SMAPEx-4 is now officially on the way. Jeff and Tom gave their
opening speeches and all participants are there. Most of today will be
spent on logistical and safety briefings in the morning and a hands-on
soil moisture training in the afternoon. It's a pitch-perfect, blue sky
at the moment, the right weather to get going.
