In the North-West Territories of Canada, gassing up a plane often meant landing on a dirt airstrip and pumping fuel out of 45-gallon drums. This is what we were doing here, at Fort Simpson, in the summer of 1955. The Dakota (DC-3) was one of the planes I used to travel around the North setting up and servicing Shoran survey stations.
