Day 1 – Survive in Antarctica

Enjoying the new Presets?

Every month on the first day in my Stuck In Customs Store here, we are releasing new presets at half price ($2.50 instead of $5)! So be sure to set a reminder in your calendar… Feb 1 is quickly approaching and the new presets are just getting bundled up for you now!

Daily Photo – Day 1 – Survive in Antarctica

On the first day there, we went through survival training. This means we had to do everything from learn to dig out an ice cave, build a “kitchen” so we could make food and get out of the wind, set up emergency polar tents, get fuel into the tiny stove, sleep in emergency gear, and more. Here, in this photo, you can see the kitchen that we made and our little camp preparing for the survival night. And, at night at this time of year, it never gets dark… the final thing we did before going to sleep was put on eye-masks… otherwise the light did strange things to your mind…

    How about The Facilities?? Outside or in the Tent?? Made Ice Seats??

  • Wow! I thought it would be colder! It is currently -33 C, -42 with wind chill factor in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories – Canada! That is cold (and not even out coldest temps this winter). what gorgeous photos you’ve shared this far! I especially love the one of the “igloo” that is being built! Stay warm!

  • Wow it’s cold in Canada!! Technically its summer time in Antarctica guess that explains the higher temps.

  • Well not all of Canada is cold, but it sure is here in Yellowknife. I live in a freezer somedays! Today it is extra cold, described as “frigid” on the weather site, -36 degrees, and -46 with the windchill factor! Trey, enjoy the balmy warmer temps in Antarctica!
