Finally eiowt of there

As the Canadians might say. Stunning, gobsmackingly beautiful cold desert landscape and the Camp is a buzz, literally. They are doing some interesting work. I'll try to describe as I get time to write these.

I've been checked out on an All Terrain Vehicle aka a quad bike in Australia. Driving and safety rules are sensible - helmet, radio and shotgun if going out of sight of camp, always at least in pairs and usually threes with the most experienced front and rear. To preserve the landscape as much as possible, never - ever - go off the track. Tell someone where you are going...

The Haughton Crater is a mile or so away - I'm hoping to drive down into it tomorrow if anyone can be spared to be the lead traverse and show me the way.
