Today, our friend Sean gave me a ride in the John Deere
Gator 6X4 or as Sean affectionately called it, The
Clown Car. It's the smallest vehicle operating on
Station this winter and was a lot of fun to ride in.
I'm not sure why there aren't more of these on station
since they're perfect for departments such as Housing
that don't need a full-sized vehicle or need to go
onto the ice shelf, but need something to haul things
around in. In reality, The MEC, in which Sean is the
Supervisor, needs a full-sized truck, but they do
make the best use out of the Clown Car. Plus I'm
sure it's more fun to drive.
