Tent (Geoff)

We put up our tent today. We intend to use the tent as a work area at Ridge A. It is easy to assemble (it took us just over 20 minutes, including unpacking of the boxes) and will provide a relatively warm work area:

We used an inside/outside thermometer to measure the effectiveness of the tent; the temperature was -19.9 degrees C (-3.8 F) outside, and 3.5 degrees C (38.3 F) inside, which is very promising.

And a couple more pics:

Tent erected in record time!
