This morning I head out for survival school, or as it is called "Happy Camper School." It is an overnight trip by Scott Base (NZ base). What I know so far: morning - lectures, afternoon - build snow shelter, night - sleep in snow shelter I built, day 2 morning - learn how to fall down a slope with pick-axe in hand (nothing like performance assessments!), afternoon - head home.
When I get back I'll fill in the details.
