I wish I read about this photo shoot sooner as I would have left home earlier, oh well.
I was glad I was able to meet Jan and Ryan and the group as well as meeting Harm.

Jan correct me if I am wrong. The name Harm Speersta rings a bell about 15 years or more one of the Truck Magazines ran a story about Harm I am sure he had a beautiful Blue and White car haulier that was immaculate but maybe I an wrong. I take it the weather stayed fine for you and the rest of Hanks Troops. How many Digi cards did you use great pictures as always thanks.

You are absolutely correct, Harm used to be a car hauler - in fact, I think he told me he'd been a car hauler for most of his life. The weather did indeed stay fine, except for one shower on Thursday that lasted maybe five minutes, hehe. Memory cards - well, I only used one, as I downloaded the pics to my portable harddrive through my laptop every evening, but all in all I took almost 3000 pictures.  ;)

Yes, I was glad you ran into us as well! And good deal about meeeting Harm - we had a long visit with him in the 10-4 tent, and found out he is an exceptionally friendly fellow! :)

That pic really turned out good! Kudos to our photographer, who I believe was Mrs. Suderman! :)

Yes you are correct, Jan. Mrs Suderman did take the picture. But when the shutter clicked, Chris Hall's head was side-ways. So I had to use Chris' head from another photo I took later on. Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it. Maybe no one would have noticed.

Hey guys, the weekend is over, did make it down there, barely, we had a very bad hotel experience!! The wife did not get any sleep at all, I slept on/off for a couple, almost ended up leaving Yakima at 6:00 AM, decided to get a bite to eat and then see what time it opened. We were in the show at 8:00, did a quick roam thru the show taking many pictures and left by 10:30. Too bad we couldn't have seen it in different circumstances and met with all you guys, it would have been great........but, at least I did get to see it and it was worth it for sure!!

I just made it back home after 18 hours straight on the road.Exhausted but it was worth it.I had an awesome time at the show and enjoyed meeting everyone.I had a great trip down with Hanky enjoyed spending some and swapping stories with him.So many beautiful trucks in one place it was hard to take them all in but we sure tried ,I haven't walked so much in a long time but it was worth it.Picked up some shirts,some hats and a couple trucks from Jeffs Collectibles,it was a great trip.
