Holy Hamburgers!

Today my Mom--visiting for a couple of weeks--helped me into the suit, and we brought the pressure up to half of what I need (some safety issues prevent me from bringing it to full pressure just yet). And holy hamburgers, the thing works! I am thrilled and astounded and thrilled again! Photos show me in the suit; pressurized (visor fogging is a minor issue that occurs for a known and preventable reason); the stance I am obliged to take when the suit is 'dialed in' with the helmet hold-down cables cinched down; and me out of the suit, pouring sweat (didn't run the cooling system this time, for boring, technical reasons)!
