We traveled across Nansen Sound and turned around to see the weather station
in the distance. We traveled in snow roving vehicles known as "bombardiers".
The ride was extremely bumpy. The fiord that we were on was known as
Slidre Fiord. The bombardiers were so noisy, we had to stop on the ice
any time we had to communicate with another vehicle. Our bombardier had
anti-freeze spilled on the engine so we had smoke pouring into the
compartment. We opened our doors to 30 degrees below zero Fahrenheit
temperatures to vent out the smoke.
