Soon I'll be standing at the intersection of 80 degrees West and 80 degrees South.Its a place I know well, a point seemingly on the edge of the planet, or close to it. Its name is Hercules Inlet and it is found on the very rim of Antarctica. Moments before I'll have shaken hands with my pilot and nervously watched as he teased his plane back into the sky. His name is Robert, his will be the last face Ill see for nearly two months.
