 WEDDING BELLS

 SHIPBOARD ASSIGNMENTS
image012.jpg
On November 19, 2011, Jill Steele Mayer and I were married at the Los Angeles Adventurers’ Club. This was the first ever marriage at this venerable organization. About fifty Club members, friends and Jill’s family members attended on this rainy Saturday afternoon in downtown Los Angeles.

The ceremony was neary flawless, and several members and guests told me afterward that it was the "best" wedding ceremony they had ever witnessed.

South Pole Panorama
Spend a year with me at the Geographic South Pole. I was in charge of National Science Foundation atmospheric science projects at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station for thirteen months between 1981 and 1982. Watch a slideshow covering the entire stay, and click here for a photo gallery from the South Pole as it was back then. The South Polar Plateau is endlessly flat and empty. We made a t-shirt that read: "Ski the South Pole...3 inches of powder and 10,000 feet of base." This photo shows that endlessness, with the actual Pole inside the circle of flags.
