The Scott Base Road Sign, originally built from spare parts in 1999 by carpenter Grant Shadbolt with tongue in cheek, became somewhat of a local landmark.
Scott Tent. This is still the same basic design tent that was used by Scott and his men 100 years ago in Antarctica. Very reliable and practical for the local conditions.
