December 31, 2012 ARA3!

When I woke up this morning (in my own house back in South Carolina), I had this waiting in my email for me:

A3D6 finished!
A3D6 is finished! This is the last hole at the last station of the season so it's a really momentous occasion.

The last hole at ARA3 was drilled today. I can't believe it's only been 19 days since the very first 210 m dry hole ever was drilled. The ARA team has done amazing things this season (13 holes in 19 days!) Good job, guys!
