Nikumaroro: Challenges to Doing Archaeology 1

I'm sometimes asked how come, given that Nikumaroro is such a small island and we've been there so often, we're still uncertain about exactly what's there to be found that might be related to Earhart.  Having just learned (I think) to add images to a blog posting, I thought I'd illustrate.  Apparently I can include only one image per post, so there will be several posts to follow.

Here's Challenge #1: Scaevola frutescens, or Mao: Covers many areas of interest including the Seven Site.  Grows about 3 meters high, tangled, very hard to cut. Here John Clauss tries to penetrate a patch.  Not easy.
