Re: McMurdo Dry Valleys


Looks like about fifty miles from Mactown to the Dry Valleys.  I think I read somewhere that people usually take helicopters to get there but is it possible to drive it?
What about Black Island?  That’s a lot closer and seems like it could be driven since it is over the Ross Ice Shelf.  Are there ever caravans that trek across the ice with supplies and equipment to there or other places?
I was also wondering about fuel.  Being a precious commodity, I would think it is carefully regulated and records kept as to what vehicle it is put in, and when.
