Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Pound VA Post Office

You’d think they could have at least had a sign…

Not a criticism…not a criticism.  Just sayin’.

St. Charles VA Fire Trucks

I took these pix in January, 2014.  I’m no expert on old trucks, so I’ll stand corrected if my dates are wrong.  These are great old workhorses, though, and a joy to see.  Note that they haven’t added the St. Charles name to a couple of these.  The first one I took is apparently from Mary-Del, which I think is in Maryland.  It’s  a 60s model Chevrolet, modded by Hahn Motors of Hamburg PA.

This one is a Chevy Kurbmaster step van 1979 or 80 vintage.

This, I think, is the Fire Department’s main truck now.  It’s a Ford Grumman 429-4V.  1984(?).  Modded by Waterous.
