Event:    Boy Scouts Report to State Parade
Location: Austin  Texas
Description: This was my second year to attend this parade.  My good friend Tim and his wife Trish asked if we (the Lone Star Chapter of the MVPA) would kindly help his den of Cub and Tiger Cubs with transportation.  Of course, any time we have the opportunity to get the mil-vehs out we do!
