A new drive on sol 4664 and a bit of a correction for the last one. EDIT - corrected by someone who would know better than I do - the drive was on sol 4665. I will fix it on the next map.

We had a nice 36 m drive on sol 4670, certainly leaving that mound behind without scrambling up it. When I was teasing Olivier about it I thought we were further SE than we really were - I found it hard to match the surface and HiRISE views of the hillside.

A new map base to extend to the gully, AKA Perseverance Valley.

Getting close to the steeper slope down off Cape Tribulation now.

Oops, a bit off track with the last drive. Here's an update to sol 4688, tiptoeing down the slope.

Almost 40 m on sol 4695, and we are off Cape Tribulation and on the plains again!

A very small move on sol 4699 - this map has some corrections to locations on the hill based on the recent JPL map update, but I am having some difficulty reconciling sources.

Update to sol 4705. Wherein I make the preposterous assertion that Opportunity drove over 130 m. I dare say Curiosity could do the same if it didn't have those awful bunions.

Tootling along at a fine old clip on sol 4708, covering 63 m, and at this rate we will be looking down the valley in only a week or so.
