D-Day minus 51, 18 November 2015: Clothing Alterations
Clothing alterations are done!
Tonight we collected all of the clothes that had been altered for the expedition.
A mega thank you to Christine, from Washington Tyne and Wear, for “burning the midnight oil” on our behalf! She has sewn all the logos on to our shell jackets, which will hopefully keep our sponsors happy.
In addition she has modified and attached the snow valances to our tent, fur ruffs on the anoraks and inserted some extra pockets to the inside of jackets as well.
Working with outdoor clothing requires years and years of experience, to really understand how the clothes need to function and perform. Christine has that knowledge and fair amount of skill!
