Transport

 

 

Check out our “Drillers Bike”.  Its a Trek Antelope 820 single speed and front brake only.  Pretty sweet ride.

 

This is a Caterpillar Challenger specially prepared for Antarctic Operations.  These are the machines that are used to traverse to deep field camps.  When the drill is traversed to Lake Willans these will be used to tow all of the equipment.  They traverse at about 4-5 mph.

My nephew Parker loves planes and so do I:

 

DC3 aka The Gooney Bird

DC3

C 130 aka the Herc

 

This is the reel unit container.  We spent the summer in Lincoln, NE building this part of the drill.  Inside are two large hose reels, and a massive traction drive as well as enough control panels and wires to outfit a small submarine.  There is some really cool stuff in here that we designed this summer.  More on that some other time.
