I can say that this story is worthy of the Enquirer.
I have worked at NTS many times. The equipment they have was thrashed when they shut down in '92. They are still using this thrashed equipment. The
mining gear - which this drill rig is - is third-world thrashed. Leaks all over, unsafe, not worth the expense to maintain, much less repair.
Regarding those trucks - the organization I work for had first pick. We took the cream of the crop in '93. They were thrashed when we got them. We
won't take them off base - it's a liability thing. Hit a civilian vehicle with one of these funky clunkers, gauranteed lawsuit. If they get a flat
we scrap them because they aren't worth putting used tires on.
Copiers? Computers? 1989 technology. 486es.
There are warehouses full of older TVs, electronic test equipment and machine tools I'd like to get my hands on. But anything that wears as it works
is beyond worn out over there.
