Profile Information

Lansing, MI
Where have you lived and worked?
I've mostly lived in Michigan, but also spent time years ago, in Wyoming, California and Florida.
About Me:
I'm looking for people I once worked with in Yellowstone Park back in 1969. I worked for Hamilton Stores in Mammoth. My nickname was, and still is, Stir.

I've found several folks I worked with that summer, and we are looking for more. We had our 40th reunion in August, 2009. Seven of us attended, and we had a wonderful time.
Last Seasonal Job:
Summer 1994 & 1995: Manager, Grand Traverse Lighthouse
Favorite Seasonal Job:
My favorite was working in Yellowstone Park the summer of 1969.
Dream Job:
I've recently gone back to work, on a part time basis, in my former profession. Three months ago I would say that I was retired. Now I'm not sure how to describe my situation.

A funny thing happened on the way to Tower Fall.

Posted on October 19, 2010 at 8:00pm 2 Comments

Tower Fall, in Yellowstone Park.....back in 1969, my buddy Nake worked there for Hamilton Stores, while I worked in Hamilton's Mammoth Accounting Office. We were just passing through Yellowstone National Park when we saw a "Help Wanted" sign. We applied, and got jobs, and went on to have a great summer. Uh, the personal director (I don't think they really had a HR Department in those days) didn't seem to much care for us though, and told us there was no way he'd let us work in the same…

Hey Stir,

I think I read about you and your YPSS reunion in the Livingston paper this fall. I worked for YPSS for a good while, starting in 1972. Thanks for sharing your story.

the Calvary managed the park (1886-1916) and Mammoth was their permanent post, at first they built Camp Sheridan, and then they built Fort Yellowstone. They built tunnels that contected the main buildings. Some fellow employees found a secret way in, and a bunch of us went "tunneling", it was cool. I'm am not at liberty to divulge the location of the secret entrance, for fear of a fate worse then

Stir - I worked for YPC at West Thumb in 1969. It was an excellent adventure. There was snow in West Thumb in June that year.
