Life of Team BICEP is never dull. After fixing some issues after the latest power outage we were in a celebratory mood and paid the hardworking SPT gang a visit.

Team BICEP: Yuki, Cynthia, and I

All of us got really exited about using the “Men Lift” to go up to the receiver cabin.

At one point I counted seven of us up there, while Tom was actually trying to get some work done.

Since it was Yuki’s last day we decided to get a tour of ARO. I haven’t been over there in years. On the way in we stopped at the Ladies Powder Room.

Later we got a chance to fill some sample flasks with the cleanest air on Earth.

During the tour I spotted a pair of halo watching glasses and gave them to Cynthia to try. In retrospect I am not sure if they weren’t just the latest incarnation of the toast meter.
