Pitching A Tent In Antarctica
One day in survival training, Stu and I had to erect our own tent. It was awesome. It's not exactly a normal tent — I believe they are called polar tents. They are built to withstand blizzard conditions. You can imagine a normal tent in a blizzard… that just wouldn't work. So there is all kinds of bracing that have to be in place ahead of time. It's also extra-challenging because either you're hammering these giant iron spikes into solid ice or, if on the main continent, into rocks and gravel. I felt like a real survivor!
