Field conditions in the Gobi were harsh and required motorized transport as well as the assistance of camels both for carrying supplies and for their fur, which was used to package specimens for the long trip back to the U.S.   In 1922, Andrews was accompanied in the Gobi by two Colgate family members, S. Bayard Colgate (son of Sidney M. Colgate) and Gilbert Colgate (both were grandsons of Samuel Colgate II, 2nd President of Colgate and Co. and former Board President of "Madison University" (precursor to Colgate University)).
