2002 - As we pulled out to head for Louisville for the Mid America
Trucking show, it was raining, as usual. The rain continued until
we were almost there. When we arrived in Louisville, we had to
stop by the Fairgrounds before checking into the hotel just to
see the trucks getting set up for the show. Wow, was I impressed
with the trucks that were participating this year! There were
a lot of familiar faces and a lot of people showing for the first
time. After we got finished checking out all the Big Rides in
the show, it was time to check into the hotel and get some sleep.
Morning, we headed back out to the show to start shooting the
show coverage. The weather wasn't too bad when we arrived. Halfway
through our shooting, we decided to go inside and see some of
the indoor exhibitors. Once we finished looking around inside,
it was time to head back outside and finish our shooting for show
coverage. Wow! What a difference a few hours make. We walked back
outside to a 15 degree temperature drop and snow flurries. Needles
to say, the picture shooting was completed as quickly as possible
so we could go back inside to the warmth.
was still cold and a good day to shoot some stuff inside and spend
some time with my long time friend, Kuenn McClinton, of Deelegant
Model Truck Fleet.
warmed up a little and I lined up some trucks to shoot for features
on Sunday. We finally got some good weather on Sunday. We did
some photo shoots for features we will be bringing you in future
issues. Enjoy the almost 300 pictures in the show coverage and
I'm sure you will agree, Louisville once again did not disappoint!
