Field Camp - Antarctica Dogs

Back to gallery    Back to thumbnails   Previous page   Next page

A typical camp layout with the two sledges parked parallel about 10 yards apart and the tent pitched in between. Here the dogs have been spanned on the wire night span (at right angles to the sledges) for those designated as chewers and on the rope main trace for non-chewers. Each dogs is on an individual trace with sufficient room to move around but not enough (in theory) to get at each other and start a fight.

From Memories of Antarctica:

The sound of 130+ sledge dogs all howling at the same time on their spans on the North East Glacier behind Stonington Island base.
