The Rauers
As I have mentioned in a few previous blogs, something that I consider to be one of the biggest highlights of wintering in Antarctica is the chance to be part of a Traverse. This year we had the opportunity to load up two Hägglunds, a RMIT Traverse 'Caravan...

I slept with an Apple!
So something that has been out of the ordinary lately is the amount of time we have been spending up on the Antarctic Plateau at Woop Woop. I'm sure everyone remembers my blog from when we travelled up there to retrieve all the equipment that was being used...
