OFFSHORE NEW HARBOR CAMP, ANTARCTICA– You might be surprised to know that water is one of the most scarce resources in Antarctica. It makes Antarctic camping very difficult especially when you are on the sea ice or in the dry valleys. We were lucky and located only a snowmobile’s ride away from an iceberg caught in the sea ice.
Check out the video below to see how we collect ice from the iceberg for our camp’s drinking water. (Music: “Ethereal Void,” courtesy of Project Divinity.)
