Camp night

A highlight for me I’ve been looking forward to this event ever since I herd we had a chance to sleep on the ice. To sleep on the ice you have to protect yourself from the cold as much as possible that means thick down sleeping bag, plenty of thermal underwear and a bivvi bag, a robust outer sleeping bag to protect you from the elements. ┬áIn addition we dug a pit in the snow and ice, about 6inches deep, enough to build a surrounding wall used as a wind break, essential.

-7 degrees with occasional snow flurries and clear skies, ideal, slept well and saw the ‘southern cross’ and parts of the Milky Way a very fulfilling experience for me, one that everyone should do once in there lives.
