    I remember one driver on a Convoy who down shifted at a too high of Rpm Range,and bent the pushrods & valves on a M-38 multi fuel,what a job he made for myself and another mechanic,we happen to be on a training exercise at FT.Bragg,you can guess how our veh. was repaired in a matter of days,Improvise,Adapt.

    3522... I think it's the same hill....... I'm describing it all funny, and like you said... 30 years adds new things... like buildings that weren't there 20 years before I got there (30 years ago now)

    Yeah, Improvise, Adapt! We never could get parts very quickly, so to keep stuff running, we'd always have a couple-few vehicles on perpetual deadline while they were cannibalized for parts! Had to keep 'em rotated, though, so whenever we'd get the parts we needed, we'd throw a whole bunch of new parts on a deadline truck, cannibalize another to complete it, and send it out.

    I had a guy who used to try to get away with fixing stuff with bubble gum. Seriously.

    His excuse was that he was improvising.....like he hadn't ever heard of duct tape.

    no, but you're gonna have to move all our sh!t!! I'm not good at loading trucks like you guys are.... did you see the pics of the new LVSR I have in the photo book?! It's enough to make anyone want to drive those things.

    The new LVSR looks awesome. That pic is the first I have seen of them. The 16 with the 870 brought back some memories of overnight hauls on the rock with the D7's on the back. We had a Gunny who told us when we went by the SNCO billets, he better hear the airhorns or else there would be hell to pay when we turned the trip ticket!
