I know, I know, I'm the random (2nd Gen) Explorer guy - but I want an F-Series, so does that count?
Always neat to see faces to go with names. And no real strange looking people in the crowd just yet...well, til now. This was a shot a friend of mine snapped right before we left to go to a church service she and I were playing live music for (yes, I still play the trumpet...something I've done since I was 8). Don't mind the tie - it was not a choice of mine...lol.
just so people know, (i'm sure horsepuller will yank this and put his own version up when he gets back and thats fine) i find the easiest way to post a picture up here is to
make a photobucket account (just DO IT!)
hover the mouse over the picture after it has been loaded and tagged/untagged...
right click the code next to the words IMG code then click copy
when you post in the forum just right click and paste into your message when you type it!
also (i'm dum i know) can someone explain how to shrink images, i've been told but i've forgotten
I no breakey rulz

Reason: there is no R in paste, however there is a E
Coincidentally, the code tags (which are supposed to let you put code here without actually doing anything) will not let me put the correct image tags in without showing a picture and I had to actually make an image of the code and post it here so you can see what I'm talking about.
Sorry for the misspelling, it's early and I don't feel like fixing it right now. But you get the point.
You don't need to use both height and width. I generally only use width="400" or something like that, and let the height get automatically set so that it stays proportional.
Here's somevacation photos taken at the lighthouse on Whitefish Point, Michigan. That's Lake Superior in the background.
We toured the shipwreck museum located at the light station. The ship's bell recovered from the Edmund Fitzgerald is on display in memorium. The Fitzgerald dove under 30 foot waves just 15 miles north of Whitefish Point. The ship and crew of 29 now rest under 535 feet of water.

I had the camera, we were both backed up to the pit and I thought it would be a nice time to take some pictures. Sure glad I did.
The year is 1966 (even though it says '67 on the photos) and I'm stationed at Offutt AFB, SAC Hq. south of Omaha, NE. My job is driving a
"dumpster truck" hauling trash to the onbase landfill. The truck I'm driving is 60C451, one of three 1960 model Ford F-600's at Offutt that
picks up these 10 yd containers all over the base, then transports and dumps them at the landfill. Good job, great truck! I enjoyed it.
It was one of my first regular assignments. Check the creases on those fatigues!!!
We had a guy named Roger Bedard from MA that used to put his truck on "two wheels" going around the corners!
I liked 451 too much to treat her like that. I guess I just LOVE workin' those Ford trucks!!!
Hello, everyone! I'm brand new to the forum, and I just thought that this would be a good place to start... and the two A2C's I saw in here inspired me to post some pics. My name's Brandon, by the way.
Me and my girlfriend, Christina, a couple years (and stripes) ago:
Me and the best MSgt in the USAF (my mother, with 24 years in)
And hanging out at the lake this summer.
I'll get some pics of my truck on the site at some point soon ('82 F150). Nice to meet everyone!
Here I am … 40 years ago this month. Basic Training at <st1>Fort </st1><st1>Jackson, </st1><st1:state w:st="on"><st1>South Carolina</st1></st1:state>:
I did 6 years … I made Spec 4 and Sgt (E5) … TWICE!!! … When I got busted …For wearing a wig (for 2 years!) that covered up hair down past my shoulders … there were people betting I’d NEVER get my stripes back.
They were wrong. I got out as SGT E5!
</o> I went back into the service after the towers came down on 9/11. I was 50 years old. The only military unit that would take me was a Naval GUARD Unit. (I never heard of such a thing either) … Because of my civilian skill set … I went in as a Chief Boatswain mate (E-7).
They told me I’d NEVER go on active duty. They lied.
Two months after my enlistment I was supervising the rebuilding and refit of brown water patrol boats at the Philly Navy Yard.
Here’s me getting qual’ed up as a master diver at Philly:
My name is Ted.
I post other places as CPO Ted
BTW … “Oddshot” is from an old Tom Paxton hippy anti-war song, “Talking <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1>Vietnam</st1> </st1:country-region>Pot-Luck Blues”.
