Retrieve TB from Antarctica

Recommended Posts

Help retrieve a travel bug from near Scott Base/McMurdo Station, Antarctica.

 

A friend took one of my TBs to visit Antarctica last December. By mistake, somebody else placed the bug in what he thought was a cache, but isn't. Near as I can tell, the TB has spent the Southern Hemisphere winter under a rock and plenty of snow. Would any cachers visiting Antarctica this season like to retrieve this TB for me? The co-ords are: S77 50.994 -- E166 46.006

 

Cheers,

I'm trying to figure out the best forum for this posting.

 

Maybe 'All Nations'.

 

If anyone one knows of someone heading south, let'em know.

WOW, I am not headed down there, but I would love to hear the story about how it got there and how it got retrived. You should find that TB and frame it with the story below. :)

Yes, it is Rucklidgeite No. 2. Here it is hanging off the sign at New Zealand's Scott Base, which is just a few miles the American base at McMurdo. And here's where it was left. There's something in the background of the second photo. Any ideas what it might would be appreciated.

The second picture looks like it is a Geodetic Benchmark (a surveyor's disc). They are used in the US to mark accurate positions along the landscape for surveying.

Hi,

Is anybody traveling to McMurdo Station/Scott Base, Antarctica this season? One of my TBs was left there a few years ago and I'd love to get it back. It's not in a cache, but the lat and long are known. See photo.

All assistance appreciated.

Reading the logs, I would say "friend?" and "responsible person?"!?!? :mad:

 

I would consider a change of terminology. ;)

 

Apparently they do not "know the activity" as well as what they informed you!

You have 3 years (more or less) to get this TB retrieved. Come December 2012, that will be the North Pole and people will be confused.
