It may be quite a bit more than that. From the reports, their tents got 
pretty beaten up by that storm. They are pretty light weight tents, not 
designed to hold up to the wind. There may be other issues with antennas 
and gear.

It's our turn to patiently wait for their decision. In the meantime, 
anyone feeling flush can go to their website and hit donate -- last I 
looked, contributions have covered less than 75% of the costs they 
projected at the beginning of the mission.
