    Well while I was reading this I had a thought come to me.

    Asst Ch you have placed at least 4 threads / polls in the forum asking for a poll on color, cab, number of stations and so on. Which isn't a bad thing at all, if your wanting some research ideas. But the fact is yuo posted them and then made a thread about wanting a new on.

    My department doesn't take in as much as you. We got a grant for a new engine, and gear. I wish we could afford a back up truck would be nice. The thing is I agree with alot of the others on here. If the truck really isn't broken and it is not the front line engine then why get another. Save the money and place it in an account somewhere to get a new truck soon.

    Heck one of the best pieces of equipment I ever used and rode in was a 1954 American LaFrance, 85 foot, open cab, ladder truck. You know the type with out the bydraulic stabilizers.

    Now about your age, from the previous posts in other threads yuo pretty much said you are a JR. So before you start trying to sell off equipment from your department, wait a little.
    Thanks

    Now back on target.. no one wants my Huffy for a new F-150? C'mon, I'll even include the beads on the spokes, the streamers on the handles, and the basket on the front. If the price is right.. I'll even leave the bell on it!! Oh.. yea.. sorry, but it doesn't have a seat or tires. Nothing hurts like jumping onto a bike without a seat!

    Maverick...

    Chill out man. This kid LIED about being the captain of the juniors and not being a junior himself. When cornered and faced with overwhelming evidence that he LIED about being a junior he finally admits he is junior. What about that is your mind deserves leniency and us giving him a break?

    If he wanted to advertise a truck for sale or trade why didn't he just do that instead of trying to impress us with his fabrication? I wish them luck in finding someone to trade them a newer truck for one they think is junk. I don't see it happening but I do wish them luck.

    And anyone that would post the following and expect people to respect him because of it has more problems than I can imagine. If I were to use that same standard at age 46 I could claim 44 years expereince in the fire service. And I would expect to be soundly thrashed by everyone here including stm4710!

    And 2 years experience wow man you don't read the text very well do you? I've been hanging around the station since I was 5 not counting as experience but I went to training classes,drills and all that so I have more than 2 years experience
    Truly a shame that people feel the need to fabricate something to seem more impressive than they truly are. Honestly if he had said who he was and what he was and been honest from the get go this topic wouldn't even exist.

    First the Dragonslayer, now
    asstjuniorengineercaptsonofchi ef292...

    What are the forums coming to?

    Is there something in the water that makes these "kids" think that it's all right to lie about their certifications and training and that they have the right to take their place among the crusty old jakes?

    Maverick... are you a junior too? Your defense of this little "taleteller" lead me to believe so.

    Listen to Goose... it's not good Mav...

    no im not a junior, i just dont see why everyone needs to rag on them because their young. yes the old timers know an assload more then juniors, but just because thier young doesnt mean you should dismiss everything they say. just cause i took the side of a junior doesnt mean i am one. now if you'll excuse me, its time to kick the tires and light the fires big daddy!

    Asst. Eng.292

    Try looking into getting Fire Apparatus Magazine, they show alot of different apparatus every month.

    As for your Engineer title, I saw someone question if you were driving fire trucks a couple of pages back. Is an Engineer in your department someone who is assigned a truck to check everything on that truck once a week? Because that's what it is in my department. Someone who drives the truck is simply a driver or operator.

    For you old guys

    Remember, you were young, stupid and cocky once. Give him advice, not jump on him.

    OK Kids, this is going no where....post closed.

    Also "Adults" .. engaging in some silly verbal battle here or telling people where they stand in society, etc. also has no place here. Growing up isnt just for kids. Really.

    We'll remind people posting stuff for sale, trade, etc. isn't part of the forums.
