They kept me in hospital here for 4 days following an un-ruptured appendectomy.

Oh, I know!  Fuenfling's California appendectomy gave him an overnight stay and he drove himself home and resumed attending law classes.  Vierling's appendectomy in Germany shortly thereafter warranted four or five days in hospital and a week (or 2?) off work.

There are 3000 of them on and around Svalbard. Plus walruses, various seals, whales and loads of other wildlife.

Found a website with pics of a group that did jan mayen and svalbard, some awesome photos

Svalbard 2015

Jan Mayen 2012

 

I didn't doubt you would be seeing polar bears, etc. It is just such a surrealistic picture of sailing compared to what we do. We don't like wearing any clothes, for example.

 

Those photos were amazing! Thanks so much!

Sorry, my mistake...just the pacemaker! He´s just turned 79 and is always funny. And a brilliant pianist..knows 2,000 tunes off by heart (so to speak!!:P )

Who do you think Gerry and the Pacemakers were named after?:D..one of my favourite songs from my youth!! Totally off topic! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08083BNaYcA

Neither do we but I suspect we will for  large part of the trip :D Having said that, the polar bear club requires you to submerge yourself in the sea naked outside each of the bases observed by a member of the opposite sex from the base. You sign the club book and get a certificate showing your membership number, air temp, water temp etc etc. At least on Hopen, they have built a Sauna house out of driftwood at the waters edge so you can jump in right after and seeing as the sea there will be likely around 1 or two degrees C or so when we plan on getting there, I will be in like a shot :rolleyes:

That reminds me of a baby polar bear I once knew..:)

He goes  up to  his mum and says " mum, are you sure I´m a  polar bear? "

Mum: " of course you are, my dear..go away and play "

 

Baby polar bear comes back a few minutes later and asks mum: " mum, are you really 100 % sure I´m a polar bear ? "

 

Mum: " of course you are, my darling..I´m a polar bear and your dad´s a polar bear..what´s the problem ? "

 

Baby polar bear: " Cos I´m fucking freezing "...

I think in this case it is Die Käse, which having checked the profile, is not recorded, so I must have read it/made that call from previous posts. Not that I have great intuition. I was totally gobsmacked to discover that  onionfish is a boy after, I dunno, years of reading his posts...

 

edit - cross posted.

Your not telling worked. All this time I just thought you were a dude and now I don't know why. 

 

 I promise not to accuse you of having a weeny ever again!

 

Mysteries are fun even when we don't know.
