During the winter every member of the team heads out into the field for a winter trip. The idea behind it is to give everyone a break from base (and base a break from everyone!) and to provide field training. Four of us (Scott and Dale, Steve and me) headed out just two days after the Shack left. Each pair travels with two skidoos and two nansen sledges, all roped up to protect against crevasse falls. We skidooed to the south-west of Adeleide Island to an area known as Myth, and set up camp.
