How Did All The Gear Get to the Base Camp?


Suzan Lee Collecting Solar Rays

When you look at a picture of the base camp, with its 4 dome tents, the kitchen tent, the 8 sleeping tents, plus all the scientific equipment, computers, food, and personal gear, All perched on the only
flat spot on a glacial terminal moraine, you can’t help but wonder how it all got there from nearest road.

Having been through this type of expedition before, Cristian hired a
local mule team to transport the boxes, bags, and crates up the hill and through the bolder field to the base camp site. It took 2 and a half days for 6 mules to move all the gear to the site. That’s a big
scientific expedition!
