The day of a trip is always more or less the same. In the morning we make water, have breakfast, check the vehicles, and tear down the camp—and everyone has a role to play in this process. It is important that the toilet and food box are packed so that they can be easily reached. Then we travel for 10-15 hours and, again, look for a place to spend the night.If we plan to stop for a long time, then we put up a communal tent for the kitchen, where we can cook dinner. Then we check everything again, and sleep. So, it's camping and travelling,and trying to get some sleep in between.
If the temperature drops below -20ºC, the vehicles must be left running for the night. We position them so that the sound of the engine does not interfere with our sleep. If the car freezes over, there will be problems with fuel, filters and parts. Once, we had to shut down the car at the South Pole at -25ºC because the noise was disturbing the guests. We, of course, managed to start it later, but it was rather challenging. If the temperature drops below 30-40ºC, metal becomes more brittle and it’s easy to break something. Therefore, in such conditions, we try to do everything more carefully.
