In isolation

I hate to admit it, but this account of living and working in Antarctica makes it sound pretty appealing to me. At least for one year, maybe. It sounds like quite the experience.

I know a guy who spent a year there and he called it a mixed bag. Life changing and magnificent, but not all for the good. He said he wouldn't do it again; he was uncomfortable, either physically or mentally, for the entire time.

Were I ever to do it (not likely, just because I doubt I'll ever have the opportunity), I imagine I wouldn't want or be able to do it more than once.
