Mr. Capra's Educational Pursuits in Antarctica

Fuchs Foundation Antarctic Expedition 2010

Norway Training Week 13th-20th of February 2010

It has been a week since we have returned from our Norway training week. It was cold. Very cold. We had conditions of -24 degrees (with windchill) on the night we camped out. Lucky for us, I suppose. 🙂

It was a week to learn about skiing, snow, boots, blisters,  giant blisters, therm-a-rests, who snores, who can pack, and, of course, to test our spirits. I think we make an excellent team and as the time to go to Antarctica approaches, it gets more and more exciting…. We all have our strengths and we had a great time.

Norway – Antarctica Training Week – Feb 2010

Small adjustments in our Antarctic Kit need to be made, other stuff needs to be bought. Now, it is all about getting our Science Experiments ready for our next training week in June and August.

Polar Greetings to you all !
