Mass the troops in Kamchatka.

June 16, 2011


The route that I take to school everyday goes over a railroad track. It’s a pretty nice crossing. You can take it at speed if the idiot in front of you doesn’t slow down to a crawl. Usually there is no train, but I’ve traveled this route roughly 1,800 times now (this was my 10th year teaching at Lincoln Lutheran) and so I think it’s pretty safe to say that there’s been a train at the crossing at least 100 times.

However, there are usually never tanks on the train (and by usually, I mean except for this once). I believe they were being dispached to shore up our shaky border with Wyoming.

One tank

two tank

desert camo tank, forest camo tank

I am, however, open to other thoughts concerning their destination.

    Tank You for that enlightening post.


  2. Lauren Said on:

    Oh, yes -- Wyoming.

    However, I feel that South Dakota is becoming far too familiar. Maybe it’s time to send them a message.

    It’s Iowa we need to worry about. Those Iowegians.


  4. Peggy Said on:

    Hasn’t there quite a few Big Foot sightings in the midwest?


  5. Brad Said on:

    Maybe they’re selling them to the recycling center. I hear that’s pretty good money.

      The going rate seems to be about $200 per ton, so a tank should be worth about $12,400. You’d think you could just drive them to the junk yard. Of course, then you have to have someone else to drive you back, then it’s just a big hassle. Nevermind. Train seems like the way to go.

    Oh good! My order should arrive sometime tomorrow. Thanks, Lloyd!

    Hey, my bil is in charge of the National Guard for WY. I’m sure they’re the ones defending the border. Do you want me to try to talk him down?
