After some successful horse trading for building materials we started our wooden hooch construction in February 1969

The total construction of the Casper BOQ and BEQ & hooches only took two months to complete

Casper Crew Chief SP5 Jeff Fales supervised all of the construction during this project in 1969

The first BEQ hooch is completed & compared to our old tents, they looked like a Holiday Inn to us

Work quickly begins on the second BEQ hooch in mid-February 1969. Things are looking good

Casper Crew Chief SP5 Ned Costa takes a break & poses in the doorway of his soon to be new room

With the second BEQ all finished, "Ghost Town" takes on a whole new look by the end of February
