Progress continues at the Wilkins runway, with proof rolling completed and some hard work by the gang doing some repair work. The next step was to commence surveying works.
The guys made the most of some clear days which usually mean better GPS reception in the remote location. Working in the sunshine can sometimes be made harder by the wind, particularly when it’s −25°C but with the occasional break to warm up the surveying process is on track. On top of getting a runway operational the guys are required to keep the camp running. With just four of us to keep the place running — cooking, cleaning and melting snow for our water supply are all jobs that are second nature to the Wilkins crew.
