarium in the background (JL).

where it is
The main identifying sign at the top. Extra room was left at the
bottom for future additions.

Signposts such as this were popular at Pole and other inland stations in the older days, but this is the first time one appeared at Palmer Station. The folks who created the various signs and the signpost:

  • Andrew V. Williams - South Pole, Palmer Station, Winter 2010
  • Chris Seliga - general carpentry
  • Perri Barbour - Denver
  • Bede McCormick - Punta Arenas
  • Dave Barud - McMurdo
  • Lisa Trotter - Stonington
The information and photos all came from 2010 winter manager Lisa Trotter, except for the one from Jenna Luek (JL). Thanks!
