Alas, the Chippewa Boyz can't make it this year. Please hoist a tankard in our honor...not that we have much. Give Kevin a kiss for us to, eh.

I checked several things off my bucket list :

-Operating a CAT D-7
-Driving a series 5 Ward LaFrance, 2 Diamod T's and the Corbit Bridge truck back to Kevin's
-Getting a ride back to Kevin's in the M-26 WOW, espcially watching flames come out of the exhaust when it was slowing down
-Getting a ride in a LVT-4, and a GPA, plus whatever that thing was called that Captian Crank drove, what an adventure that was going over to Kevin's................smoke and all
-Getting a ride in a high speed tractor
-Climbing all over the BIG trucks

Hey Clint, I even drove Kevin's driving a half track

Hanging out with the Captian Crank, Jeff Jensen, Clint and Logan

Lighting up the night sky with the search light and watching planes fly thru it

being buzzed by the Texan trainers on the convoy

I will be next year.

It's a bummer I won't be able to make the show this year. We're doing an event for home schooled kids at Fort Snelling that weekend.

How about posting a schedule of events, an AAR, and a few photos so I can live vicariously through you?
