[i]SHEPARD: If we'd gotten to the point where we'd be willing to do away with the rest of the traverse, we could have made the rim all right. But I personally wasn't willing to do that. I felt that gathering more samples was the better of the two choices. We looked at the map again today and described two boulder fields that indicate we were probably within 150 to 300 feet - depending on those two boulder fields - of the rim and still were not able to see it. That was a pretty good-sized lunar feature, to be that close to the top of the thing and not see it. That is just part of the navigation problem.
MITCHELL: At this point, in spite of my personal frustration - and I know Al felt frustrated in the same way - to have us stop at that point and turn around and come back was a proper decision.[/i] [/B][/QUOTE]
