Crew 131 Arrived at MDRS in the mid-afternoon today. Some of the crew has been noticing the effects of the climate transition with dry skin, chapped lips, and an increased need to hydrate. The crew is noticing several things we will need to adjust to, such as the single-digit degrees and the longer process to prepare food. One of our crewmates in particular feels like she is coming down with a minor cold, after the travel from Florida to MDRS. Other than that, the crew is reporting to be in optimal condition to officially begin our simulation tomorrow afternoon!
