After the long, cold winters in Alaska, spring is a welcome sight. As it starts to warm up, I am able to get outside and play more with the dirt bikes and the horses, work on all the outdoor projects around the house and yard (and as you see from my posts, with all the animals and new horse equipment, I’ve got plenty to do in that department) to just enjoying a break from the freezing temperatures.
For the past few years for me, spring also is the start of one of my favorite events that I have had the pleasure to be associated with. Truckfest in the United Kingdom.
In fact, I’ve just arrived for Truckfest Peterborough that kicks off tomorrow and thought I’d write a quick post at the hotel. After a long day of travel, I was welcomed back to the UK by old Truckfest friends and beautiful weather; this weekend it looks like there won’t be any need for my “wellies” (rain boots) and, if you are attending, you should see me at a number of different areas around the venue. Stop by and say hi!
Truckfest is such an amazing event when it comes to trucks… It’s a family event, and features sooooo many different kinds of trucks (American and European, plus some specialty vehicles) to the tune of about 1,000 rigs. Just amazing. Beyond the trucks, Truckfest puts on some pretty amazing shows… Monster trucks to FMX dirt bike jumping (yeah, I am pretty much in heaven) along with a couple other celebrities here in the UK. There’s nothing else like it.
I’ll be sure to get a few pictures and up in a day or two, but if you are in the area, I sure hope you pop by. It’s a beautiful May Bank Holiday and it’s so nice to be back!
