Off Again in an Open Boat
March to Safety
You try to pitch the tents on the beach, but the wind rips them to shreds. You huddle under the upturned boats and fall asleep. Whaling ships never stop at Elephant Island, and the nearest manned station is on South Georgia, hundreds of miles away — so you’re not home and dry yet.
HANDY HINT

Build a hut with two upturned boats lashed together. Raise the boats on stone walls for more room.
Based on the book You Wouldn't Want to Be a Polar Explorer!
