My Bear Grylls Experience

Hi everyone. A lot of what I’ve been doing related to the permafrost soil has been the same (digging profiles and processing samples), but I’d like to quickly recount how I built my first warming fire in the Siberian Arctic- Bear Grylls style.
As some of the other blog entries have mentioned, it’s been cold and snowing on and off all day here in Cherskiy. Therefore, while we were out collecting samples, Valentine suggested building a small fire by our sampling site to keep warm. We built up a starter and, four matches later (an impressively small figure considering it was a cold windy Arctic day), we had our fire going.
Until Later- Joanne
