Fog rolled in on the second day in the field while Roger, John, and Wendy worked. Keeping an eye on the ground was tricky on the way back. When the fog closed in, John would spiral up to locate a clearing in the fog so that he could maintain visual contact with the ground.

We will be much more careful about flying in fog in the future. THE LESSON: DON’T DO IT!

The overboot Wendy is wearing came in handy on the ride home.
