Aluminum Sided Stick Trailers
They’ve been building these for decades. They’re tough, less expensive and have been getting the job done for generations. Although not quite as light, they aren’t all tanks either.

Thunder Over Louisville
A listener mentioned getting reservations to camp at this year’s Thunder Over Louisville. That leads us to ask the obvious question, What is Thunder Over Louisville? In searching for answers we found several events starting with Thunder in, on and around. It all revolves around 2 weeks of festivities that lead up to the Kentucky Derby.
