Iceman72 Posted May 12, 2008 Report Share Posted May 12, 2008 Bent Horn, Cameron Island, NWT you were issued one black bag a week to crap in ,which you had to put into a 5 gal bucket, that was kept behind a an old grey army blacket in the corner. As soon as you were finished your business, you would quickly tie the top up and put it out side on the rails of the sled you slept in, the bed would be best discribed as an open coffin, there were six people sleeping in an area maybe best for two. Beds stacked three high, when you slid into the bunk there was not enough room for you to even lay on your side, as the bunk above you was that low. I was there just short of three weeks before I knew that the cook was female, she never had the hood of here parka down while cooking, plus she handed out the black bags.When you had a coffee or tea you always had a rainbow on top as they used the same truck for hauling water for the camp as they used for hauling the fuel for the camp.
