Regarding your question about the numbers of tall white children
present at the Indian Springs base... The best I can do is to
describe the number of children that I personally saw.
As described in my books, The Teacher had one daughter. When she
came with the children there were at most three equivalent in
age to human children in perhaps the second or third grade. They
were her daughter and two little boys.
On the day that I describe in
Book One, in the chapter entitled
"Tumbleweeds" when I was playing "catch the wind" with the
tumbleweeds that the children were throwing up into the wind, I
saw The Teacher with somewhere between 12 and 20 children of all
ages from grade school through high school out playing in the
sunshine. Because of the distance, the heat waves and the
changes in elevation due to the ridges out to the east of my
Range Three Weather Shack, I couldn't get an accurate count.
On the morning described in
Book Three in the chapter entitled
"The End of the Innocence" when there were at least 200-300 Tall
White adults lined up along the base of the mountains 1 - 1.25
miles east of me over by the ammunition bunker, there were, I
estimate, 35 to 75 tall white children of all ages from grade
school through high school spread out in the crowd.
(Along with somewhere between 35 & 75 scout craft parked out in
the section of the desert that I named "The parking area.” Since
the scout craft could hold anywhere from 5 to 20 individuals
depending on the model, there could easily have been many more
Tall Whites present than the low numbers that I estimate. There
were so many Tall Whites and scout craft that I wasn't able to
accurately count them all.)
On that morning, as you probably remember, I also describe
seeing a small group of human USAF Generals, high-ranking
officers, and 2 or 3 high-ranking U.S. Government officials in
civilian clothes also standing in among the Tall Whites.
In Book Three, in the opening chapter entitled "Winter Roads,"
when I got a good solid look at the damaged side of the large
deep space craft as it was sliding by me, I could see the faces
of many children looking out the windows that were positioned
along the middle row of windows and physically located near the
back (undamaged) section of the craft. I estimate that there
were perhaps 50-75 Tall White Children on board of all
ages from grade school through high school.
On that occasion, I could also see a lone tall white woman
sitting in among them. She was an older woman (their Teacher, I
suppose), and she also was looking out at me. I shall always
remember the emotional look on her face. It was one of intense
relief. She couldn't have said "Thanks" in a more meaningful
manner if she had said so with words. She had obviously been
taken to her emotional limits protecting the children after the
accident had happened.
Since the deep space craft usually arrived on schedule during
sundown on the night of the full moon, the number of children at
the base probably fluctuated somewhat.
The deep space craft came in three general sizes.
The largest size just barely
made it through the hanger entrance.
The smallest size was about half
the size of the largest.
The in-between size was about
half-way in size between the smallest and the largest.
The number of deep space craft in
the hanger varied from month to month. Some months I had no idea
how many were at the base. Even on months when I paid careful
attention, it was very easy for deep space craft to arrive and
later leave (on the night of the new moon) without my seeing
them. However, on some months I did personally see at least 1
large and 3 small craft in the hangar which I estimate is
equivalent to 2.5 large craft.
From this I estimate that some months there could have easily
been 2.5 times 75 = 200+ children of all ages on the base at any
Although this number seems to me to be somewhat on the high side
(some months I only saw 1 small craft arrive, which would
translate into only 25-40 Tall White children of all ages) there
were clearly enough facilities for that many children (200+)
along with a corresponding number of adults.
Remember the different scout craft hangers and the main living
quarters were underground and obviously had substantial
