    The only thing not frozen in time was gas prices, I was shocked at $5.29, which was 50 to 80 cents higher than the rest of the state. Lee Vining was about as bad.

    However I was surprised to see Kens Tackle shop still there.

    Gentlemen, I will make you all feel young. I was one of the Recon Marines that went to Pickel Meadows when there were just a few Quonset huts to live in and no base at all. 1973-1975, 30-90 days TAD and no personal vehicles. 23 miles to town. MSgt G.L Sydow.

    On my way to Japan I went to Pickel Meadow, never been so cold in my life. First night there 25 below 0 sleeping on the ground under a shelter half, never saw snow in my life. Next morning broke off all shelter pegs even with the ground, never saw frozen ground either, had no shelter from there till done, had to improvise. canteen stayed frozen the whole time as were the rations. Carried everything in a rubberized bag on a packboard.Mickeymouse boots worked well, using the slit trench was a pain, a cold pain in the ass, lots guys had a big scab for a nose, had to drag the guy that was supposed to relieve me on guard out of his sleeping bag. Those are a few of the memories of 1955 at Pickel Meadow
