Fred, with those stoker boiler set-ups it can easily be 2 or 3 grande, sometimes more. :lol:

Nice meeting you guys. Made it home OK, only needed the headlights the last ten miles. Ammeter was slightly on the minus side. Dennis

Thanks Richard and everyone else we had a good time, we made it home around 1:30 this morning driving 65 MPH all the way( and I didn't even try 80! Gaw :shock: )without any real problems although I did break my AirLift load boosters but I guess I really don't need them anyways.
Sorry if I didn't say bye to some of you, so if I missed you nice meeting you! Keepaeyeonit

I told you that was for the ride home, un(fortunately) I forgot the glass and the ice. I'll enjoy every sip, the only thing better than booze is free booze. :P

Thanks again.

Hey, we’re right over here Cap.

Keepaeyeonit, you’re a better trooper than me, I would have been pooped out after such a long day. It appeared as though you and your daughter were having fun though and you even went on the rides. Flyer5 was not able to because he “had” to take pictures. :P

Pintoplumber, I’ll bet it was a lot of fun coming up in the '54 F100 but there must have been a point somewhere on the ride home when you said to yourself “if I had brought a newer truck I would be home by now”
Richard, I have never been to a bad beer party. :cheers:

:lol: Actually I would have loved to go on the coaster but my back was killing me. Plus it was fun to see my daughter go just with her friend. I like to see her be a little independent from old dad once in a while. I thought it took a lot of guts for a 8 and 10yr old to go alone.

My Grandmother on my Mother's side worked at for oil company called Mahaffey's in Swoyserville (I think), they used to have the company picnic at Hansen's. As I recall the owner would keep giving me tickets to go ride the coaster becsue they wanted to see me do it again all by myself. I was probably 5 or 6. That was first coaster I rode, probably when I was about 4 with my Dad, possibly might have been the one at Rocky Glenn.

Sorry for the late reply, been up at the cabin in Potter since Wednesday.
I love driving the old truck. I've owned it for 37 years. Probably put 25K miles on it since it's been restored. I dropped my good generator on one of the terminals and replaced it with another one. Just doesn't seem to charge as well with the headlights on.
