Antarctica Oct 16

 Dear All... Today we learned all about snowmobiles... How to see if they were functioning when we brought one out in the field... Including checking for air in the air intake, checking the engine belt, changing the spark plugs in case of engine flooding!!

We then set out to the sea ice to try out the snowmobiles... So much fun!!

Everyone here is so fascinating... tomorrow we are off for our first aerial photography. Flying to Marble Point and back over a few sea ice locked icebergs and some glaciers.

Hope all is well up north!
