    Steve's M38A1 won not one , but TWO trophies today at the Pequot Lakes car show sponsored by the Lakers Lions Club. He was grumbling a bit during the show as this was the first time his jeep has been in the rain in three years. I say, "What the heck! Jeeps were made for water, mud, and tough terrain. It will survive!"

    In case you're wondering, the unit numbers on our jeep are in honor of my Dad's unit in the Korean War, 32nd Infantry, 1st Battalion, L Company.

    Congratulations Steve, Well Done!

    We left the Wirth’s complex and turn south-east down Red Wing Blvd and went to the Little Log House Pioneer Village. Visited the the Quonset Huts, old and new.

    After this we departed for the backs roads, to Welch than on to MV Specialties World Head Quarters (just out of Red Wing, Minnesota).

      

    Visited The Field of Honor Flag Dedication in Red Wing, Minnesota at Bay Point Park.

    Proceed to Lunch at the Liberty Restaurant & Lounge.

    From here, up on the Bluff to overlook the Town of Red Wing, Minnesota.

    From here we went back to the Wirth’s Complex near Hastings, Minnesota.

    Distance travelled was 63 miles. Good break in and shake down for the Canadian Convoy in a week and a half (June 09)!

    News from the Front:

    In attendance: David Allton and Eric Thompson 

    Report from David Allton as follows:
    Eric and I decided to leave the military vehicles at home this week, and take his 1930 Model A and my 1979 Lond Taxi to the Hopkins Car Show, that Eric helped organize.
     
    It was a great event, although it did feel like we had the smallest vehicles there, that is an unusual feeling compared when we turned up in our MVs

    For a first time event, they did an outstanding job. They vintage warbirds (multi-national), WI National Guard had a MRAP (Mine Resistance Ambush Potection) Vehicle (side note - this truck is Huge), various Historical Military Vehicles, Weapons Displays, encampments and re-enactors.

    Hopefully they will have this show again next year. They great weather and lots of sunshine. I hope to do this show again next year.

    As usual John (Poof) Capin had a great plan, of a number of vehicles, rally at his farm, than convoy to the Watertown, WI airport. For the Armed Forces Day Military Vehicle/Airshow! 

    We had elements of the MMVA, Red Bulls and few local arrive at the Farm and rally up.


    Vehicle types as follows:

    M151A1, M35Ax [2.5 ton truck] & W/M105, M920 series w/special Marine Flat Bed [5 ton truck] & W/M105 and Como Shelter, M880 Ambulance, M37 with Como Shelter, CUCV II and a Jeep TJ in a military scheme.

    We traveled down some the country roads, into Watertown proper. The local residences seem to enjoined seeing the line of vehicles, as we passed by.

    Than arrived on the airport grounds and went to our assign area, to set up as a Static Display. Than a surprise came out of the back of the M105 trailer! The owner unload a M274 Mule and traveled around the various displays.

    We departed around 1630, to head back to the farm, for food and meet and greet.
