SOON TO BE REPEATED

Post by Ben Dover » Sun Mar 03, 2013 11:21 am

It's 50F out this afternoon Spring is around the corner, and I can't wait to repeat this scene.
PM is a ritual and can be enjoyable.

It won't be long now, March is coming. This is the remaining snow as of today. In 10 more days it will be one year since the pics of the Jeep and CCKW were taken.
I can't wait to wake up my MV's and perform some good old US Army PM.

It's official! Spring is here, the snow still looks the same across my field 3 weeks later, but the mud dried out enough on April 10th and my M-38A1 took me for a spin. After a long difficult winter, an MV ride is good for what ails ya. MB and CCKW will get a breath of fresh air this weekend.

It took an extra 6 weeks to repeat this event in 2014. I owe it to the Easter Bunny.

I thought spring was here last Saturday. It was 75 out. Then it snowed again Monday night, and it's only 57 out this afternoon. Mother Nature is a tease!
Is it true real Jeeps have flat fenders?

Easter Sunday, 2015, and winter is still with us 2-3" of snow overnite and 3' of snow still in the field just like the February 2014 photo above. My fleet is chomping at the bit.

USA 201002900 hit the road at 8PM tonite, Spring is officially here, it started in about 10 Seconds after not being started since November 11. There's nothing like the kick of a well tuned M-38A1.
