One Month in the Deep Field, Part 3

CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND– After a month in the deep field, I’m back in Christchurch with an internet connection and able to share some of the video we shot.

We had fairly windy weather the whole time we were out, but were left tent-bound by a storm that lasted about three days. This was the coldest time out on the ice, because the wind just finds all the seams in your clothes and you run from your personal tent to the cook tent, and sometimes to the toilet tent! This video clip was shot during the blow and gives you an idea of the conditions.
