Thule Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 42 photos

Got my electronics start here with RCA on BMEWS (Ballistic Missile Early Warning System). Great pay working seven days a week about 500 miles from the North Pole. Not a nice place to visit; got down to -50 degrees F with winds sometimes up to 110 MPH. We laughingly refered to it as the "Last Resort."

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:GREAT MONEY for the 1960s.
  • Cons:Perpetual night from September to February with low temperatures and high winds!.
  • In a nutshell:I'd never go back!!!
  • Last visit to Thule: Dec 1968
