Actually, I was talking about the flatbed in the background with all the kegs on it.

Adapt and modify, I always say.

Butch, I couldn't find the picture you mention but there was this awful odor coming from someplace.
Dave, I don't think honey wagons came with headlights.

Thank you Sigmund..the honey wagon. Think of the worst thing you ever smelled.....it would smell like roses compared to the honey wagon.

I remember my first field trip outside Bamberg, we were in this field and over yonder was a german farmer pulling this wagon through his field. So I asked my platoon Sgt. what was this guy doing. He replied that the wago was called a " Honey Wagon " and I asked why they called it that. He replied that I would find out when the wind changed directions. Well the wind changed direction soon after and I yanked my glove off ( it was winter) and covered my nose and mouth so I could breathe. The aroma if you could call it that was GROSS.

I remember every night the farmers used to come to the mess hall and load up on the food wastes.The animals near Pond Barracks ate good.
