# Hours the ATVs were Used today: 0

Notes on ATVs: Nothing to report

HabCar used and why, where? Yes, to gather garbage to take to town tomorrow. I forgot to note earlier that the shifter has broken but it is still usable.

CrewCar used and why, where? Yes, to town to do laundry. I forgot to note yesterday that I drove it on the dry, paved roads in 4×4. It had been put in 4×4 by someone on the work party, and I didn’t notice it before I drove it. I tested it in all 4 modes and there appears to be no damage. I do need to get this vehicle in for repairs as soon as I can get someone to drive with me to drop it off for service. It needs work on the undercarriage.

Luna used and why, where? Yes, to go to storage units and pick up all materials related to spacesuits

General notes and comments: The storage units are not yet cleaned out but they have been emptied of much unused materials. What will be left when completed will be stored in a single unit and will include the HabCar rear seat, rear seat backs for the rovers, Ikea materials for the ScienceDome and the observatory materials. The power tools will be relocated to the station, and what little remains will either be stored here in the shed, given away, or stored with the URC materials in the one remaining unit.

Summary of internet: All nominal.

Summary of suits and radios: The NorCal Chapter representatives will be here tomorrow with the suits. In addition, while they were here they will go through the suit materials that have been stored in the storage unit. I brought these materials out to the station today so they will be able to go through them here.

Campus wide inspection, if action taken, what and why? Lift boom (or is it boom lift?) and power washer are still here. Not sure when they will be picked up.
