    Default Too quiet in here......

    Too quiet in here lately. Not enough stirring going on. I think Metz sucks.

    Much agreed!

    And yes, it's been far too quiet, not enough smack being talked for entertainment purposes or manufacturers doing this or that according to many reliable sources.

    Sometimes I feel like I live in a bubble here on the "Rock-on-the-other-side-of-the-country". It's like the whole concept of winter just doesn't sink in. Very strange, considering I spent 40 of my 45 years in Alberta. That is, aside from Dec. 1986 to June 1989 working on cruise ships out of Florida, and part of the '94/95 winter season at Panorama, BC.

    Memory is short I guess. The -10C to -15C ish temps when I went home to Jasper for Christmas last year just about killed me LOL.






    Not fire apparatus related, but how's that for smack, Buff? Work for ya? hehehe

    Nice rig Rob. I think one of my bosses was saying that he was quoting equipment for it.

    If I ever get your way, maybe I'll have to stop by and take a look? I don't have to sell it to appreciate it!

    Been busy picking up cans off the side of the road. We're ordering a new rig and we get a discount if we provide our own raw materials.

    Did you ever stop to think that perhaps those cans are a recycled firetruck?

    OK...here is a rumor that I heard that should spark some discussion.

    Ferrara is going to buy LTI so that they can be a "sole source" aerial builder.

    Let the fun begin!
