Who decides what to bring to antartica? Its nobodys land, is it?
"There are seven sovereign states who have made eight territorial claims in Antarctica: Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom. These countries have tended to place their Antarctic scientific observation and study facilities within their respective claimed territories; however, a number of such facilities are located outside of the area claimed by their respective countries of operation, and countries without claims such as India, Russia and the United States have constructed research facilities within the areas claimed by other countries."
If you have certain skills that are needed to get a position on one of these nations' (usually annual) scientific trips then I would highly recommend it. You do have to have your appendix removed though. I am sure you would have time to get the quad in the air.
