when the dust settles

The test has informed the next iteration of design about several modifications that need to be implemented. This includes widening the rear cross member, creating areas of ventilation on the top middle panel near the rear, inserting vents along the lower corner panels for exhaust ventilation, and change in seam length. These changes are being integrated into the final design and fabrication which is already under construction for the February 12 departure to Aconcagua where it will be tested in extreme conditions for 24 days.
