Question: Has Opportunity equaled her distance driving from Eagle Crater to the First time she reached Victoria Crater to the time she left the rim of Victoria Craters yet?

You could calculate that yourself very easily just by looking at ET's maps, and by reading the odometry updates at the JPL site.

The question piqued my curiosity so I checked the odometer updates and did the math.

But I will be keeping the answer to myself. tongue.gif

UMSF membership requires knowing how to fish. No free (fish) lunch here. laugh.gif

Yes, it's much more helpful to tell someone to look it up themselves than to give a 1-word answer! My dad did that to me all the time. Now I do that to my own kids, and they don't like it any better than I did when my dad did it to me.

Here's an easy trick Bobby. What you really want to know is whether the arrival at Victoria was half the odometer reading that we have now. So check out our present total and cut it in half. Then compare that to the odometer reading at Victoria.

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

Thanks ElkGroveDan. I got part of it figured out now. Found a web link that on Sol 951 or September 27, 2006. Opportunity arrived at Victoria Crater and had 9.28 KM or 5.77 miles. That's nearly 4 years ago. Seems like 2 years ago. WoW. Now we are up to 22 KM.

We had a year exploring the north rim, and then a year going in and back out, and it's been roughly two years since we left - so there's your four years. (I know - doesn't seem like it, does it )

We've almost trebled to odometry since arriving. NICE result.

Since the original question appears to have been forgotten I'll throw this out there: Oppy left Cape Agulhas on the rim Victoria on sol 1683, on sol 2199 the distance traveled post-Victoria exceeded the distance traveled pre-Victoria.

What I can say is that the pictures were taken on sol 2313 by the automatic AEGIS sw.

..., on sol 2199 the distance traveled post-Victoria exceeded the distance traveled pre-Victoria.

Sol 2199 was after visiting the "Twin Craters" (San Antonio).

Oops, that should have been 2299.

Data from sol 2326 are flowing down.
The mobility info from the tracking web tells that this drive was executed as 74m in "blind mode"/"slip check" (as usual) + an additional 12m in "dancing the conga" mode. Total 86m!

Thanks for the prompt updates !
brief question: Is the current drive-every-other-sol pattern due to normal "restricted sols" or is the "resting day" in between drives still needed to to avoid elevated wheel currents ?
