It feels like it's been forever since I've spent the day with my team. Luckily, the wait ended today. I woke up an optimist this morning. I just knew that something good was going to happen. I was right! The girls and mentors returned to the shop today! I screamed so loudly when I saw them. Ok, so I didn't really, but I did in my head. Some of my friends are still away on vacation, and I miss them dearly. However, they will be home in time for competition. I am glad to have the team members that are with me, though.
We had so much fun today! The girls made duct tape bows to give out at the competition, made plans for the upcoming weeks, strategized, and talked about scouting.The programmers set up my new radio and tested some autonomous code on me. It still needs some tweaking, but they already have ideas for improving it. My winch motors were mounted and wired. I am very close to having all of the same funcitons as Lumos!
The next two days are going to be crazy. Lumos is going to be out of the bag a bit each day. The programmers hope to get autonomous working better. The builders hope to get the hangers to work. Hopefully by Thursday night, both Lumos and I will be able to hang from the bar. That's all I want.
