Most of the team, except Chris and myself, left for Lake Bonney today morning at 10:30. The flight takes about 30-40 minutes. They will set up the tents and the platform and organize some of the Do-Not-Deep-Freeze stuff that is flown there all through the day. 5 helicopters will transport our stuff to the camp today. Some of the Do-Not-Freeze stuff such as computers, electronics etc. will fly out tomorrow or Friday with the robot. Chris and I are here to baby-sit the robot and make sure that the robot gets handled carefully while transporting to the helo-pad, and do some pending programming work.
A rough estimate from Peter is that the total weight of our stuff would be around 70,000 lbs!
