Wow what a blitz it has been around here lately. Seems that time is accelerating as the Dranitsyn cruises towards us with the Leg 2 group of scientists and crew. They are ready, I’m sure. But it seems that we arenot yet ready to hand everything off to them. So many last minute details to finish. We’ve had to fix instruments, re-deploy systems, document everything, upload data, clean. So much to get done in order to feel good about setting Leg 2 up for success. I am sure it will not all get done, but these days are full with trying.
