2010 Lancaster County Convention Parade

Made our maiden voyage or parades for this year!

On Saturday June 5th Owen and I went to the Lancaster County Fireman's Convention Parade in Bareville/Upper Leacock Twp. We started our day by picking up the engine at the farm around 9:15.
We stopped by Yoe Fire Company to wash and shine her up. Thanks to Grant and Travis for helping get her ready (including fixing the slanted license plate!). Then on the way to the parade we stopped and put half a tank of water in the engine.

It was a long and hot ride but we had a good time. We averaged 60 MPH going out route 30. Drove 110 miles round trip. Used about 1/4 tank diesel. Here are some photos from the staging area.
