All,


Was shared a link to this story. I am still working my way through it and what it means.


I would have liked to have seen pictures in the article. Here is the link:

fleetway,


I hear that, Lord help you if they forgot to bring the mod liners!! Then there was the early morning rain, when the sun warmed the outside of the mod and the frost would melt and rain down......ahhhhh, the good old days!!

Yup. I spent 6 weeks, 100 miles south of Yellowknife, in tents, on a lake, looking for Russian Satellite parts. The warmest we got was -25C. I swore I would never be that cold again.
