For a California native, winter came as a major shock. A huge storm knocked out the second ford, so a company of Army Engineers set up camp to repair the river crossing that had cut us off from the top, build the world's highest HAWK shithouse and kitchen, and swell the population of Hwaak-Ni to over 100 GIs. B 7/5 shared the Admin Area with an ASA company, whose neighboring mountain was even higher than Mae Bong. In center is my downstairs hooch, seen from the shower room. Our custom in winter was to begin our day with a stroll to the shower wrapped only in a towel.
