Yeah Ray .. the long story is that it is a truck bought at auction by a local salvage yard (literally within eyesight of the Tag) and he called our station asking us to check it out and let him know what he had and if we were interested .. the Chief and I went over and were checking her out .. 1985 Grumman 1250 two-stage in "parade-ready" condition that had been reported to not have passed her pump test (:: cough ::: gotanewtruck :: cough ::) .. looks like some guys down near Fayetteville are going to buy her for a satellite station .. anyway .. both of us noticed the safety had blown off but neither of us put it back on and to add insult to injury (or pile stupid on top of stupid) the ladder had been moved rear-ward to allow access to a hatch for inspection .. one thing led to another and I made the blood sacrifice .. lol .. I also put that frakkin pad back in place before I left as well .. just a great idiot-moment that left an impression .. lol ..

.. anyway .. this past week some guys came up to look at her so we got to hook her up and run her through the paces .. beautiful mid-ship layout and strong pump .. the truck needs a tune up but other than a couple of drains leaking there is nothing wrong with that truck .. just over 2300 miles and something like 200 hours on her .. for most departments she's a no-go because she's an open cab design .. but a real beauty .. she has had a very easy life ..

Beginning to think that I pick bad tags. My Virginia Tag is also a week old.

No... The weather has been crappy....
The VA tag is slow moving... Especially on the north side of 81.
