Best birthday present ever

Best birthday present ever

A good friend of mine has one of the coolest jobs in the world, he drives the MER and MSL rovers! Last week he sent me a surprise early birthday gift [see image] Pretty mind blowing little present, still thrilled. I spent days just looking at the pictures from sols 3342, 3343 and 3344, and staring at the location in Google Mars... It will be hard for my friends to top this one. The next best thing would be being there myself.
