Wrapping up in K2

Sunrise
It's nearly balmy outside. Going to try the laundry exchange...supposedly 1-day turn around. After breakfast we visited the dirt testing lab again. It really is fascinating stuff...if you're willing to sift through it. Ha. Sorry, bad pun.
Soil Testing
Most of the rest of the day was spent writing our status report of the work we completed this week. I did have to break away and get my laundry before it closed, as I only had a one hour window. Briefed the Lt that we'd pretty much finished what we came here for. Flight out tomorrow, hopefully.

The weather was nasty, rainy, and windy. It put a smile on my face. Dinner was BBQ ribs. Went back to CE to wrap things up, on the way passing some lighted reindeer and a snowman. It's not even Thanksgiving and the Christmas lights are up!
Went back to my room to pack. It's a good thing I'm wearing my jacket, because I filled up my backpack with souvenirs and there isn't any room left. Fell asleep to the sound of pouring rain.
