After drilling to 12,180 feet we are tripping out
It was a big team effort in the cuttings lab at 4:30 a.m. this morning as the students processed cuttings samples collected through the night.

After drilling to 12,180 feet we are tripping out of the hole to change the bit again. We'll be back on bottom and drilling tomorrow morning. Although a significant change in lithology occurred at 12,120 ft, we do not appear to have crossed the San Andreas fault yet.
