      From my understanding, FEMA USAR teams are on site from Miami and Broward with FL USAR teams to cover as much area as possible. So far I've seen teams from Nashville, Little Rock and Phoenix to support local teams, not sure if crews from Atlanta will be heading down and heard crews from Ohio may be heading down, not sure on that. Task Force 5 (Jax) likely has more work as there is no team between Jacksonville and Tallahassee and may need to deploy west. Areas around Jax have local dept based USAR teams that are handling as much as they can right now but are spread thin as well.

      Mississippi Task Force 1 is on site in Clay county with additional water rescue resources.

  3. Just sittin' here waiting on Irma, eating way to much of the hurricane food. Stay safe my Florida peeps!

  4. Well, I've decided to take the bull by the horns and organize my collection. This semester is a lot lighter than the previous one so I have more time available. The quantum and a few other side projects are now on hold while I sort out my disaster. I plugged in all the boxed sets to brickset and I have some 850+ sets I need to open and sort! Whoopy

  6. There needs to be a GoFundMe but for Lego.

    I simply have too much going on right now to spend more money on it and create new rigs.

      You said you had "to much going on right now." That doesn't specifically say you do have a job, it simply implies you're to busy and possibly out of or low on cash for Lego. So no, you didn't say at any point in that post you don't have a job.

      Exactly, so don't go assuming sh*t. I'll take my builds and my $24/hr elsewhere

      ~JD~

      Umm, okay. Whatever floats you boat I guess. 

  7. Still plugging away on the project. Hoping to have some body work done before posting. Needless to say this may be a one time build with all the work involved. And still, the collection remains a mess. 

  8. New things coming in the future! 

    The Brick Village Emergency (my company) Quick Response Tanker (QRT), my giant*** rescue, '92 Dash engine, and major updates to my tower ladder (changed look of outriggers, made 'em functional, made elevators work, etc.). Expect these to come within the next week!

      Not sure how I missed this status, but nice! Can't wait to see them!

  9. Well, it's been steady progress on my build but nothing photo worthy just yet. Really need to organize my collection though, spent way to much time digging through parts. On another note, it seems like the city was going crazy today, 2 officers shot, a barricaded subject in a near by gas station, my neighbor was in a car accident and the store next to my work had an attempted robbery. What the heck is going on?

  10. Been working steady on a project and have some decent progress but nothing solid yet. Hope to have something ready by Saturday to show.

  11. Some point in the future I plan on ordering some Kenworth/Pierce engines

      ~JD~

      Nice. Looking for an off-road type of engine to serve the rural zones.

  12. Finally got some time to pull out the bricks again! I've got 10 days off from college so hopefully I can put something together so Mike isn't hogging all the gallery glory! 😉 Lol I've also been remind that my collection is extremely unorganized, so I have a side project now as well.
