It is HOT. Unfortunately there is not much of a breeze on the river. What breeze
does exist carries with it hot air. We can find some reprieve in the lab that has
an air conditioner. We started our survey upstream from where we ended the previous
day. We found what we think is the Reelfoot fault and wish to image it again.
Debris was not our friend today. Twice Dolly broke loose. It is not a simple task
to reattach Dolly. She has to be retrieved and the streamer reeled in to zip tie
her back onto the streamer lead rope. Rolling a heavy 300 ft (one football field)
streamer gets tiring, but you gotta do what needs to be done.
