Remembrances of My Life as a Geophysical Observer with Petty Geophysical Working in the Amazon Jungle in Peru in the early 1970's

I recently ran across some photos that I took in the early 1970's when I worked for Petty Geophysical in the amazon Jungle in Peru. From 1973 to 1975 I worked as a Geophysical Observer managing an eighty man geophysical team and running the instruments as we did a large scale geophysical survey exploring for oil. It seems that the me of almost 50 years ago is another person altogether. I remember being him and I remember how I felt in my first really challenging job and how I responded. Yet although I remember being him, he is another person, someone I remember being. I decided to just put some of these photos on the web. I don't have time now to label each one or write a detailed article. I will just leave these photos up and write some captions for them as I have time and the spirit moves me.
