    Said to myself, if i get through this snow, I better get to the hospital, JUST in case!

    Look who we ran into.

    Louie said he is working on getting stronger.  Thankful for all the well wishes and for his Commander.  Who he loves very much.

    Louie, asked you all to take a part of your day to stop out.  he has plenty of magazines enjoys reading the neighborhood paper.  Please take time or make time to say hello.

    PS:  Member Looking for:

    42 GPW

     As far as the 42 GPW, I would like to put a Ford engine in it some day if I can find one.

    I have a January 45 Willys engine in it.  I need many parts for the Hercules JXD engine I am rebuilding for the Scout Car and lastly, need a 6 volt period correct voltage regulator.  Thanks for the assistance!

    See? I told you we'd do this!


    Still no camping. Except for Nathan the Jeepster (watch out for werewolves and land octopii). We are all old and weak.

    If you want to drive to casual dinner with that fabulous group known as Whomever-It-Is-What-Shows-Up, we will leave from Bizal's around 6:30 PM.


    Rolls and coffee show up around 8:00 AM. You?

    Sweet Shop excursion: estimated 10-10:30 AM departure for nearby Jordan. BRING CASH!!!!!!!! They do NOT accept credit cards! They DO have an ATM on site,

    Live fire auto weapons demo: estimated 10:00-10:30 AM. Bringing ear protection is a really good idea.

    Lunch is BYOP (bring your own picnic) @ Bizal's or drive into town for burgers and be back by 1:15 or so for...

    Afternoon convoy: approx. 1:30-5:30 PM with stops at a Punkin Patch and The Cidery in Jordan. Maps provided. We all remember last year...

    Chili cookout @ Bizal's starts @ 6-6:30 PM; please bring a dish to share (but you already have planned to do this, right?).

    WWII Searchlight and bonfire after dark, augmented by adult beverages (BYOB) and chill time with the troops.

    O 'Dark Thirty: drive safely home


    Breakfast is still likely but MAY NOT happen. Stay tuned. This was really designed for the campers, all who now will have gone home to watch Saturday Night Live.

    Feel free and welcome to stay or show up and help clean up!

    1-No encampment Friday or this weekend!

    Too cold. Ground too damp. Campers too smart. So don’t come with your sleeping bag, hoping to score a hidey-hole in some one else’s tent.

    2-Friday night dinner is on! We will leave Bizal’s at 18:30 for somewhere close in cars, MVs, hovercraft, what have you. It will be casual and nearby. No other Friday night activities.

    3-Stay tuned for Saturday AM details re: what time coffee & rolls will be there and what time warm, toasty civilian cars will be driving to the Sweet Shop, and at what time will be the live-fire demo.

    4-And if you’re coming to the fun Chili Cookout on Saturday night around 18:00-18:30——BRING A DISH TO SHARE!!!!!! Don’t be a lame butt.

    Stay tuned Friday for more updates.

    That's right, troops.

    We're gonna try our first Militaria & MV Parts Swap Meet, a very casual thang. If you have some stuff you'd like to sell, bring it and sell it from your MV or car--what the Brits call a "Trunk Sale." We may have some tables, too, but that's still TBD. And why come to a swap meet and not BUY some stuff? After all, Christmas is coming and your spouse wants something special. And maybe a little greasy.

    We hope to have a live-fire demo of automatic weapons. Ear protection might be a good idea..

    A drive/convoy to places that have nothing to do with military stuff so those who have other interests will have something to do. And those who DO have military interests like other stuff, too, so ity's all gonna be groovy.

    Gary's WWII searchlight will ply the skies, looking for ISIS bombers and freaking out the neighbors, in no particular order.

    Almost a third of our participants are women, so your bride, GF or Aunt Nelly will have someone to hang with other than a guy who needs a shave.

    And you HAVE sent in your RSVP, right, and let us know how many guests you will be bringing, if any?

    And if you're coming to dinner on Saturday, you're gonna gonna bring a yummy dish to share, RIGHT?

    Just checkin'.

    SAT. OCT.13
    Coffee & rolls provided for breakfast. (But nothin' says "breakfast" like a can of Coke.)
    Your choice: visit the Sweet Shop, Jordan, or MAYBE a live fire demo @ The Horse & Hunt Club (There may be full-auto demos, which is so fun to watch that you’ll get all wiggly) And no, YOU don't get to shoot. You'll put your eye out.

    1:30-5:30: MV convoy to a Punkin Patch and The Cidery in Jordan

    Have a couple of events that are looking for vehicles (and volunteers) to display this coming week:

    1) Back-to-The-Fifities-Weekend June 22-24th. Looking to get 1 vehicle to represent each branch of the service and I need a Marine and Air Force Vehicle (1963 or earlier dated)

    We are also looking for people to help man a booth for the event. We will be helping to sell Flags for the Fallen Heroes Foundation.

    2) Vietnam Memorial Wall the Heals, June 22-24th. Looking for a couple of Vietnam era vehicles.

    If you are interested in helping with either of these, please email me at
