    Default Pictures from the past

    A good friend of mine shared these pictures with me the other day.

    "175 Mules from AZ and CA, 9 trailer parts 3-10-96" Is written on the back of one of them.

    No other info is available, and yes they are all long gone. There may be more pictures yet to be discovered.

    The picture of the Recoilless Rifle Mule was taken at the 1986 MVCC (Predecessor to the MVPA) National Convention at Lowell, MA. I can tell because that is our M114 on a trailer behind our Deuce.

    The mule stacks look like the ones Leonard Grove used to have and if I remember he was from College Station also. Leonard, Bill Watson and Charlie Miller taught me all I know about Mules and sadly they have all passed on.

    You are exactly right!
    The pictures are from the Leonard Grove collection. His place was in Pleasant Gap, just a few miles from State College.
