Some of my best memories were of fishing in the sail boats with my dad Harold Monsen in the late 40s and early 50s. I was happy though when Winn Brindal Gave us one of the first convertions.Then we towed a couple of sail boats out to the west marker so the monkey boats didn't have to pull such a long string of boats.
It was quite and adveture in 1952 after Gashland consruction finished the road to King Salmon and 6 or 8 of us kids would get under a blanket in the back of Oscars pickup and go to the base for a movie. The cold didn't seem to bother us at all.
IN the mid 40s because of a tidle wave threat we evacuated the village and went to King Salmon by dog sled as that was the only way to leave town except by plane. At that time a lot of the guys belonged to the Tundra Flying Club. There were a bunch of good people in that bunch.
I think I've rambled enough for now. Norval Monsen

Hi Charlie, I worked for you for a short time one summer....the year of the valdez. I was the fat girl from Colorado.

You were old and cranky then. I hope you are still....

I lived behind the Red Dog in a trailer that was sinking into the tundra. And I remember there was a dispatcher named Sis...

Good memories....
