The God Pod

Inisde look into Pegasus Racing 101
1. Yellow foul weather gear hanging, drying.
2. The camping gas stove with the pressure cooker. All of our meals are vacuum bagged and get thrown into the pressure cooker.
3. Philippe doing the navigator's job, scribbling on the board.
4. A red fleece and a blue cushion, I sleep on the nav station seat and that is my pillow.
5. In the forefront, vacuum-bagged meals. These are our total rations for the day.
6. Our sink, only salt water, manual pump. Good to clean dishes and stuff.
7. On the nav station panel, right, you can see the handsets that control the two Iridium satellite systems (the best!) and the Fleet-33 (faster but you can’t really count on it).
8. The fantastic M-802 single side band is the box on the lower right corner.
9. Note the Logitech trackball by my right elbow, mice are not an option with the elements, the constant motion and the heterogeneous reflective surfaces. We use Velcro extensively and the wiring is non-trivial. Everything is at least twice redundant.
