Meet the PolarGeeks

Framheim.com was born of a geek and her sister abnormally obsessed with Antarctic history. Primarily influenced by Roland Huntford's Scott and Amundsen, this preoccupation with the race for the South Pole quickly expanded to include the Arctic, all things Norwegian, and the 7-part BBC production of The Last Place on Earth.

Reading up on the heroes and the pretenders who lived the history of the Antarctic, one can't help but think "What would I have done if my ship were being crushed by pack ice? How would I have chosen who went with me to the pole? What is hoosh, anyway?"

Framheim was created for all those who have ever sat at a wet bus stop, walkman batteries dead and bus a half hour late, and thought "Boy, I'd sure rather be in charge of an Antarctic Expedition right about now."

Emily is the geek-in-chief and web designer (such as it is), and Katherine is her sister and sounding board. Both are gainfully employed in Portland, Oregon, and lead perfectly normal lives. Really.

It's a fact!
