Thanks! Here is the 4991 position - though I have not seen the pictures yet.

9 more sols and then I will wrap up my new version of the Atlas of Opportunity.

Update to sol 4993, and on sol 4994 the MI was used on the rocks in front of the rover.

Whoa! Sprinting uphill on sol 4997. I didn't see that coming. Sort of diagonally across the hill really, but maybe we will take that South Fork now. Who shot JR? (digital Mars Bar to anyone who has the faintest idea what I am talking about - but no replies to this thread please!).

I think the idea is to look down at the SF, then we'll see where to go next.

Here is an overview of the valley activities - we're about half way down the valley now. The other maps fill in details in areas where things get crowded.

A short drive downhill to the tip of the outcrop on sol 5015.

A small move, 40 cm, on sol 5023. I have moved a few feature names around as I learn more about them.

And that short drive was preparing for this - a 4 m drive to the south on sol 5040 to look at some pitted (possibly vesicular) rocks.

This area is so interesting that we just moved backwards and then forwards again to reach a different spot (the arm can't move in azimuth any more). Sol 5057 update.

Sol 5058, another short drive to reach the next target area.

Sol 5060, Opportunity moves a meter on Mars so I have to update my map. Time for some improvements to the base map.

I'm assuming the Oppy outline is to scale, um, how does the rover execute the 180' turns?
Does it do some form N-point turn, or can it do a tank-style "piviot in place" manouver,
I ask because I don't recall ever seeing a circular pivot track.

The scale on Phil's map shows that Oppy's outline is to scale.

Which 180 deg turns are you referring to? There's no turn, eg, between the 5058 and 5060 drives - just driving forwards and backwards.

Ok, that makes more sense, extensive "scuffing" 5022 - 5039 got me thinking which way the rover was facing,
and whether the rover had to do "N-point turns" or whether it could execute a pivot-in-place.
