Great article. I just emailed Vance and invited them to visit our area on their trip next year. Our local WWII history just might tie in nicely with the gentleman whom they purchased their Jeep from.

That's awesome Hutch! I'm sure that Will and Vance will be thrilled to meet with you, and I'd enjoy hearing more about your connection with the gentleman they purchased the Willys Jeep from so keep Will and us posted.

Good articles. I've printed it out so I can read it more this weekend between scuba dives at Bonne Terre Mine.

So, will we see this in print any time soon? I usually print them out too, but I would subscribe to a nice color print version when it becomes available. Just don't do it in red and green for us red/green color blind folks.

Here is a very brief history of "Hanford."

Hanford History
Hanford, White Bluffs, and Richland were small farming towns founded between 1905 and 1910. The towns had a combined population of 1500. Richland's 1940 census numbered its citizens at 200.

In 1941, the United States entered World War II. Manhattan Engineering District was formed in June 1942 to build industrial plants to make Plutonium-239 and Uranium-235. In December of that year, Col. Frankin T. Matthias scouted the western United States to find a suitable site for the plutonium production facilities. Matthias reported Hanford's site was "far more favorable in virtually all respects than any other." In January 1943 the decision was made to build the production facilities at Hanford. Citizens were made to leave their homes. In the 30 months between groundbreaking in March 1943 and the end of the war in 1945, and for a cost of $230 million, workers built 554 nonresidential buildings, including B, D, and F reactors, T, B and U processing canyons, 64 underground tanks, fuel fabricating buildings in the 300 area, 386 miles of roadway, 158 miles of railroad lines, and a new city of Richland which could house 17,500.

Plutonium from Hanford's reactors went into the Trinity test bomb and into the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. Japan surrendered unconditionally within a week.


I thought that since the gentleman flew aircraft in the Pacific Theater, that a visit here might fit in.

Hutch, very interesting info and I know that Will/Vance would be VERY interested in this. I've copy/pasted it to an email to them so I'm sure they'll be happy to read about it and plan on it on their future trip.

As to the inquiries regarding JPFreek going print, we are certainly planning on doing so. The original plan was to do so in early 2008 but we're pushing it back to late 2008 or the first issue of 2009 in an effort to really promote the magazine big-time next year at SEMA 2007, Easter Jeep Safari 2008, and several other big trips we have planned next year. We'll keep you posted once the print version comes closer to reality as we have already had proofs made and the quality is phenomenal (much better than any other pub on the market in this realm).

Paul, keep me posted on this scuba trip and have fun.

-Frank

Oh I'll be having fun, but the water is a bit cold at 58 degrees year round.
