Dear Peter,

Having been warned by Anita, we're trying to arrange our travel plans early this year.
Justin and I have already applied for our visas and will pick them up in NY probably sometime in Mid-April.

We're also trying to figure out when the advance team needs to go to PSI. For the WFDs, few changes are required. I'm pretty sure that the new
firmware, which triggers on a filtered digital data stream, will be ready.
However downloading it to the boards will not require much time. Nor will
a few in-situ tests. The hope is that all those problems will be dealt with in advance. We just need access to the racks when we get there.

The bigger question is when we will have access to the MuSun barrack. Justin (for one) would like to get the whole DAQ
system running on test pulses well before we move in to the area. Even with Volodya around to help, that will take longer.
Ideally we'd like to have DAQ-level access
a week in advance of our moving in. Perhaps Volodya has also expressed an
opinion. I don't know if you have anything special planned for the epcs.

As for manpower, I'll probably be coming over for 3 weeks or so, Justin
for a month, Emma, who is British, about the same and Luis, basically
the whole run. Luis will take time off during the run for a trip to Spain.
We may also have an undergraduate on the team for a month or more. That's
still up in the air.

All for now,
