TGIF: Iceberg sails past New Zealand (2006)

New Zealanders impress me at nearly every turn. I mean, when was the last time your local news station sent out a reporter by helicopter to land on an Antarctic iceberg floating by offshore? The guys in this video are from the Otago Daily Times. One of the intrepid chaps sums it up nicely,… “all my life I wanted to go to the Antarctic, now the Antarctic’s come to me.”

  1. I just attached this to the wrong post. Let’s try again.

    When I was a teenager in Alaska, ice on the neighboring body of sea was not news worthy enough for the local stations to comment on it, but they did once send out the copters to cover the rescue of two of my friends who were busy drifting out to sea on an ice floe.
