# Hours the ATVs were Used today: 0

Notes on ATVs: We are planning a morning trip to Loa tomorrow for two
more batteries and a spark plug for the Honda. Also some battery
screws and bolts. Two of the 350’s are operational: the one that
originally started and the one with the new battery, The Honda just
won’t turn over, even with canned starter. The battery in the 300 was
damaged somehow and needs to be replaced. The remaining 350’s battery
will not hold a charge and also needs to be replaced.

HabCar used and why, where? Yes, to Salt Creek for research. We had
a problem with it not starting once we returned to MDRS and went to
the Quarry. It seems the problem is in the shift column, not the
starter or the battery. We finally got it started and returned to the
Hab only minutes after the two crewmembers who walked back to the Hab
had arrived.

CrewCar used and why, where? No

General notes and comments: Tunnel repairs were almost completed this
morning. The remaining work will be done tomorrow morning.
