ROLL CALL: "West Texas Detachment" Identify Yourselves, Please.

How about those of us in Ft Worth on the I-35 Line?

Of course, y'all are welcome also. Once we establish where everyone is from, it'll be easy for us to coordinate get-togethers, find help on road trips, share shipping expenses, and generally try to minimize the percieved distance separating us all.

Anyone on the I-35 Corridor willing to head this way for parades, rallies, trail rides, etc. or just interested in hearing what's happening out here in West Texas can subscribe to this thread and/or present their names and contact info for the roster.

Similarly, any of us "outlanders" may occassionally head east to hook-up with y'all. It's not uncommon "out west" for members to be as muxh as 75-100 miles from the nearest fellow member. At this point, I know of only 5 within a 75 mile radius of my position. And only about 12 within a 150 mile radius.

So....

HOWDY! and Welcome Aboard !

WTDet ROSTER Update: July 18, 2010

Good morning West Texas Detachment - Steel Soldiers (WTDet) Troops :!::!:

It's good to have so many "detachees" stepping forward for this Roll Call.

I have finally mustered the time to review the individual posts here and re-compile our Roster. The computer that I was previously keeping this (and many other files) on crashed and burned a few weeks ago. The machine has been replaced with a state-of-the-art ASUS Laptop and PuterOps have now been restored. I've come through the priority-based Damage Control Project List to this point. (Also lost our home accounting software, we had backups, but the program "Microsoft Money" is now obsolete and no longer supported by MicroSoft aua:evil:)

So, without further ado..... here are out 16 soldiers.....

Welcome to the Detachment, Maverick:-D Really appreciate your stepping forward for waypoint duty.

I'll add you to the Detachment Roster for future reference.

I could have used your aid about 18 months ago when I had rental car troubles just down the road from you. A brand new Pontiac G6 (only had 400 miles on it) suddenly couldn't do 22mph. It wasn't a loose gas-cap, and being a Sunday morning, a replacement car or towing was going to be a 4-6 hour wait. I told them I'd drive it in to the airport for an exchange. It took almost an hour, but we made it, and they gave me a 50% discount for the inconvenience. (Considering how much I saved them on the towing charges I thought they were quite kind). BTW: I recommend Enterprise for car rentals.

If I was on the list I would have been more than happy to lend a hand.

No MV yet :( thought I had enough saved up for one then my company decides to move the whole **** operation so my MV savings is going to pay off the house so I can hopefully stay here and not have to start all over again in the north.

USAFSS-Coldwarrior,

Check your PM's. I have not one, but TWO parade offers in San Angelo in the month of November. They are having a Veterans Day parade. They are also having the 'Hunt for Heroes' parade the Friday BEFORE Thanksgiving.

They are asking for ANY MV's.

I live in Denver and I'll probably be driving one of my M1009's down for the Hunt for Heroes parade. If I could get ANY other participants, it would be appreciated. Plus I MIGHT be able to swing dinner for those with MV's willing to show up for the Hunt for Heroes parade and a chance to meet the wounded warriors.

My name is Jim Waldrep - Denver, Colorado - Military Vehicle Collector of Colorado member and I would GLADLY enter my name on your roles. Granted I don't get down to West Texas but once a year at best to visit my folks in the Baptist Memorial Retirement village. But any time I do, I'd LOVE to hook up with you guys. And if ANY of you ever get any where NEAR Denver, you gotta get in touch.

YO, MAV, I'm probably one of those speeders you've met. Once or twice. I got one going back home LAST NOVEMBER the weekend before Thanksgiving.

My fault, I WAS going too fast. Just trying to get home and not paying enough attention to the speed portion of the drive. Paid the ticket and had ZERO complaints with the officer I dealt with. The folks at the court house were pretty nice as well. But hey, they are TEXANS, what else would I expect?

out...

The Hunt for Heroes parade is on Friday, November 19th, 2010. Last year it started at about 10 am if my memory is correct.

If I have ANY interest from anyone, I'll gladly forward contact info on to my sister and her contact info on to ANYONE who wants to join either of the parades.

wallew,
I rcvd & replied to PM. Thanks for the heads-up.

Looking forward to the parade and Ride.

You are certainly welcome to post info updates here or notify me via PM and I'll handle the updates.... Your choice.

When we have specifics, we can simply post an eye-catching events Thread and then direct folks to the schedule.
