Well, the Door is stable, and Tom has headed out for an expeditionary trip. As soon as he stepped through, he looked around and yelled back that he recognised some of the landscape. He said that the mountain range to the east (without compasses, he just named it 'east' because that's the where the sun comes up) certainly looks familiar, though he said that the area where he landed is one he hasn't had a chance to explore, yet. We'll know for certain next week when he gets back, but at this point it looks like the move is complete. We're settled in!
As far how things are going on this side of the Door, Frank has almost finished replacing the chain-link fencing that's protecting the room from stray magnetic fields. The first part we changed out was all the stuff on the floor. We now have a smooth sheet-metal floor. Much easier to walk on. Most of the walls have been plated with metal, too. The only part left to convert is the ceiling. Right now we have metal fencing draped across from side to side, and considering the weight, we might just leave it at that for a while.
One new thing that Frank suggested: he wants Tom to bring back some of the natives to visit us on this side. If we do that, we'll have to keep them isolated at first; we gotta keep any potential diseases under control, besides, Tom is the only one that can even come close to translating what they have to say.
We'll let you know what happens as soon as we know.
