We had some ex football and basketball players in our company, they must have been miserable. The spring of 63 our generator was out again, so was our radio. The guys couldn’t believe it was possible, they talked about it the rest of the tour. At midnight chow we got all the night shift plus all the drunks. We had a regular bunk a dresser a space heater and anything else we wanted to throw in there. Not barrels of fuel just the fuel. Sometimes it’s kind of hard to get my thought’s typed down.
The spring of 63 our generator was out again, so was our radio. It was built above ground I think it had 2 or 3 buildings linked together plus a radio antenna. You stayed where ever you were until the storm was over. It was dug straight into the ice cap. The sergeant out there had been in Germany and talked about that a lot There was a tall thin guy that played the guitar all the time. Some one flew over and reported our Camp on fire. Some one used to come out to repair our equipment, think his name was Williams.
There are times in your live when your really happy and enjoying yourself but you don’t realize it until years later.
Let’s Play – Sly 3 – Episode 12
Two passenger seats in front, the motor was between the front seats. We had some ex football and basketball players in our company, they must have been miserable. I’ve got more information than I ever thought I had. The first thing you wanted to do was put your back to the wind, if you did that you would walk right out of Camp.
If you wanted to take a shower it was extra shoveling. All the side tunnels had air shafts and escape hatches. The storm could be a few hours, days, or weeks. Do any of you remember when the water lines at TUTO froze, and we had no running water until spring?
RobinSamse Postboksen – Episode 28
Were started making Molotov cocktails and set them off on the radio tower. You shoveled a lot of snow for a shower. We had a snowmelter, so you had to take your turn topside shoveling snow.
There were a few fights, but as I look back on it now I can’t believe we all got along as good as we did. When the first storm hit it flattened the hanger, everyone had a good laugh. If a storm blew up I slept roibnsamse my fart sack because the snow would come in every little crack in the hut. I can’t stay in this position any longer.
Never turning off a vehicles motor all winter Midnight requisions? We started to get and put out 60 lb. You first went to the fuel dump for gas and antifreeze.

TUTO west was on the way up from Thule. They had to evacuate it. Our rooms were about 8 x About the airforce was interested in putting radar sites out eposode the ice cap. The antifreeze was bright orange, if you got it on your cloths throw them away it never came out and had a horrible smell.
Do you think there still there? It’s a bigger story than I thought.
Some ;ostboksen flew over and reported our Camp on fire. Luckily it just missed his liver. I think they had a 4 foot tread and pulled cargo sleds or Wanigans.
You got in to the buildings through an escape hatch and down a ladder. It had a removable top not very air tight. We got coffee robunsamse 20lb.
During the winter the cooks slept in a hut attatched to the mess hall. Sometimes it’s kind of hard to get my thought’s typed down. You’ve helped bring back some great memories. When you parked your vehicle in the winter you never turned the motor off.
