Opportunity has picked up the pace a little as she presses on toward Endeavour crater, recharging her batteries between drives.
First, the rover must clear a region of large ripples, so Opportunity is heading south before the turn to the East. Sols 2206 (April 8, 2010) and 2208 (April 10, 2010), each saw a roughly 50-meter (164-foot) drive straight south.
On Sol 2211 (April 13, 2010), Opportunity drove 30 meters (98 feet) east, deliberately crossing a series of ripples to collect terrain data that will be used to calibrate simulation software. That software will help design future drives.
The right-front and right-middle wheel are exhibiting modestly elevated motor current levels, which the project continues to watch. The plan ahead is more driving. As of Sol 2211 (April 13, 2010), the solar array energy production was 227 watt-hours with an atmospheric opacity (tau) of 0.347 and a dust factor of 0.474.
Total odometry is 20,385.31 meters (20.39 kilometers, or 12.67 miles).
