Time Departed/Returned from EVA:
First day - Arrival at MDRSDeparted from Grand Junction at 0830 hrs and arrived at Hanksville at 1200 hrs. Rendez-vous with DG went very well, we swapped New Zealand, Australian and Utah's smiles and on our way we went to the hab. It took the commander three times to find the hidden passage to the reserve on the highway, fourth time lucky we were on the top of the hill driving through the Cow Dung Road. Mars laid itself in the front of our eyes just like that. We arrived at the hab around 1300 hrs and exchanged flags, formalities and command with Crew 117 which departed shortly after.
Commander decided to declare R&R (rest and recuperation) time for the rest of the evening and so everyone attended to their unpacking.
