Our helicopter flight out to the field camp was delayed until after the weekend. Before we are allowed to deploy, McMurdo sends out carpenters to build the Polar Havens. These are large, durable tents which we use for our kitchen and storage. Because of weather delays earlier in the week, they weren't able to build them in time for us to deploy on the weekend.

This isn't our polar haven, but it is very similar to what ours will look like.
