Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Some Jasper VA fire trucks

Admittedly, I don’t know a lot about fire trucks, but I take pictures of them whenever I run across them.  We were coming back from a long, tiring day of scrabbling up hillsides tracking down old coal mines in Kentucky when my buddy noticed all these trucks parked at the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department in Virginia.  As it turned out, the VFD was having training and had all their trucks out in the sun.

This is a Ford F600, 1989, I think

Here’s the pumper control panel.  The truck was modified by EEI, out of Raleigh.

This is a Sanford truck.  I’m not sure of the year.

And this is a ?1984? Grumman Fire Cat.  The guys said it runs great!

And thanks to all the men of the Volunteer Fire Dept.  They’d had a long day, but took time to talk with us.
