We sequenced the last two MI stacks today and took more drive direction Pan today. It seems possible we will be driving off on Monday.
Small steps at first since we are going to try to continue the Radio Science experiment and need to track vehicle movement using VisOdom.

That's right. To orientate people, the northen end of Cape York is towards the right edge.

the early movements might be more like centimeters, to reposition the IDD workspace... but it's nice to be anticipating a drive soon.

OK, any chance you can go and fix a couple of actuators for me? laugh.gif Not having the IDD Az was a pain this past winter!

So this really is goodbye to Greeley - the PS update talked about bumping and rotating to get a new IDD work plane.

I like the new plan! wheel.gif wheel.gif

And thanks, Stu, for the great interview - my favourite quote:
