    3. Joshua O.

      Joshua O.

      I've been doing pretty good @~JD~! Sounds like you're having fun lol

      I'm just sort of flitting through @Edward O. Haven't built anything in a long time tbh

      @Edward O. Nothing yet, going to do some work in my soon to be Lego room to help things along. Hope to have it up and running by summer or at least the end of summer.

      @Joshua O. That's good to hear! Yeah, dealing with the regular college stuff, not the fun fire stuff.

  2. So... Sorry about the status spam, but this was too pretty not to :P https://www.instagram.com/p/BLCjbxWjnG0/

      Lol, I wish I had done that at a spot where I could have blazed Code 3 instead of Code 2

  3. Been a while since I was here last. :( My CVPI has gotten in the way of Legos, I'm currently shooting for the most hated Vic owner ever :P https://www.instagram.com/p/BKZbKFjDZWU/

      Once I join my local FD, my (hopefully) truck will have more lights than I know what to do with.

      Thanks Joshua. Only 2.5 long years til I can join.

  4. Wow, the death toll from the Pulse Nightclub terrorist attack keeps going up. Scary to think I live less than 15 minutes from the place. . .

      Sad to here, I was spending a few days on a national guard base and was away from the news, stay safe out there man.

  5. Wow, didn't realize how outdated my profile was; I think I got everything xD Guess that's what happens when you're in lurker mode. . . :ph34r:

      It definitely looks strange; I ought to take a better pic of the situation. Using a house does seem to be rather popular down here, OCFR Station 86 is a house, as are a few other OCFR stations (can't remember which ones, unfortunately)

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Thinking about it, station 11 here in clay runs out of a house. A rather small house at that, the garage fits the rescue and the engine and brush rig are parked across the street in the VFD's station. I never liked the idea though, the accommodations kind of work but the sleeping arranges probably suck, gear storage is inadequate and vehicle housing leaves a lot to be desired. It works for a temporary solution but not a permanent one.

    4. Joshua O.

      Joshua O.

      Exactly. 86 isn't as bad, they have a covered parking area for the engine, brush truck, and occasional medic unit as well as climate-controlled 'shed' (it's not really a shed, but I can't think of a better word for it) for gear storage; but still. . .

  6. Wow! The Force Awakens is already at $766 million and is on pace to be the biggest theater release ever. Avatar's about to lose its record. . .

      I went and saw it on Tuesday.  All I am going to say is that it was excellent.

    4. Joshua O.

      Joshua O.

      @Paulo R. Very true. . .

      @HenryH BCFD Cool! I agree: it was indeed excellent, very well acted IMO

  7. Ah ha! Finally got the cover photo to work! And yes, that is my CVPI :P

      Absolutely, David; nothin's better than the CVPI pricewise! It's even funnier to fly up on people driving down the interstate in the left lane; they scatter like you're running Code 3! ;) What color is your Vic?

      Tan. It was a detective's vehicle or something, a '99 with only 90k miles, so wasn't used much. Has a spot and the bumper still (both of which have already come in handy).

    4. Joshua O.

      Joshua O.

      Very nice! Mine's a 2008 with 102k miles; it was a patrol cruiser for the Saint Louis County Sheriff's Department in Minnesota. I have a Setina PB400 push bumper on backorder, supposed to be shipped in a week or 2.

      Sorry about the late reply, I'm in Massachusetts working for a crane inspection company.

  8. On this date in 2014 I made the decision to join a LEGO Emergency Services forum called Emergency Bricks! I'd found while searching for LEGO fire apparatus. Thank you for a great first year, and here's to the second!

      No; not really. I mainly build E-Ones; but I'm amenable to trying out another manufacturer.

      Then try a seagrave walkin or a combination rescue (my fave personally)

      Alright, thanks!
