Well, we’ve been here a few days now and I just thought I would update everyone on how things have been going. We had a momentous row this evening. It was a great row and all, but I’m talking more about the fact that we didn’t have to change the rig at all. After 4 rows we’re finally able to just jump in and row. Other than the fact that we’re finding a good rhythm right now and were able to peg 1:15s at a 34, we can just row. It also helps that Ned finally got here today so we’ve got a coxswain now. We’re hitting that good light pop at the front end and just push swing rhythm.

I’ll try to add a few pictures tomorrow. I’m still figuring out all the coding
