Hello all,

The 05-06 field season ended on Friday, 03 February after completely winterizing the camp facilities and equipment. The arches served as a winter-over storage shelter that saved many hours of building berms and moving cargo onto them. The arches are certainly impressive. This was a great first season and both the camp staff and arch crew did a fantastic job. Fortunately, there was good weather during the majority of the field season, but I did experience a two day storm that left a lot of snow and some major drifts during its short blow.
