Dragoon Mechanics

If you're not bothered by grease under your fingernails and the smell of diesel in your clothes, this is the place to bitch about all those busted, frozen knuckles you got trying to get vehicles on line for Graf, Reforger, the border, or any number of "dire emergencies" the border troops faced on a daily basis.Ever have that one jerk-off in the outfit that broke everything he touched? Tell him about it here. Maybe he'll show up one day and read it.Have that one special friend or mentor in the…See More

Still kickin', Jeff. Thanks.

Hell yeah we can wear Stetson's, but there are a couple guidelines.

1. Wear of the Cavalry Stetson should be confined to Cavalry/Military functions.

2. Stetsons will not be worn in bars/taverns, strip joints, or brothels, unless:

a) A Cavalry/Military function.

b) Coming from or going to a Cavalry/Military function.

Hi Jeff, those Sheridans were fun. One day road marching to the wash rack the accelerator stuck wide open. (I guess they were supposed to have governors, but everyone disabled them) So here we were speeding along - driver steering side to side to kill speed - me and the TC on the back deck trying to open the grill doors and grab the throttle. The column was stopped ahead  pulling into the rack...traffic was coming in the other lane..... TC grabbed it with about 10 feet to spare. I was surprised they had gas engines....

Right on, Brother. Hope to see you there.

Happy birthday, Jeff! Haven't heard from you in awhile. Hope all is well.
