    Post pics of your tailgate "rig"

    Thought I'd start up a fun thread. A few weeks ago I posted a blog about our tailgating RV we named HaRV. If you have pics post 'em here and any stories you have about your tailgate bus, RV, or whatever you have. From some of the people I've meet over the years it seems like nearly every one of them had some story about how they came about getting their tailgating rig. One group told me they one they have now was actually their 2nd RV because they "outgrew" the original one they bought and wanted something newer and bigger.

    Especially if you're telling everyone you "tailgate" with her.

    Re: Post pics of your tailgate "rig"

    My tailgate rig is in my sig. I hate uploading pics to this site, because it always has to be to an internet site, and I don't want to use facebook, myspace, etc. It's named Pancho Villa, essentially because my brother thought that sounded funny while he was drunk, the night we bought it. We all concured, the name stuck. We acquired it for $400 bucks from a guy who lived across the street from our farm shop in McIntire IA (up in beautfiul Mitchell County), and it had actually been owned by the county prior to him owning it, and they had used it to haul drunks into the county jail in Osage from the surrounding small town bars. It seemed like a fitting history for an ISU tailgate rig. We left the official county seal on it when we painted it up, to represent. Lot's of good times with that thing...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I hope I'm not being rude but could you tell me what you paid for the RV and maybe how much you figure you will put into it (paint job, etc.)?

    You can also "Go Advanced" and include it as an attachement. Someone had to clue me in on that one... and I'm sure people rue the day he did.... but yeah a lot easier

    Who has seen the "Mad Max," HUGE black dualie pickup? It has Cyclone plates and a few other Clones things on it, also a bunch of people hanging out of it. I saw it driving on University Blvd a few games ago between the stadium and the student lot, it made a few laps. It was awesome.

    Come by and say "hi" sometime. We try and get the same general spot every week. I usually have an Arnaud jersey on and an ISU dew rag. My home town/county are close to Rochester, about 45 miles sw. I actually went to high school at Lourdes.

    I am thinking you possibly are thinking of the truck I attached, as well as the one found at this link

    Yes, this truck is awesome. I want one.
