We waved goodbye to the ship amidst bellows of orange smoke from our flares.
I drove a snowcat back up to a much quieter, more laid back, winter base.

Since then we've had the traditional melt tank party (13 of us crammed into a 1.5m square tank before the summer accomodation building is closed down for the season). Photos to come.

Tomorrow I'm off for a week of camping 50km from the base. Ice climbing, abseiling, exploring and trying not to get tooooooo cold. I will write at length of my adventures when I return. Sorry for the poor blog keeping. It can only get better!
