Peter I Island Visit: 2009-12
2010-01-14 - I am so impressed that 22 people on MTP have been to Peter I. When we landed, little more than half of 100 people made it to the island before the changing ice conditions made it impossible. Those few on the island had a hard time making it back to the ship. We were going to use the helicopters to take the remainder but an incoming storm prevented that from happening. As such, only approximately 55 people were able to land on the island and even with that, the total is less than 1000 people. Actually, it's barely over 900 people.

I consider myself fortunate to be among these others people who have been there. Given how remote it is (5 sea days to get there). And how hard to get there (lots of both sea ice and pack ice). And once there, how nearly impossible it is to actually set foot on land. It is the hardest place to get to, that I've ever been to.
