Antarctic Camper Logs Two Years in TentBy Steve Casimiro on December 17th, 2012
Stacie Murray likes fresh air. Really really likes fresh air. The chef for the U.S. program in Antarctica spends almost every night in a tent overlooking a beautiful stretch of icy water, and she just logged her 730th day — two years of camping in the harshest environment on earth. In an email to Adventure Journal, she wrote, “Last night was my two-year mark for sleeping in a tent in Antarctica. It has not been all in a row, but over the past few seasons here on the ice. I awoke this morning to beautiful calm weather, minke whales feeding on krill out my front door and hot coffee, brought to me to celebrate my achievement.” Certifiably badass, but Murray isn’t the only woman camping on the ice. Kerry Kells does it, too, and you can find out just what it’s like here. Boys, are the girls trying to tell you something?
