    You should have told people the man shaking your hand was the commanding officer of the 82nd CAB Colonel Bricker.

    You guys are great. The military gets enough flak it is really good that someone cares enough to do something like this to take the edge of deployment off. I just wish that I could have participated. Living in Mexico right now.

    That is Tarhell Smokers Toy Hauler and Competition Rig. IT has a rather impressive kitchen and living space.

    The two FEC 100's in another picture are Roy's too. He drops the back gate and rolls them out to win a bunch of competitions.
  • "Sparky""Sparky" Posts: 6,024
    You got it Tim,that's a modified "toy hauler" that belongs to this guy ;)

    Supportthetroops026.jpg

    It is basically a fifth wheel trailer with a bed over the tongue,and a kitchen in the back.It has a commercial style sink on one side,and stove on the other.It was a great set-up,but I didn't get any inside pics :blush: Here's the smokers that he had on the back ;)

    Sparky,

    It was great getting to meet you! Of course, we promised the colonel that we wouldn't tell, but hell wasn't that great that night when we took that Blackhawk up for a spin, lol! They never even missed her! Dude, it was great. Hope to see you again.

    Thanks for sharing the pics and thanks to you all for doing this. You should be proud of this for the rest of your life. I know that those soldiers appreciate the effort.

    I can't express how disappointed I am that I couldn't be there to assist.

    I'm not going to mention where, but something like that happened. Someone was taken for a ride at a demo. She sent a letter to the big boss how nice the demo was and the ride was very exciting. The pilot was shortly after driving a 4 wheeled ground vehicle.
  • "Sparky""Sparky" Posts: 6,024
    Thanks Todd,but my memory is very poor :blush: I do know some of them,but The Whiz has a list in his last post,which names all of the cookers/helpers ;) Give me a call tomorrow and we can talk about it ;) I'll be in bed early tonight(I hope) :whistle:
