Typed information accompanying negative: Hauling a load back to camp: Bob Sutton driving the cat, the crew sits on top of the crates. There is a congenial spirit of cooperation at these camp activities. A small amount of beer was included among the supplies which lasted a few days, otherwise the camp was dry that summer. It was a year later that homemade raisin wine led to the events in whicdh Bennie Lightsy, the camp manager was shot and killed. Bennie worked on T-3 as a Weather Bureau employee for three months in the spring of 1969. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll F B&W negatives - June paradrop, 1969.

Typed information accompanying negative: Third load: The third load was similar to the first two and the parachutes landed on target on the runway. For most of the crew, these paradrops were the only contact with the outside world for four months.

Typed information accompanying negative: The USGS living trailer: The trailer had bunk beds at one end, with space for four residents. The other end contained a small darkroom. It was a comfortable place to live. The space equipment cannister is on the floor in the foreground of the picture. After the probe was lost, I had hopes of assembling a complete package of equipment and resuming the casts. There was a spare probe and equipment cannister, but I could not locate a recording device sensitive enough to record thermistor readings. This attempt to reconstruct the assembly lasted approximately two weeks before I realized that it would not be possible with the equipment on T-3. In retrospect, if I had made a radio...
