Photos from the WWII Weekend in Reading, PA

If you like vintage warbirds or anything related to WWII then do yourself a favor and visit the WWII Weekend held by the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in Reading, Pennsylvania.  Every June a dedicated group of reenactors puts on a fantastic event based on the time era of WWII.


You will find many types of operating WWII vehicles at this show. Driving up and down the show field you will often see Jeeps, trucks, motorcycles, and occasionally even tanks!







The reenactors are the real stars of the show. Many of them camp out the entire weekend; never breaking character. Different encampments are constructed representing various countries and military divisions.







The highlight of the event are the afternoon airshows.  Various vintage aircraft take to the sky while an announcer provides historical commentary about the warbirds.  The WWII aircraft often includes trainers, fighters, bombers,  and transport planes.











Be sure not to miss the next exciting WWII Weekend held the first full weekend of June every year.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
