Sleeping In An Ice Cave

By Trey Ratcliff From Stuck In Customs


If you’re a Passport Member then you’ve seen about half a dozen of my videos from Antarctica. Here is a link to all the Passport videos published over the past few years and you’ll find them in there!


On my first day in Antarctica, I was shipped off to survival training. This was a great idea, because I’m not much of a survivalist and I could do with a bit of training. We spent most of the day building an ice-block kitchen to block the wind so we could cook some food, set up some blizzard-proof tents, and digging out an ice-cave to sleep in. Now, I didn’t dig out most of this cave, but I definitely got down inside to enjoy its benefits. By the way, in the winter it never gets dark there, so this is what it looks like around midnight.
