Following on from a comprehensive briefing from our expedition leader Guy Cotter yesterday, today we spent 4 hours checking that all our equipment is ready for the upcoming journey into the heart of Antarctica. It is imperative we have all the items we need as there is no shop around the corner should we have forgotten anything! We managed to consolidate our kit to include only the most vital of items as we have a definite limit to what we can take with us so each item is discussed in great detail, and sometimes at great length, to determine whether we take it or not. At the end of this process we all felt much more comfortable with the upcoming trip and the exact purpose of each piece of equipment.
