Today we're going to acknowledge a few unsung heroes of the project- the crews and assistants that have been working with us since day one of the project on the boats and in the dock to make sure our crews get to and from the barge, fuel and supplies get transferred cleanly and safely every day, and just making sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Sometimes they sleep on the boat on the lake for us, and they're always ready to work at a moment's notice. I've worked with a few of these guys for over 8 years, and it's always a pleasure. Arief, Ariefin, Arman, and a special thanks to Bahtiar, Lorenz, and most especially Sinyo Rio- we could not do this project without you. Last night we finished our first hole at Site 3, and with only 3 drilling shifts left, we'll try for one more hole all the way to bedrock. Wish us luck!
