It's our final night on the mountain.  The past few days have been pretty uneventful.  No tarantulas, no pumas, but I think I'm okay with that.  

We've gathered a lot more data and have been analyzing it all.  All in all, we were able to get a lot accomplished during this trip.  We head out at noon tomorrow (well today I guess).  I plan on just staying awake (I napped earlier, we'll see how well this pans out) because I don't think I'd be able to wake up after like 3 hours of sleep.  And hopefully staying up will help flip my schedule back around.  It's been fun being nocturnal, but I don't think my classes and work will appreciate my new lifestyle that much.  

It's crazy to think that we're leaving tomorrow!  I feel like I just got here!  Though I am ready to come home, don't get me wrong, it's been fun, but I miss home and my friends and my family... and my cats!  haha.

Unfortunately, we discovered some useful tricks to the telescope/file handling on the last few days here.  We wrote everything down in our own little "telescope cookbook" so hopefully the next observers will find it useful.  

Now to just finish tonight's observing, pack, and be on our way home.  Only 10 hours on the mountain, and 24 hours of travel stands between me and Bloomington!
