I always bring my .30 cal to events like those. I always get to the front of the line at the porta-potty really quickly.

Ah, sorry, can't make it out to be honest, just like your palms are 'floating' there. Hope you're getting on OK, if I remember rightly you got a bad knock in Kosovo?

Choctaw it was great to meet you and your family.... that 30 cal is amazing up close... You have to see it to really appreciate the level of craftmanship.

Joe that was the WWII weekend in Reading.. the Gathering of Mustangs & Legends (http://www.gml2007.com/)in Colubus Ohio in September is a once in a lifetime thing man.. at least at this stage in the game. The opportunity to see all these legends (http://www.gml2007.com/l_attending.asp) up close & personal is fading fast.. most of these folks are in thier 80s... and reality being what it is... it is worth it to me. I already have my vacation scheduled..... If you can be there... even if it is a scarifice of time and money.... do so. It may be your last chance to touch history. I see Yeager is off the list... I hope he is well.

That's really cool you guys ran into each other.Too bad Tejas isn't alot closer to PA,or I'd have given it a shot.

The 1919A4 came out great! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I looked all over for you guys. Unfortunately, I missed ya. I left the house at 10am, took the usual shortcuts and still got jammed in the jam. Hit the backup at the 2 mile to exit sign. Didn't get in the gate until 12:55pm. It was hot Saturday....
