Traverse pics

Busy day today. When I arrived in B2 this morning, the IceCube detector had just failed and the winter-overs were working on bringing the detector back up. I was able to help them with a couple of minor things, so avoiding those few minutes of downtime might have paid for my trip down here!

To fix the problem we went out to the ICL and on my return I took a side trip to visit the traverse vehicles. This group of vehicles starts in McMurdo and takes about a month to drive to the Pole to deliver huge bladders of fuel. I think I heard that this is the first of 3 trips this season.
