The main symptoms that usually occur with sudden changes in altitude are thirst, coldness, and a feeling of fatigue. Then, in more difficult situations, stomach pains and headaches also appear. In this case, you need to rest, eat, drink water, maybe take some painkillers, and only after you’re feeling better, continue the journey.
Perhaps the most difficult thing for me in Antarctica is the road from the main camp to the temporary one. After all, there are no tracks, you have to drive blindly, bumping into zastrugi and very soft snow, in which cars get stuck every 10-20 minutes. Once, our cars were very heavy, loaded with food and fuel. The longer we tried to pull the car out, the more stuck it got. I had to call the camp to get in touch with the team that was ahead of us, and they came back to help. Another typical problem is vehicle breakdowns. Last year, the absorber in the back of the car broke. It was very cold—below 30 degrees—but the team always has a professional mechanic and all the necessary spare parts with them, so you don't have to worry too much in this kind of situation.
