Like peas in a pod

August 4, 2013

When working in such an extreme environment as Alaska having the right kind of clothing is crucial. Hypothermia is one of the largest safety risks out here, and this is why we in the information document we send to the students inform them that if they don’t have the right kind of clothing we will send them home. How embarrassing then that two of the field directors found themselves without working waterproof trousers – one of them somehow lost hers from her bag between the field and the hallway, and the other one found himself in leaking waterproofs. Rick did threaten to send them home – but they chose to take it as a joke. How lucky Quinhagak has a pretty well stocked hard ware store – selling sturdy Norwegian raingear. However, the size range is somewhat limited… No matter; one size (M) fits all! Kind of.
