Prudhoe Bay
We are staying in a contractor's field camp at Prudhoe, giving us a unique opportunity to experience the "industrial heritage" of this section of the Arctic Ocean. The Deadhorse camp has a main building, called the Base Camp Building. This building has a kitchen and dining room where we will eat. There is also a conference room with cable TV and large plasma television. There are office phones that may be used in an emergency only. Some cell phone carriers do work in Prudhoe but coverage is sketchy. Limited internet access for a fee. Outdoor shoes/boots must be removed when inside the buildings, or the hotel provides "booties" to slip on over your boots when indoors. This building also has two bathroom facilities one for women and one for men, that are shared among all workers and guests. The bathrooms have commodes and shower stalls. We sleep in a dormitory building across the yard. The rooms are small with two beds. No bathrooms in the rooms. There are two bathroom facilities in this building, one for women and one for men, with commodes and showers down the hall.

Toolik Lake
The field station is in a very remote area in a beautiful setting in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range. Breathtaking scenery. This is a rare opportunity to live in a researcher's camp while research is ongoing. Learn first hand about the logistics of supporting scientists and their work in such an isolated corner of the world.

Coldfoot Alaska is not much more than a wide spot in the road, a small oasis of basic accommodations in the remote Arctic wilderness. Located in the Brooks Range in a gorgeous setting. We are staying at Slate Creek Inn, in small rooms that are clean and neat but extremely rustic by urban standards. The rooms have two single beds. We will try to get rooms with private baths, but this is not always possible if those rooms fill up before we get there. (We are guaranteed rooms, just not those rooms.) We may be housed in rooms without bathrooms, with showers and commodes down the hall located in separate men’s and women's bathrooms that are shared among guests on each floor. The dining hall is across a gravel road from the motel. Van transportation between buildings available if requested.
