We've started our new expedition. The mood is sombre. The new researchers who've come in to replace the others are all field team veterans, so we haven't lost much expertise.
The journey to the old station is going to take days. We've split the group into two, with one group taking the Jeeps and finding the fastest route, then setting up the camp at an appropriate place, and the other group following behind with the animals. It's more efficient. I went with the animals, and I'm exhausted. Obviously, I'll adapt, but right now, I just want to sleep.
