new & interesting places for your GPS

Personal avatar (picture) discussion.

 

We received an email from jmkthird suggesting we start a thread so that members could discuss or explain their personal avatars/pictures.

We think that's a great idea since we have some really interesting ones out there!

If you have recently changed your picture and are not seeing the new one or if someone else is describing their new avatar and it's not what you are seeing hit F5 on your keyboard to reload the page.

Looking forward to your explanations and/or descriptions! razz

Leg Lamp

Last year I took a trip around the Great Lakes, and on the way back home we stopped at the Christmas Story house and took the tour.

The story goes that only the exterior of the house and yard were actually used in the movie. It was put up for sale on ebay and a guy bought it sight unseen, put $250,000 into it to make it look like the interior shots for museum purposes.

I bought a leg lamp there for my living room grin They mentioned that the reason the crate says "His End" is that they cut too much off of one side to make it fit. They needed to cut 2 inches off of each side, but decided to make just one cut of 4 inches on the left, and cut the "T" off.

My favorite Christmas movie.

My favorite Christmas movie.

Mine is the plane I crashed (or made an off-site landing)when a cylinder decided to separate from the engine and I lost all power. My wife and I walked away without any injuries.

Big Smoky Airplane

My avatar is the KC-135 air refueling tanker, which I flew in the Air Force. And to answer the next question, yes, that's also where "Moose135" comes from.

It's from the "old days", when we used water injection for added power, making for loud, smoky takeoffs - something you don't see anymore since they upgraded the engines years ago. As I like to say: "We were Gods - we made water burn!"

And Dave - like we say, "Any landing you can walk away from..." grin

KC-135

Hi Moose, Looked up the KC-135 and was quite facinated that this plane has been in operation for over 50 years. So with the water injection for a power boost is that steam rather than smoke that we see?

Are we there yet? 1490LMT

I don't know

Don't know what they were burning but I remember the scrambles of B-52's and KC-135's taking off from Carswell AFB during the 60's when I was visiting GD. Used to shake the motel we stayed at pretty bad !

Cars in the parking lots always had an oily film on them.

My avatar is a burning computer. No idea where I found it or why I chose it. It just kind of ended up here. One of these days I'll change my pic to something a little more normal for me.

Mine reminds me of So. Cal. Blue skys, palm trees. With the real estate boom of 2003-2006, they started to build in odd lots that have always been vacant since much of the other land has already been developed. Buildings are a big part of the area.

Both Tony & his teammate Ryan Newman had a bad race. Their teams obviously missed the setups of both cars. Neither one had the speed or balance in their cars. They both finished 2 laps down. Pitiful! confused

"GO FOR BROKE"

Hi, everyone,

My "picture" is the U.S. Army Unit Crest of the 100th Battalion, 442nd Regimental Combat Team.

The motto of the 442nd was "Go For Broke". It's a gambling term that means risking everything on one great effort to win big.

Shortly after the attack on Pear Harbor, Japanese-Americans, no matter where they lived in the U.S., were taken into custody and forced to live in guarded compounds. "Concentration camps", if you will. Most of the able bodied men in this group, second generation Japanese-Americans (Nisei), wanted to participate in the war effort. They wanted to fight, to prove their loyalty to the U.S. To make a long story short, the 442nd was formed. This unit was one of, if not the most decorated unit of any during WWII.

First of all, "NO" I'm not Japanese-American, but I did enlist into this unit (U.S. Army Reserve) in 1963 at Fort DeRussy, Honolulu, HI, while I was still a student at Kalani High School. I completed my basic training at Schofield Barracks, and the remainder of my active duty for training obligation there as well. In late 1964, I transferred to the Maryland Army National Guard in Denton, MD.

It is just...

V & T Locomotive #25

This is one of only two operating Virginia & Truckee Locomotives. The other is #22 (INYO) which is operated only on Fourth of July weekend.

I volunteer at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City. We use this engine (VT 25 built in 1905) for steam-up weekends each summer. Photo taken at Santa Train in 2008.

This weekend I'm teaching eight people to operate our 1926 Edwards Motorcar.

Electric Vehicle

I drove around for over a year before friends urged me to let others know my S-10 pick-up truck had been converted to electric power. I added the letters and American Flag on the back. Lots of waves from other drivers and people asking questions about the truck.

great movie

we watch it every year.

Mine--The Wall in Washington D.C.

This is in honor of all the guys (and girls) that gave their all in Vietnam. Two friends of mine are listed on the wall and I also have The Wall as a graphic on the rear window of my truck. I was lucky and came home; over 58,000 didn't make it back. This is in remembrance of them and their families.

Picture

Hi,
I taught HS Science for 38 years and retired recently. Liked the idea of a Plasma Globe so I changed my picture last last year.

Aerial yoga

Just changed my pic. The previous was of my little puppy who is now 4 months old and 4 times larger than he was when that pic was taken. smile

My new pic is of me demonstrating a new pose in my aerial yoga class.
Here's a pretty decent link describing aerial yoga for those curious.
