Welcome to Winterover.com!

Sorry about letting this site go past-due on an update! bummer

The reunion of the South Pole winterover 1993-1994 crew finally happened during the weekend of August 21-22 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. You can read about it on the Reunion page. I've also updated the Gallery and added some photos taken during the gathering.

As only a small portion of our crew was able to make it to the reunion, everyone agreed that another gathering in the future would be the thing to do. I, as well as the others, would very much like to thank Janet, our reunion organizer and gracious hostess, for putting this all together and doing the legwork to make sure that we had a nice place to stay. I had a great time! It was so nice to see the familiar faces...even after ten years everyone still looked the same, minus the beards on the guys! ;o) Of course, we did a lot of reminiscing and recalling of some highlights of our season on the ice. Trying to remember names and dates was a challenge for some of us, and simple for others. I'm pretty sure most of us felt like ten years had not passed, like it was only yesterday that we were sitting in the galley having our usual late-night discussions. That was what the winterover experience was all about, in my opinion. Developing that sense of comradery, or family-like familiarization. We worked together through thick and thin, not always like a well-oiled machine mind you, but more like a semi-disfunctional extended family. heh, not quite Brady Bunch, more like the Osbournes.

Anyhoo, thanks to everyone for making it happen. Here's hoping for an even bigger turnout the next time we get together. :o)
