TIGER in Antarctica, November 20, 2003
Provision Crates from Scott's Expedition
I tried to take pictures that were different from last trip. Here are two of the officers bunks. One of them was used by Evans, Scott's first officer and one of the real heroes of Antarctic exploration.
Inside Scott's Hut
Scott's Hut has an L-shaped Antechamber that isn't as insulated as the inner room. The ponies had their stables on one leg of the "L", and the other leg (which you enter the main hut through) was used for tool and other storage. This is a picture showing some of the tools that were left here.
The Kitchen Inside Scott's Hut
The Scott's hut trip was on the 19th. Today was another day getting TIGER ready. I'm glad that TIGER is in good shape, because I'm running awfully tired today. In the evening, Bob Binns and Paul Dowkonnt show up from Christchurch. I guess one boomerang flight was enough.
