PECAN: Fixed PISA 5 – Again

PECAN: Fixed PISA 5 – Again

July 8, 2015 0 By Brian

My team did end up rotating to Colby, Kansas on June 30th. Just before that, we had a team member swap. Connor was going back to his school’s team, and we gained Hunter in return. We made the drive to Colby, and then had a mission that night. In fact, we had missions every night; including on the 4th of July. Being on missions every night made the week go by very fast. We did finally get a day off on Monday, so my team grabbed dinner and went out for drinks afterwards.

The weather over the week was relatively uneventful. There were storms a few times over the week, but Brewster and Colby never really got anything until Sunday night. Sunday night there was some amazing lightning. But of course, I didn’t charge my cameras battery. So the only lightning bolt I recorded was on my cell phone.

Tonight I sit inside the FP5 trailer, on my last mission in Kansas. In the morning we will be rotating to the FP4 site in Nebraska. There we will remain for the remainder of the project, which ends one week from today. Overall, it’s been a blast and a great experience, and I will be sad when it ends. At the same time, I have been here for about a month and a half now, and it will be nice to get back home. And I am especially looking forward to moving into my new apartment in Peoria.
