I use to be stationed there (1986-1987) while I was in the Navy.  I worked at the OB Hill Water Plant,  the (then new) downtown Water Plant, & for a while in the Galley building’s boiler room.[/font:cegjolzx]

  Is the now old admin building still there, if so I also wonder if the the Winter Over Planks are still displayed on the wall?  They had the names of those who wintered over.[/font:cegjolzx]

  I wish while I was there I had taken more detailed photos of where I worked and lived.[/font:cegjolzx]

  I have my cruise books for the summer support phase (1986-87) and the winter over phase (1987).[/font:cegjolzx]

  Are they still using the OB Hill Plant?  Is the Hot Tub still in use at the OB Hill Living quarters?  Is the Sauna still in use at the Fire House?  [/font:cegjolzx]

   By the way the last time I looked at your webcam the view of the town was blury, but the bottom of the container edge was almost in focus.[/font:cegjolzx]

  That’s it for now.[/font:cegjolzx]
