Looking for new sites

August 5, 2013

Three of us went out to look for new sites which involved digging 0.3m x 0.3m test pits in the ground approximately 1km from our current site. Unfortunately just beneath the vegetation cover we hit permafrost. We also experimented the soil prob and managed to drill into the permafrost but nae luck. No new sites today but as from tomorrow we will have a dedicated team exploring specific areas of the landscape following the advice of some of the Quinhagak inhabitants.

Andrius using the soil prob

Frozen mud !

On the way back we got the van stuck in the gravel on the side of the road. Of course it’s totally irrelevant to mention who the driver was…

We won’t be challenging for the Camel Trophy or the Paris-Dakkar!
