It's always a fantastic experience! Count me in! I know it's sometimes difficult or nerve-racking to get these old war machines out and into the city, but it's totally worth it to show up in force and show our appreciation for the veterans. Without them, we wouldn't even have this hobby!

Risking possible breakdowns, fast traffic, and tunnel exhaust fumes is half the excitement...

THANKS AND ALL TRUE!!!!! So worth it, One thing we always try to do is tell all to have a travel buddy if possible, We have tow barred an M 37 , And My Mule ( Used to own :( ) so far off the parade routs ... in gee its like almost 11 years now !!

We have NEVER Left a Man , Woman , Dog , OR >> MV behind !!!!

If You think you can its worth it, Its a long day that goes fast ! Bring warm clothes, Food and refreshments, There are delis on our block or just one away, other coffee houses near also, Watching the Parade is worth the trip BUT >> Then we get to BE IN IT!!!!!!!!

Trying to get the rig ready for the parade....last minute as usual haha I have an American flag no problem - I really want a POW/MIA flag to go with it. However, the places I checked only have made in china flags. I refuse to purchase that. Anyone know of a source of USA made POW/MIA flags?
