Hi yg! The weather here seems unusual. I haven't heard anything official, but it seems to me like we're having the warmest February I can recall. Heck, right now it's 79° out, where usually we'd be happy to break 40° on a warm day, and more often it's in the 30's or less. Today's temp is the exception beyond the exception though. At this point I am beginning to wonder if these extremes will carry over into summer. Time will tell.

I hope you folks out west will soon be able to dry out a bit. Perhaps this effectively puts an end to your drought.

A belated thanks Elorrum for your photos of the playa.

..and congratulations on the big move Trilo!

Thanks! At the same time... don't be surprised if we spin off a "branch office" or "satellite shop" to make bicycle repair available in an under-served neighborhood. We have people who are eminently capable of running their own camp, and I would encourage that. Heck, I did a 25-head Theme Camp in only my second year. It would be cool to see some of our recruits "graduate" that way now.

Greetings, friends.

Pull up a chair, while papa Rhino tells you everything that's been going on.

Yep, I'm settled in now as a PhD student. Took 3 hours in the fall to square things away, and I'm taking a full graduate level load of coursework to settle in. Research they grade as "S" or "U" (satisfactory or unsatisfactory). In the fall, I took 3 hours of Research, while I TRIED to explain to my advisor the focus of the dissertation. It's multidisciplinary, multilocation, and involves elements of soil science, geology, fluid physics, and geochemistry. Task 1. Map the Sangamonian interglacial surface between two loess deposits (windblown DUST). Big potential payoffs of landslide prediction. Task 2. geochemical analysis and interpretations of Black Rock playa DUST. The potential payoffs are unknown, other than a new model of dust deposition. Task 3 may involve an active volcano, so we'll wait until later to tell you about it.

I'm OK for now, but I miss you guys. See you an three years.

Hey, Rhino!
Sounds like quite a schedule you have set for yourself.
Landslide prediction would be valuable indeed.
