Shelter From the Cold

Shelter From the Cold

view map

Along the 12-mile road from main base to the radar site are 12 shelters; spaced one mile apart. The weather in Thule can change so quickly for the worse that these shacks may well save your life if things go badly on the 25-minute trip. They are constantly heated with JP8, have a few cots, food and cold-weather gear.

That's a scary thought to have to "survive" in a box out there!
