4711! We meet again! LOL! And what is it with people who think that a NAZI U-BOAT....could EVER....make it to ANTARCTICA? The number of icebergs
as well as the seas as I would think they left by way of Cape Horn....NO WAY!
The GROTTON CONN. SUB BASE AND YARD OF ELECTRIC BOAT....has designed the finest and most durable hightech....LOW DEPTH...subs in existance and I have
a childhood neighbor who works for them. He...like I....love to Cross Country Ski....and where we grew up as kids....there are old trails that go up
small MASS. sized mountains....and it is beautiful as well as an extremely good workout.
One day while we were doing this together....we got to the top of one of these small mountains and overlooked a VERY LARGE SAC base.....this is the
same one that I saw the orbs fly over when I was a kid....as we were home for the Holidays and we had fresh powder snow. I told him the story about
how I was hired by the USN to play a gig for SUBMARINERS....basicly kids who were stuck underwater on a BOOMER....ie...OHIO CLASS TRIDENT SUB.....for
months at a time without ever surfacing.....this was the COLD WAR...and before they let these kids go out an RIP UP A TOWN....USN would hire a
band...US...to play the NCO CLUB...it was a very discounted rate!
As my friend and I talked about the OHIO CLASS BOOMERS....we talked about hitting a whale or an iceberg and some other things that seam to be going
way too fast under water. He said...hitting a whale....they would feel it...but whales tend to stay away....he said...the ocean areas around
Australia and other major large Islands in that area....the subs were sometimes attacked by GIANT SQUID! I thought he was kidding me...like in
20,000 leages Under the Sea...but he said...no....the animal can do little to harm the SUB....but if it's tenticles get chopped up by the subs
screw...or Prop....it can cause a blade to bend ever so slightly and cause CAVITATION.
But he also said...no SUB COMMANDER is going to go anywhere near ANTARCTICA....because unlike the Northern Ice Cap....The Southern Polar Region has
land and underocean canyons that have currents that sweep up sunked icebergs the size of buildings in their flow. Split Infinity
