Pepperell Crank Up

Pepperell MA        12 July 2009

Sometimes using a GPS gadget gets you to your destination with minimum fuss and bother.  But other times it turns into an adventure as was the case today.  I started out and programmed the Magellen along the way and asked for the most direct path.  It took me to the top of I190 north of Worcester MA and then on every pottin' little back country road it could find in its' database.  But eventually I arrived in Pepperell.

I found Norm Jones and Russ Steeves under Norm's canopy set up the boys on folding chairs and set about seeing the show.

If you recognize an engine or display and would like to add some information about the photo please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to update the page.
