We left St. George this morning for Las Vegas, where we had to run a couple errands. First, to FedEx to pick up a few things. Then, to the DOE office to pick up our badges to get us into the test site for mandatory training on Monday. Inbetween the two, we grabbed lunch--nothing at all Las Vegas-fancy--and after the two we hit the road again. We arrived in Parump, Nevada, around 4:30 PM. Another day of driving. We just can't get enough. Okay, I think we've both had more than enough. We're ready to start actually installing some sites. We decided to take a break once we checked into our hotel after looking at maps and coming up with a plan, and tonight we'll get the equipment ready so we can pretty much just hit the road tomorrow and get crackin'. That will be nice. Nice and HOT. It's been hot hot hot, was 95 deg. when we rolled into town and I think was closer to 100 in Las Vegas. Windy, too. Hot wind over black parking lot pavement. Hot.

I feel like I'm home. We've only been on the road a couple days, but already I'm excited to check in somewhere that we'll be staying more than one night. We can work from here as a home base for a few days, which makes life seem simpler. I like it. I'm happy.

Kickin website and wicked job. I was wonderin' what camera you use because the pictures you have posted are great. Also, did you do most of you blog entries and picture manipulation on a laptop and then transfer them to computer connected to the internet? I am heading to McMurdo this year and would like to document my time there and just wondering what is the best way to do it.

Thanks a lot.

thanks again

hey beth!
It was great to see you when you were here, I wish we had more time to visit. I think I gave you the wrong date for "talk like a pirate day" (oops) Its September 19th.
