"2011 BYOB Fall Cruise"

   No, that's Bring Your Own Bronco... and what a Cruise it was. The BYOB Northeast Group celebrated it's 5th Annual Fall Cruise beginning at "Lamoureux Ford" in East Brookfield, MA and cruised through some beautiful Fall Foliage back roads. They made a stop in "Princeton Center" for a group photo shoot and then cruised on to "Eight Point Sportsmens' Club" for an afternoon barbecue. What a feed too... Sean Gaudette fired up the Smoker and cooked some delicious Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket and Barbecued Pork. They were served with scalloped potatoes, baked beans, pumpkin bread and... well, isn't that enough?

    As Non-Bronco invitees, my wife and I really had a great time and would like sincerely thank BYOB for their hospitality and camaraderie!

Lamoureux was so pleased with the event, BYOB was invited back for 2012!

- 2009 All Truck Nationals - Carlisle, PA -

   We recently had the good fortune of attending the 2009 All Truck Nationals in Carlsile, PA. My wife and I towed my friend Aaron's Bagged 1990 Ranger down to PA for the show. I have never seen so many trucks in one place! Big trucks, little trucks, dropped trucks, lifted trucks, antique trucks... all shapes and sizes. It was an amazing experience and the folks at Carlisle Events put on a great show.

   We registered with Mid-Atlantic Ford Trucks from the Ford-Trucks.com web site and got to meet a great group of folks. Boy do they no how to party! They had a twin tank smoker grill trailer and they were cooking, it seemed like, all weekend! There were activities for all ages, a couple of Monster Trucks and the fire breathing, car eating "Megasaurus!" We all had a blast and got to see some incredible workmanship.
   I took lots of pictures and you'll see a sampling of them below. Next year's event will be held August 6-8th - give it a shot... it's worth the trip. Here's a link to their site:

Who said Ford didn't make a Harley Edition way back then?
