Weather looks to be clear, sunny, and hot (95°F, 35°C). Bring sunscreen.
The location is near a geothermal power plant, so there are nearby hot springs and other signs of previous volcanic activity. The location is in a large open area with clay covering the ground along with white, red, and black lava rocks. Sagebrush bushes were seen in abundance, but there was a large clearing in the sagebrush at the coordinates, apparently because it was unable to grow there effectively. Near the coordinates, the clay became spongy.
We saw a jackrabbit and some lizards. Also saw some large, old fecal matter of some kind making trails, and some bird droppings (from vultures?).
Pending any work-related disasters or alternatives discussed in the Talk page, Paveman will bring coffee and snacks at 4:00 PM.
Moose Hole might be coming to this at 4:00 PM.
Genny, Mark, Moose Hole, and Russell drove to the nearest point to the coordinates on the road and ate some food. They were shortly met by Paveman at about 15:45 local time. The party made their way out to the coordinates, which they reached at about 16:05 local time.
They played apples to apples and threw a boomerang.
