Summary: We lost radio communication and got off track with time but managed to reach the target using map and GPS. Spent more time on the way to find the existing trails and not to create new. Found the path and reached target. Did the physical analysis of the regolith there at different depths. Collected samples at the same time for chemical analysis.
