I was at this site about a year age, I think it was under control of the Badlands Nat. Park service.

It was a very informitave tour only mistake I told them about was they had T-II included with Atlas and T-I as having an hour loading time before launch.

I gave them this and the T-II Muz web sights for info.

The Nat Pk web is http://www.nps.gov/mimi nice info and a short movie.

After being their I realize that our T-II kitchen was bigger than your hole underground area.

The Reagan facilities are located near Cooperstown ND. O-00 is located just north of Cooperstown right off of Hwy 45. LF N-33 is just east of Cooperstown on Hwy 200. The site(s) Bedbug mentions are near Rapid City SD off of I-90.

I was part of the crew removing components out of O-00 for dismantlement. I wish the historical society moved quicker, we could have left the MAF/LCC/LCEB in as near operational configuration as possible thus eliminating a lot of work for them.
