Training for Antarctica

Some old fool on a quad...!
Part of getting to Antarctica is a truck load of training. This included Quad bikes. To be honest, they really do nothing for me, but the young fellas enjoy them. Bloody uncomfortable, and they seem to suck the energy out of a fella. Two trainers from Honda came in to do the training. Very competant guys who also train all the posties in OZ.

In Antarctica they are used extensively for field trips and S.A.R. (Search and Rescue). Further training is conducted in Antarctica  in the recovery and operation of the quads
