Hi Thule old-timer

Again, I need to do something, smiles. This time I have decided to take all the links where there is photo series, and then put them under the link called "Thule heritage hall." Then I have most of the photo series there. And we have over 31,000 photos!

 

    Welcome to my forum. This is a forum for Thule old timers; people who have actually been to one of the world's most deserted and remote outposts: Thule Air Base. Northwest Greenland...

 

You can say many things about Greenland, but one thing is for sure, that Greenland is actually green in the summertime. The summer, or the short time there is between two very cold winters, is a palette of colors, and different vegetation.

 

Everything is in a hurry to get up, become something, before the cold period, puts an end to the growth. The sun and thereby the light returns from southerly hemisphere at the 22 of February.

 

It was a day of celebration we stood there, on the highest mountain in the area, looking out over the scenarios southerly horizon, to get the first glimpse, a very short one, of the sun. It only stays for around 20 minutes then the sun was away again, a sunrise, and a sunset within the same hour. The temperature was around -43° Celsius. From that day it all happened.

 

The day inclines approximately 20 minutes every day! And forward to the 27 of April, it is more or less a normal day, and then, the long day takes over, where the ere is no dark at all.

 

Around the 23 of June the sun is right over your heads, all 24 hours, and the biggest problem we had, was to get some sleep. Fortunately there was a couple of black roller curtains in front of my two small windows there was in my room…

 

 

And as always:
Stay in touch, and carry the torch high for Thule: a rare Spot on planet earth
