Earsom.My observer Nick Wirwa probably thought I was a bit twisted when, after the unavoidable last minute preparations and occasional snafus, I told him I thought we had progressed to having less than a hundred items left to do before departure for the spring survey. This was after I had finished my preflight and we had loaded everything into the plane. I persisted though, giving him another update when I was pretty sure we were down to the last half-dozen items, which occurred when we were sitting in the plane—for the second time—after remembering a couple of items while sitting in the plane the first time. The good news is we’ve arrived in Canada, and Nick is rolling well with the punches. More updates soon.
