Tent camping area at the fair grounds
 
When I arrived it was 106 there. It was like riding with an 80 mph hair dryer in your face. Tent camping was going to suck. At midnight the shower line was 200 deep.

The Polish display is very incomplete- no horses! Never the less an excellent snapshot of ww2 era equipment. I'd loved to have been there myself, but a bloody long ride from here!:ricky

Wife: Malta ? Isn't that an island in the Mediterranean?
Husband: "___"

Russian Army
 
When I asked the commander of the Russian Army display where they were from he stated Albany. I replied Albany where? He came back with Albany, N.Y. Well I live outside of Albany and had never heard of such a unit. I was shocked. They have a web site www.3rdriflediv.org also www.myspace.com3rdriflebrigade
