    Woah. A whole month has gone by since my last post, but it feels like only yesterday. I've never traveled for work at this scale before - a field campaign, a science convention, and preparation for the next field campaign all at the same time. I was in Oahu so long my hotel room started to feel like an apartment.

    Over the next few days I'll try to break down some of the highlights of the trip. The plane containing the PRISM instrument arrived two weeks late. I took a Portugese Man-O-War to the face. We experienced 26 mph winds in Kaneohe Bay during a time period that's historically calm. But after all was said and done, the Operational Readiness Test was deemed a success! Thank God.
