Happy Camper School- Day 2

After a restful night sleep, we heated water for breakfast and began breaking down camp. Day two of happy camper school involved a debriefing of the previous night's events (what worked, what didn't), learning how to assess potential risks, using the radios, helicopter safety, and final exams. The final exam consisted of several emergency scenarios that required us to use our newly gained knowledge. Although we returned to McMurdo sun burned, wind burned and exhausted, we are all a little smarter and are happy for having had this amazing experience.

How would wearing a bucket be similar to experience a white out?
