Damn, I passed two different accident scenes, and a structure fire while out today, but, I was in the truck!

(this isn't a grab but rather part of the ongoing search)

From breakfast today...

....not a fire truck but I've been assured it is fully functional -> an old wheel around rig.

New book in stores soon:

"How to Kill a Thread in 7 Days" by 60pan

Just kidding..I'm looking everytime I'm out so I can get in the game. Tempted to ask my daughter's
boyfriend who's a volunteer firefighter to meet me someplace with the firetruck!

Brb...but before I go....

Yesterday the wife and I were riding around. It was her birthday and she wanted cupcakes. We were parked downtown at the cupcake shop and along comes a fire truck. And there it went but I could hear it stop within a couple blocks.

The wife looked at me and said..."OK go for it". To which I hopped on the bike and went looking. But as soon as I found it the truck pulled off. I chased that dang thing all across town and back to its station. Unfortunately I couldn't get my phone out and get a photo while moving through traffic.

It kind of hillarious actually.

I ended up back at the cupcake shop and the wife asked if I got the tag. I explained what happened and she just said "Oh Honey."

...foiled again.

The local VFD hanger was all closed up. Firetrucks were either bedded down or out on a call.

Dang. Forgot to grab this on the way home.

I'll be happy to throw a file tag up if everyone just wants to see it gone...

Heck no, its been fun.

I passed a truck on it said "State Fire" what ever that means. Truck was white with red letters, no gumball machine on top.

Did that with my cheapshit digital camera for another tag game today.

Admittedly, I pre-planned it and had it accessible and powered up.

47 was the needed tag shot:

Wow, simply awesome picture of the trucks. Your red bike really goes well too. I can picture a chrome fire axe strapped to the side of your sidecar.

GRAB!


Now for the next tag...

Find me some sort of "Pig"! Any form of the word pig, like piglet, piggy, pigsty, pig, with some sort of adjective, like funny, dirty, happy, flying....

...I saw 3 firetrucks out and about this morning. One was on a call. Another was being used for driver training in the cones course at the county Bus facility. And the third pulled right up next to me at a stop light then turned into a Kroger shopping center parking lot.
