Satellite view of campsite and airstrip

This certainly brings back memories. This was our campsite in 1975. The Conoco airstrip is 2 km to the northeast. The strip is still in use today. If you follow the road to the northwest for 9 km you’ll eventually come to a much more recent Conoco campsite. When these shots were taken is unknown.

Occasionally we’d get a day off and spend it in camp. You can see why we looked forward to piling into the helicopters and flying to the beach on the Indian Ocean.
