On the other hand, there are a ton of new maps to get lost on.
in my experience the tanks that normally get boned in the match making is the light tanks (scouts), but it may also be a function of it being spring break right now too.

A while back someone (Ed, was it you?) asked me to take a picture of my new WoT T-shirt.

Well, I didn't have batteries for the camera, and I also wanted to wait until I could get a shot at the beach (since I'm down here in south Florida) for a little bit better shot.

I think I beat that.

How about the shirt, my motorcycle, and an American tank?



Helmet hair - what little there is left - but a better picture of the shirt:



The front of the tank with the turret in the traveling position, taken from the left seat of a ship's anti-aircraft gun. The shape of the hull's front of this M-60 reminds me of the front of T110E5 and T110E4 hulls in the game:



I took this one just for those of you who used to be a little confused about shooting a tank in its side in the tracks' area... note the sloped armor:



Info just like in WoT:





One of the whole tank:



Front of the turret, rear of the hull in case anyone wanted a close-up:



I just got back from a camping trip up in the Kissimmee prairie area. I learned a lot, saw a lot, and realize I'm living in the wrong place.

Some pictures from that trip: http://davidhanny.smugmug.com/Motorc...2744&k=2c4BBM4

Now you have a t-shirt to match with the voice.

Like I wrote earlier, the medium is the smallest medium I've seen in a while. I usually wear mediums because the average t-shirt size's true fit has grown along with the American population's waistline (but I still don't think you can tell I have in inside-the-waistband holster and a Smith & Wesson under it from that distance picture).

So I ended up with an actual underwear-shirt instead of one I'd wear out and about. I wore it for the +300 miles of motorcycle touring and camping here, but that's because it was under my motorcycling gear, and would have been cool enough (since it's tight) to wear if the temps were hot. Instead, the temps remained cooler.

My daughter pointed out that I'm wearing the same shirt. She thought it was pretty cool. I'm a bit disturbed by it, but I'll get over it.

I'm not wearing mine right now if it's any consolation (I hope yours fits you better)

I did not head out ever thinking I'd find a tank 100 miles from home, but then there it was. I'm pretty sure some of the country folk saw me and must have thought me a bit strange with me trying to take photos of my shirt and a tank. Though out in that territory I was deemed strange for not being on a Harley anyhow. In fact, like, huge truck coming over to 'tag' me during a pass (in a passing zone, at a fully reasonable speed) back on farm roads after he saw what I was riding when I was stopped on the side taking a photo.

...

You don't drive into Americana on a Jap bike and expect to be welcomed.

I run my premium T-127 fairly regularly.

I had heard they were running small so I got an XL. I usually wear Med or Lg. It fits great.

I've found that dirtbikes get a mulligan since there aren't any made here(at least none that most people have heard of). SE Michigan is pretty big on "Made in the USA". Most people just wonder if it is legal.

Great pix BTW.

Thanks.

There is a difference between some places in the USA, and if it's gonna be on the road in central or north FL... it better be American made it seems. It's just a whole different type of America, and it may have to do with it being so conservative and such.

Especially so on the prairie.

I could get more into it, but it would take a dissertation, and this isn't the thread for it. (I'm looking for even a link to describe what I've just seen, and that which my father is collecting a history of, yet I don't see anything on the 'net indicating the history and way of life out where I just was - it's incredible. )

I consider tonight a success, mounted new gun and forgot to buy ammo. Started battle empty in a tank destroyer

Still got a ram kill in before I got killed. Thats right, a no ammo kill!
