I’ll set up a conference line tomorrow morning and send you the information. I had to leave the office a
little earlier than I expected today.

and plan to be in the office from about 7:30am central time to about 4:00pm. Any chance you would be
available for a short chat about Radon? I don’t think this would take longer than about 30 minutes.

because I was hoping to talk to you more about the Radon flux/emanation measurements related to a
pyrolysis study. I was given the impression that you at least initially suggested that the study include radon
and that the result might help improve the associated radon modeling of the site.
