Can you share a short bio with us so that we can get to know you better?
I have been a lifelong fan of TAGS and RFD. I am recently retired after 40 years in the fire service. I enjoy spending time working on my three antique vehicles...two fire trucks and a '64 VW Bug. One of my fire trucks is a Mayberry Tribute Fire Truck that is lettered for the Mayberry, NC Volunteer Fire Company. I enjoy spending a week at the Mayberry Days festival in Mt. Airy each September. My wife and I travel in our travel trailer with our two dogs.
What sort of hobbies or interests do you have?
I have created the Mayberry Volunteer Fire Company and have authored a 100 page book describing the history of the Fire Company from 1870 until 1971.
