1/15-17

Drill setup, drilled hole 1A to 680 meters, packed drill to move to site 2

1/18-19

Moved to site 1B.  I had worked the night shift and went to bed sometime in the early morning hours.  When I woke up I was the only person left at camp so I packed my tent and hitched a ride on a snow mobile to the new site 1 km away.  We then drilled the second hole to 680 M.
