BEMEP- Online Field Journal, Summer 2004
15 May, 2004
Saturday afternoon- Cayo. Arrived at the Martz Farm Monday afternoon. Spent Tuesday setting up and regrouping. Wednesday I visited all the areas we are hoping to survey. Everything looked great, exactly as I had hoped it would. M-OP1, our largest survey grid, has barely grown since last year. It is only about knee deep in the center of the grid. Off to the west (right) the bush is a little bit higher.
M-OP1, looking south, down the center of the grid.
Thursday I visited Group S (M-OP3) and cleared the plaza there. Friday I returned and laid out that plaza, then went on to Group D (M-OP4) and began clearing that plaza. Monday I will finish the clearing there and lay out the grid. the rest of the coming week I will spend at M-OP1 clearing and laying out one of the big grids.
Our amazing PahaQue tent in action next to the Landcruiser at the Martz Farm. I couldn't be more comfortable unless I had my own house down here.
