This is a complete listing of all the slides I have scanned in from my
trip. These are copyright by the Boy Scouts of America, 1993. These have
been cropped, resized, and converted to JPEGs as the originals were scanned
at roughly 1600x1000 resolution as 24-bit uncompressed TIFFs. If you want
to see better detail in a shot or the original, contact me.
- 01-02.jpg A Shot of me on the flight to McMurdo
from New Zealand.
- 01-20.jpg The view out my window in the Hotel
California in McMurdo. The large field to the lower left is the helo pad.
- 03-06.jpg A shot of Brooks Montgomery who is one
of the coolest people and best climbers I have ever met.
- 03-16.jpg A shot of Snow School with Mt. Erebus
in the background.
- 04-03.jpg Me in front of our camp at Snow School
- 05-04.jpg A shot of Red ROVer from the rear.
Red ROVer was a telepresent remotely operated vehicle we used at Lake Hoare
to "virtually" swim around in the lake under a layer of ice 10 feet thick.
- 07-17.jpg Dale and an unidentified helo guy are
getting stuff off one of the Hueys at Lake Hoare.
- 08-08.jpg The inside of the Jamesway at Lake
Hoare. Notice the Preway to the left (the boxy thing) that is used to heat
- 08-10.jpg Picture of Dale, Scott, Bob w/ VE-25.
We used the VE-25's for sleeping in and storing personal gear.
- 11-15.jpg Picture of helo dropping a sling load
out in the middle of the lake. Notice the "texture" of the ice surface.
Those formations are around a foot high and can be a pain to move heavy
- 13-09.jpg Dale slays the goliath (really he's
just hooking a sling load to the underside).
- 13-16.jpg Power for the Lake Hoare camp was
supplied by these monstrous solar cell arrays built at NASA Lewis. They
were hooked to 10 car batteries and, along with a power converter, supplied
120V current for the radio and computers. I'm actually in this picture.
From left to right the people are Scott, Dale, Carol, Me, and Bob.
- 13-16.jpg Don Barch, snowman extraordinaire.
- 15-11.jpg Very good overview of the process of
melting holes. Notice the steam generator at the right which is used to
heat propylene glycol. The glycol is passed through hoses to a disk made of
copper tubing that melts through the ice. Nice shot of Canada glacier
(which forms the dam that creates the lake) in the background.
- 16-18.jpg Dale about to go swimming. Bob and
Scott are helping suit him up before he goes diving. Notice the red safety
line attached to him so he can find his way to the surface (finding a hole
that is ten feet long and only 4 or 5 feet wide can be next to impossible
under the ice). The line also contains a communications link threaded down
- 18-03.jpg A shot of me standing in one of the
holes being melted into the ice. Notice the copper tubing disk at the
bottom of the hole. The sump pump is to the right. We used the ladder to
climb down into the hole to scoop out sand layers. The copper tubing disk
is attached to 4 ropes that are used to pull it out.
- 18-06.jpg Group picture of all of us at Lake
Hoare. From left to right they are: John Rummel (who only came out for a
day or two), Carol Stoker, Me (Toby Ovod-Everett), Bob Wharton, Don Barch, and
18-06_zoom.jpg A zoom on the group picture
- 19-08.jpg Me with a desicated crab eater seal.
- 19-10.jpg Me walking past the nose of the Suess
- 20-03.jpg A picture of me with Red ROVer. In my
hands is this dohickey I made to allow the divers to take ambient light
measurements both horizontally and vertically while under the lake. Behind
me is the video camera I used to film the freezing patterns on the lake
surface (I was fascinated by the way leaders would shoot out along the
surface, to be followed by filling in later). In the far background is the
- 20-05.jpg Lake Hoare camp from out on the lake.
Canada Glacier is to the right. Notice, again, the interesting ice
formations. From the left, the buildings are: the outhouse (we bagged all
waste), the Jamesway, the generator shack (used to house the batteries for
the solar cells), and the laboratory.
- 20-06.jpg Me in the VE-25 I slept in at Lake
- 22-06.jpg A picture of Lake Fryxell camp with
the PI, Brian Howes, in the foreground.
- 22-10.jpg Picture of me suited up and downed plane
- 22-14.jpg Me with candles
- 22-14.jpg Transferring helium
- 26-02.jpg Evil shot of me
- 26-16.jpg Shot of the apparatus
- 28-04.jpg Hanging from the bottom side of the world
- 29-13.jpg Me, BSA uniform, ceremonial south pole
- 30-19.jpg Smiling at geographic south pole
- 31-09.jpg Inside of the dome
- 35-13.jpg ?? and ?? w/ drill
- 36-20.jpg Me turning ice drill
- 37-20.jpg Mirror sunglasses shot
- 38-11.jpg The snowpit
- 42-18.jpg A remote site on Taylor Dome
- 45-08.jpg Me riding the (no-longer) bucking Nansen sled
- 45-15.jpg The camp on the nameless knoll
- 47-07.jpg Lashley North
- 50-05.jpg Using snowmachines to get stuff on the LC-130
- 53-10.jpg IceStock 93
- 56-12.jpg Penguins glancing to the left
- 58-03.jpg Lots and lots of penguins
- 58-17.jpg Using the passing lane
- 58-20.jpg Me with penguins
- 64-17.jpg A cruise to nowhere
- 75-01.jpg Picture of the saline gradient radar rig
- 78-17.jpg Leaving MacTown for the last time
- 79-08.jpg Good overview of MacTown
