Yesterday was a blast at Firehouse Expo. The traffic was a little light, but it was Thursday and typically is that day. We will see what today has to offer.
I enjoyed seeing many friends again and meeting new ones for the first time. You can read more about what we are doing this week here.
Below is video that Captain Wines shot of the P & D opening up the exhibit floor
The Central Maryland FOOLS Bash was a great time last night. The one thing I couldn’t get over was that Captain Wines and I were the only ones wearing leather helmets…or any helmets for that matter.
The picture below is by Stanley Jaworski. You can view the rest of his photos from the Bash here.
