One of the first things that I noticed when I got off the plane in Antarctica was all the strange vehicles around. Some of them were modified versions of vehicles that many people would see every day such as a Ford F-350 or a passenger bus, but here the F-350 has tracks and the bus has tires as tall as I am.
