Paintball Tank


Can't paintball if you don't have a proper APC/Tank to drive. Depending on the rules of the scenario it is either a APC, in which the shooters can be shot and killed. Or it is a Tank, which means the shooters in it cannot be killed. That doesn't mean you can't harass them with some balls on their chin.

Some videos of it in action.

Chess Set

Ya, it has been awhile again. Here, enjoy a chess set made from various automotive parts from Brandon, who works at Don's Automotive in Austin Texas. Don gave me permission to pass along the info. Pretty neat idea and it wouldn't be hard to copy.

"Cut open BJs & sway bar links, drum brake
adjusters, 92 Nissan PU 2.4 liter rocker arms, and misc.
hardware. The coil springs under the rooks are dampers from a clutch disc. Everything is a bunch of different parts Ford, Mopar, Mazda they had laying around."

Sauk Prarie Fly In, Car Show, Veterans Memorial

Saturday took us to Sauk Prairie for their Biennial Fly In. Nothing judged and no classes for the Car Show portion of the event which was fine but what we did get was premiere parking. Right smack dab in the middle of the event. So there was no long walk from the parking lots and we could leave as easily as we came. Brock and William had a blast. They pissed and moaned all morning about going but once we pulled in and they saw the cars, planes and military equipment they where hooked. The main event of the day was a Memorial built to honor our Military Veterans of Wisconsin. Guest speakers, past and present Service Members spoke and they unveiled display which consisted of the Jet, Huey and M60 tank.

The high point for the boys was the BlackHawk which they got to sit in and look over. Then they got to watch it lift off.
