It looks like we won’t demobilize until Sunday, maybe even Monday. More days means more money. I’m fine with that. I did get injured yesterday, but it wasn’t that bad. Just cut up my shin.

You know what? I’m exhausted and sitting here in my tent is making me more tired. I will write more once I’m back home; I promise.
