The Recovery Attempt #2

Late on Friday we had concluded that we would likely not recover our payload until early next week but that all change when Chuck gave me a call on my way home.  He said that he would be able to go out to the site on Saturday morning where our payload was and see if he would be able to recover it for us.  I shared with him our coordinates and anxiously awaited that morning.

On Saturday morning just before 8 I thought that he might benefit from having a picture of what he was looking for so I sent along the following.


The coordinates marked while standing under the tree and a picture looking up at the payload.


Shortly after 8:30 I received a text, he had located the payload and was headed back out of the forest to get his gear to climb.  At this point I was excited and relieved.  I waited for further communication and about an hour later I received a text saying “Got it”.  I know that I didn’t out loud but I think an internal yell of WooHoo rang out.

His text was followed with these pictures.

The look down for a top the tree.


And the payload safely sitting on the tailgate of his tree.

This followed with a few tweets…
