USAP Project Profile

Antarctic Luggage

Antarctic Luggage!

After months of planning [ culminating in the USAP Science Support Project Profile paperwork ] there was still schlepping to be done at the Christchurch NZ Departure Center. The carry-on bags: two duffel bags (one containing official NSF-issued Extreme Cold Weather gear that we had to keep with us during the flight, in case of some unthinkable emergency), plus a laptop computer bag, a camera bag, and a giant parka. The dark portion of the image is a larger duffel bag, roughly large enough to contain a corpse. Everyone wore one set of polar-issue clothing during the flight, along with the red parka, which doubled as a sleeping bag.
