Boldly Going Late into the Night

Today was a wonderful day in the field. Nice and sunny, and a strong wind most of the day. It kept the vapors under control, and most of the heat off of us.

We managed to get the rest of the extraction wells (2 vapor and one groundwater) completed today. All that is left is to set the well boxes.

Tomorrow we'll be drilling in someone's backyard.

And even with the great field accomplishments, I managed to go see Star Trek tonight. My coworker was incredulous that I would go see a movie at 10:00 PM, and then plan to get up in time to be on site in Stockton at 7:00 AM.

Perhaps.

But the film was amazing. Everyone gets there one line. The new crew is great, and the story is pretty tight (for Star Trek).

The sign to watch for in engineering is the gratuitous oxymoron: INERT REACTANT.
