Hey there John - great name by the way, we must be brothers by different mothers or something. I was at Pickel Meadows in '78-79, TAD from Pendleton. I was an E5, instructor and served under Captain Nick Allen and Lt. Chapman, and of course, the great Lt.Col John Guy. I went by JW though Colonel Guy called me Moose. The base was a lot different then, with Quonset huts for us and GP tents down below for the troops. It was great duty. They let me extend 3 times up there but in the end I couldn't get permanent orders so I got out in August of '79, lived in the Bridgeport/Walker communites for a few years, married a local girl and then moved up to Nevada and then to the Northwest...

I was indeed a proud member of the Clampers (insert donkey bray here).
I don't remember meeting you - but I fried a lot of brain cells at the Tules, the Sportsman, The Pinenut Lodge and of course at the E-club on base, so you can forgive me...

Was there late 1979 from 8th Mt Bn CLNC cold weather training and back again around 1983 still in those wooden frames with old tent covers on them. Rember the most walking to the chow hall and not being able to breath for a while before eating.

That would be 1stSgt Daniels, Lloyd G I think. He sure loved to go to Bishop. How about them Mule Days.
Best deal there was the blood drive.. bus trip to Carson City or Reno, give blood, get all the bowling, and booze you could drink. Bus would take you back that night or the next day, depending on how much fun you were having.

Geez you can never forget the elevation, you could always tell the newbies at pickel meadows you'd be out of breath just going up the stairs from the PX to the head shed. Remember you even got an extra minute or two on your 3 mile run time. I worked in the S-1 from Jan 80 to Spring of 81.
Great place, great stories, how about getting out of your quonset hut and fighting 3 feet of snow to go take a **** or shave in the morning!
Hetzman and Easter yup that was a bad story, Sure never seen any official reports on that one. Has anyone heard from Chuck Arnone, PA boy I think, quite the characher along with his friend John Clark (wasn't it).
The names are nice to see I think I was in the quonset hut with Dan Guthrie. I can't remember others, I hung around with Jamie Perna he was a corpsman, we headed off to Topaz Lodge and what was the name of the bar that Carol Baker had just north of Topaz lodge?
Wow what memories, I'll have to look for that facebook page.
