Reunion-goers from the Crestline era

AIS was located in Crestline from its inception in the mid-1970s to early 1985. The mappers and support staff who worked up there formed strong bonds: during late nights hunched over light tables; while going out for meals and drinks at Crestline's many fine (?) establishments; and after dealing with the fog, ice, rocks and snow (and tire chains) that were a part of mountain driving.

Reuniting this bunch after years and decades of lost contact was really something special, as you can see from the photos below.
