Spirit Sol 645

I'm Spirit's RP-1 today, but Spirit doesn't really need an RP. That's because they planned two sols yesterday, leaving nothing for an RP to do today.

Well, not quite nothing: I do have to weigh in on whether we should take PCAMs to support a possible southward, as opposed to the originally planned eastward, drive. My reaction: meh. We still ought to drive (eastward) to the lip and see if the slope there is as bad as we suspect before we give up on that path and head southward, so a south-looking PCAM from this position isn't likely to help much. But they're looking to spend the bits and taking it does keep our options open, so they take it anyway.

See? I'm not completely useless today.
