thanks for the video, Ryan. I usually take a lot of pictures, but for some reason didn't do that this year.
Guess I'll just have to recall from memory.

ps - I've been looking at TMM and TM designs for the Peerless and HiVi drivers, and tossing around some ideas. hmmm. . .

Well I never...

Lookie what showed up right outside our gate. Funny though, the Children's Wish Foundation said it was going to be wrecked and sold for parts.

I don't get it. Is that your old truck? Never thought you'd see it again?

indeed - Cal, feeling a bit nostalgic are ya?

Like I told Sue the other day - whatever the charity / good cause - once you donate the disposition is up to the recipient.

Yes after thinking about it, it should have been obvious that the Children's Foundation wasn't going to do the wrecking but that it was sold to a wrecker who realized it was still a fine roadworthy truck.

Yes Ryan. Here it is loaded up and heading off a couple years back. The funny thing is, it showed up just feet away from where you see it on the truck. What are the chances of that?

Chances seem oddly slim. Maybe someone trying to entice you to want your truck back and make a sale

Well, apparently the likelihood is 100% - at least once .

Ryan, many thanks for the video. I wasn't able to attend this year, but watching it brought back happy memories. Hoping that it works out next time!
