A Working Title

In lab last Friday, we had a tour stop meeting.  At the meeting, we discussed the issues we were having when making tour stops, and how best to fix those issues.  After mulling over the conversation for a few days, I am still left with the impression that we could not figure out the answers to the majority of our issues. For awhile, I was pretty confused as to why all of these questions were left unanswered.
