Mike Redfern that name is familiar to me also. Didn't you replace me in the dispatchers job when I started driving that old loadstar you mentioned? Man that tractor was lame! Drove that piece of crap all over hell up there. Also made many dump runs to B'port in the pac-mor garbage truck! about the truck rolling incident on 395, the truck belonged to Harry Lauderdale but he wasn't in it that night. A guy named Gene Colter was driving and a Sgt. named Mark Wolford was in the middle,and I was riding "shotgun". We had borrowed Harry's truck to go to Reno and on the way back at about 0430 Colter falls asleep at the wheel and runs off the left side of the road, we went airborne for about 100 feet before hitting a boulder head-on and flipping the truck end over end. HELL of a wreck! Took me what seemed like an hour to figure out which way was up! At least no-one seriously hurt ( I got a bloody nose)
WE caught a ride back to base and got the wrecker from the motorpool and went and drug the truck back on it's wheels then towed it straight to the junk yard. Harry took the news pretty well, all things considered. He had good insurance since the truck was practically brand-new. I have pics somewhere of the truck still upside down and me sitting on it. I'll try to find them and scan/post them if I can. Got a million memories of my time @ Pickle Meadows, loved that place.

The military channel (195 on Dish) has a show called "Mountain Marines" this Friday morning (3am Mtn time) about a ''training facility in California that exposes Marines to an environment similar to that of Afghanistan and northern Iraq".
Obviously about MWTC.

I am looking at the guide again and there is another MWTC at 6pm Saturday (Mtn time), again on the military channel. "Marine Corps Survival School" is the title. There is a part 2 at 7 but I am not sure if that is MWTC or not.

I remember they had a small airport in Bridgeport, but the sign off the main drag pointing to the airport had a picture of a 747 on it. I don't think they landed many of those there.
