Narrative: This EVA is the first of the scientific activities. Locations for deployment of a sampling grid necessary for collection of magnetic material from the top 1 cm of the regolith that could be identified as micrometeorites were visited and evaluated. One corner of potential grid locations were GPS surveyed and photographed for later layout of the grid. There are two locations near Tank Wash off Cow Dung Road (1) and two locations southeast of the junction of Galileo Road and Cactus Road (2). They are as follows:
Tank Wash #1 518472E 4253624N (preference #4)

Cactus Road #1 519570E 4251974N (preference #3)
Cactus Road #2 519958E 4251995N (preference #2)
Destination: Drove from the hab along Cow Dung Road to Tank Wash and then returned to Galileo Road and the junction it has with Cactus Road.
