Saturday 11th February – arriving home

Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd January – the move routine

The routine of moving the modules is becoming slicker, and I’m managing my input to suit the night moves.

Tuesday 3rd January

Today we got the B2 and B1 modules rigged up and winched away from each other and the C module.

Friday 13th January – Big red (module A) aligned, ready to bring over module C

Module A was aligned to the Trelleborg at the South end. This was mainly done simply because the alignment from arrival was good and the snow beneath the crane pads slightly angled to allow the module to drift westwards as the module was winched onto E1. The winching needed some preload from a ...

Sunday 29th January – first experience of Rothera research station

I was up at 7am and sorted myself breakfast, which will need to last me through to brunch at midday. I use the morning to send some emails and download photos from my camera as back-up onto my laptop.

After brunch we went on walk with others who came from Halley around the point, which is esse...

Saturday 28th January – farewell Halley, hello Rothera

I woke up early to my room-mates’ VHF radio at 0600. I had breakfast, swapped email and mobile details with a few of the team. I saw the team off on the Snowcats, whilst I spoke to the BAS Station Leader about getting over to site VI for my flight.  The final ride across to site VI was great b...
