There are 29 expeditioners at Casey who have all made the choice to spend a winter in Antarctica. We are lucky enough to experience this place as very few ever do: cold, dark and about as isolated as it’s possible to get on this planet.
But while we get to have this extraordinary adventure, we leave behind a life in Australia and the people that matter to us. This is a chance for all of us here at Casey Station to say thank you to those amazing people that are caring for our families, our homes and supporting us from afar. If we were able to say thank you for all the things you do for us, you might hear us say…
Thanks for looking after our pets
Thanks for sending us pictures of your wedding day we missed
Thanks for renovating the house so it’s looks great when we get back
Thanks for looking after our children and making sure Dad’s not forgotten about
Thanks for being there and being so supportive when we’ve lost someone close
Thanks for making it easy to keep a long distance relationship going
Thanks for mowing the lawn and checking on the house
Thanks for opening our mail
Thanks for looking after the car
Thanks for always answering the phone when we call
So this is dedicated to all of you, our family and friends. Thank you for everything you do!
Here’s a few pictures of home and some of the amazing people in our lives.
