On 11/10/16, a windy and cold day, Demian’s and my bags fell off the siglin sled as we drove back to camp. In that realization, we failed to grasp the importance of the sample bag having also ripped open at the zipper. About two days after, we discovered that one rock was missing from that day. Since my pack also contained samples from the day, we sort of thought it must have fallen out. Today we realized that the problem was much more significant. Today we found three samples that were lost that day. Since only one sample was unaccounted for, the other two must represent duplicate rocks or samples that were collected as multiple pieces. Just further proof of how irritating the wind is. It is hard to focus on outdoor tasks like organizing samples when the wind is blowing.
