So my first full day in the field mostly consisted of unboxing things, singlehandedly setting up a computer network and moving a bunch of data around. The other folks moved heavy things with the crane and tried not to get in the way of the folks we're sharing this highbay with -- they were installing the mirror on their absurdly space-age looking gondola today.
It'll probably be a solid 12-hour day here, but it's not too bad. Playing rock music in a NASA hanger in the middle of nowhere with a windstorm howling outside in the pitch black. I've missed this part of the country.
