Jaques Gruring & Jean-Louis,

living it up

Mohammad Bezmani, Bahrain

Base stations could be extremely lonely places. Pretty dangerous, too! Iran.

Tent was well secured;

needed to be.

Not possible to find anywhere lonelier, you think? 

Then how about this sand bank off Bahrain!

Hope that job didn't last too long.

Fortunately, there were better places. Slightly.

Deira tower, Dubai '71

Congo/Angola border, 1971

Qatar 1972

Re-supply could pose problems Bird Island, Saudi Arabia

Especially if the water was fairly shallow.

But occasionally, other

means became available.

Setting up, too, could pose problems. You'd have expected better in Italy

Larry Slagle somewhere or other.
