Not much new to report, unless you count my trip to the emergency room yesterday. Nothing to worry about, though. It turns out that the medication I was taking for high blood pressure contains a diuretic; when you combine that with a substantial increase in physical exertion, it results in dehydration. They have switched me to a new medicine that does not have the diuretic component, so everything should be fine now.
Next week we’ll be doing more hands-on stuff out in the field, so hopefully I’ll have some good pictures to post at the end of it.
