Shock horror! The internet has been down for a whole day, plunging us back into the dark days of the 1990’s! This isn’t due to dodgy wiring, but to having to raise the satellite dish onto a new mound of snow to prevent it getting buried in snow over winter. Dean and Dave, the coms managers needed only 8 hours to move the dome, but another 8 to scan the cosmos for our link to humanity. After a few false starts the satellite was located sometime after midnight. Nice work lads!
Playing on the new tracked Quad
Back outside, the new Honda Quads (“A great toy… sorry, scientific research vehicle” (Top-Gear Magazine)) are proving useful and reliable. Martin wanted a few photos so two ‘Antarctic Hero’s’ posed in the low sun. Jealously guarded by the garage, I managed to grab a go and went exploring the mounds and wind tails on the tracked quad. The grip is unbelievable.
