May 11, 1942: "This observation post was visited on May 2nd. Has a 50-foot log tower with 14x14 Aladdin cabin. Needs a combination heating and cook stove for winter use. The garage can be fixed up for sleeping quarters and the cab in the tower used for living quarters. Tower is pretty shaky, however, and the O.P. is subjected to heavy winds. During windstorms the tower is not suited for airplane spotting. Observers have encountered no trouble in keeping the cabin warm but state that it leaks around the windows during driving rainstorms. Double windows will quite likely eliminate this fault." (Inspection report from W.N. Parke, AWS Inspector, to James Frankland, USFS)
