          Again

          Reviving an old story since the T-34 was in the news again.

          Check out the review. I'm hoping to do this again someday.

            as a member of the friends of the tank museum in bovington, you get to go in or on a tank after you've helped out on the annual tankfest. great fun. as i mentioned in another post, my brother-in-law is a major in the british army and he pulled a few strings. first we sat in a classroom whilst they spoke to us about modern british tanks. at the end of the film, i heard a deafening roar outside. when we went outside, there was a challenger II sitting there. the instructor asked "who wants to go for a spin?" we all got on this beast and went around the track. when we got back to where we started, another chap asked jokingly if he could drive it. with that, the driver popped out of the tank and told him to sit in the driving seat. he showed him where the controls were and to keep an eye on the guages and told him to do a circuit. when he had finished, the instructor asked "who's next?" i didn't need asking twice. i got in that seat so fast, i got friction burns. the instructor told me where the controls are and then said, "see if you can put you foot down all the way around the track?" i thought, if i'm going to die, i'm going to do it in a chally II. i put my foot down and that was it. i went around the track 5 times in all that day. this was when the chally II was still in the experimental stages so i was really privalidged. not many civvies get to drive an experimental tank around a secret test track do they. i've been in touch with the guys at sdkfz.com who owns that beautiful jagdpanther. i've asked to do some volunteer work with them and they're putting a friends of the foundation so hopefully, not only will i be helping out with german WWII vehicles, i might get to ride on them as well.

                Wow - the Minnesota tank/MG shoot sounds really fun!

                There's a place near Athens, GA where you can rent a bunch of MGs. I've fired their MG-34 (sweet shooter), BAR and Sten. Great fun! I'll definitely look into tankride.com!

                  New stuff

                  Looks as if they added a few elements to the ride.

                  I need to go again..in some sort of official capacity.
