Pressurization Hose

A day off from field school, spent entirely on the suit project. I rebuilt (tenth time now) the oral-nasal mask (I think it's almost right now) and began work on the suit pressurization hose connection hardware. Above, working out the best place to install it; actually the best place is a few centimeters lower, to avoid complication with other systems, and to allow ease of use not when standing, but sitting. While many balloonists fly standing, I will have to fly in the seated position, for a number of reasons.
