2014 A Salute to Veterans Parade

Here's the only shot I have of the parade today. I hope to have video to post later. My son and his family rode with me and everyone had a grand time.

Very nice. I like the way you secured the chairs. They aren't going anywhere.
Can't wait to see the video.

That is a great looking truck. Dale JR. must be proud. Did you pick the number or was it assigned?

Thanks guys. The chairs on the bed didn't budge. The video is coming soon, I hope. It's on my wife's phone and she's busy making Easter breakfast...

The number was assigned by the parade officials. The parade started at 10:00, but I didn't need to start Betsy until 10:35. So that's how far back #88 really was. And I never needed to shift into 2nd gear until I was past the reviewing stand. Most of the parade she was idling in 1st or stopped. Not sure what the slowdown was. Maybe the video will tell.

I was flying the seven flags again this year: Old Glory, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and POW/MIA. As we drove past the reviewing stand, a group of uniformed men came to attention and saluted Old Glory. Gave me chills. I love this stuff.

Thanks Bobby. Yes, the "lock-up" problem I've been dealing with for months is fixed... by simply readjusting the brakes.

And she didn't even begin to overheat with all the idling and stopping during the parade. So, I think that's cool... see what I did there?

Here's the video

I copied the parade video off my wife's phone and edited it down from 17 minutes to 5 minutes. I had to download Windows Movie Maker to edit the file, then save it for "computer" to convert it so Windows Media Player could recognize it.

Betsy shows up at 3:00. I left the little cars in there for Ilya, since he just got a little Jeep.

I hope this works. The last few times I tried to post a video it did not work.

And, it still won't work...

Video link worked for me, too. What a nice day and a fun looking parade. Ol' Betsy did her job very well, standing tall and proud. Congrats on getting all the problems fixed. But the Shriners in the midget cars is always fun.

Smile what were you thinking ?

I can't believe you put your truck in a parade , where dirty people and kids would touch it and get close to it, Then you had things tied on the back , what if something fell and scratched the truck , How can you enjoying using a truck like they where meant to be used. I also noticed some of the paint doesn't match, And where was the guy with the trailer, to take you home if it rained . I also didn't notice the big gold chain around your neck , where you out of uniform ? Your not one of those guy that would rather drive and use the truck as a old truck , are you . Trailer queens are like trophy Wives, Real pretty to look at, But your kind of afraid to take them out and ride them hard and put them away wet . I would rather have a driver with dents and scratches , and plenty of character over any show truck. Just having some fun you enjoy your truck and that's all that counts .

Gee, Joe. You could have been scootin' around like all of the Shriner's guys. That would have gotten their attention!
What a great day. I'm glad that you made it.
