Cid finds the professor pouring over his tablet in the lounge, reviewing some research perhaps, as he sips some coffee. "Good morning, Doctor. That is a good idea, yes," he says. He puts the tablet down and leads the way to the cargo deck. The explorer is an extra large version, six wheels versus the usual four, 10 seats including the driver, and high enough to cross shallow water (up to about 1.5 m). In the back cargo section are several boxes. Some have GSS logos and contain ropes and other survival gear you requested. The others are in two sets: one large box with holographic recording equipment, and a collection of smaller boxes with specimen containers, old-fashioned marker pens, measuring tools, etc.
"We shall have to take holographs of any structures or other large items, anything too large to fit in the explorer," he starts, as he unpacks the hologear. "Of course, everything must be holographed before we move anything, as the positioning and context are vital for identifying artifacts."
