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!

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

Great pics! Thanks for sharing. I imagine those guys from the Poland "camp" were smokin' hot in battle dress.

Don't mean to hi-jack your thread,,, but for everybody that was there in July,,,,just imagine that whole fairgrounds under 8-10' of water the past few days.
At least it's cooler now for the clean-up.
