up hydraulic system to raise and lower the vehicle, and an internal air compressor to fill the tires, after emptying them to help better hug the snow on the mountainous terrain. It was a blast and we were fortunate to have Sveinbjörn's assistance in getting to our study site as it had just snowed and it was a challenging trip, even for the super jeep. The snow was very light and grainy and wouldn't stick together, making it difficult to get traction. But, we made it no problem with the assistance of our experienced guide and enjoyed the ride and the adventure.
