Cold

Since this is at the end of your expedition, I have 2 questions. The first is how much more accustomed to cold weather do you think you have grown throughout this expedition? The second would be how well prepared were you for this expedition? ( weather, provisions, etc.)

Re: [PolarTREC] Cold

Hello and thanks for the questions.
I regret to report that I have no super human resistance to cold.
In terms of my preparedness, I had everything I needed. I may have been able to leave about a third of my socks and underwear at home had I known I would be going back through McMurdo as much as we did. There is one thing that I found I was consistently missing...toothpicks. It was one of those things that I never did find a suitable substitute for.
