Well I’m here. My trip ended up being 27 hours and it was great to get here and sleep and wake up to a delicious telescope breakfast:
I found this fine literature in the desk drawer in my room, left from a previous inhabitant:
Today we worked hard on cooling and code. Clio code, AO code, DigiPort code. The mountain internet was down for about 4 hours. Laird arrived safely and the mystery guest got stranded in Santiago and will be here hopefully tomorrow.
I did manage to get Clio down to almost 77 K in one day! Clio drank his liquid nitrogen very well today.
And we saw a herd of 5 guanacos running along the hillside as we were heading back up after lunch:
