Make mine a Camel….

jet_packTaking in the US Army Transportation museum in Ft. Eustis, Va. last weekend (you have to love those avro_carArmy names). The Motor Transport Corps. used camels in the late 1800’s to transport equipment and supplies, invented the jet pack, the first of many hovercrafts, an actual flying saucer designed by Avro, the same Canadian company that invented, for those young enough to know, the Avro Arrow.

Check out their website.  This was a fun, hands on and quite educational tour. After this visit we hit the BK diner on the Army Base before heading home.
