Looks good, they just need to get a good writer to finish this.

Who won the naming contest?

An old ass Deuce? Seriously? You can buy 90's 5 tons all day long on GS and you're gonna have a 19-oh-gawd duece representing military trucks at a FEMA camp!

:nerner:

If you need pics of 5 tons...I know a guy ;)

I don't know if I mentioned it, but Escaping Home almost hit the New York Times Best Seller list. It doesn't really mean much, but that's cool as hell. So get your preorder and let anyone you know that it's up for preorder so they can too. I want to see if we can actually hit that list.

Remember, when the powers that be set off an EMP to kill the power, they took most of the newer stuff out with it. Whatever vehicles they could get that run (even an old Korean/Vietnam Deuce) would have to do.

@PatriotMuso: You can read it on a regular smartphone, tablet or whatever from the Amazon store.
Or if AA is nice, maybe he'll send you out a print version.

Which reminds me, I saw the video that Spirko put out of you at the convention where you were passing out copies of Escaping, but I couldn't find the others on Amazon in print. Buh??? Were the first two just digital, and the third one picked up so much steam that they made a print version, or did I miss them somewhere?

90's mechanical 5-tons would operate just fine, and are still used on many bases. Also, Sarge is riding in humvee's to the Camp, so modern military vehicles aren't totally disabled.

I remember seeing many of them out at APG when I did my stint at the Ordinance Library back in the 90's, still sitting in the 5000's Quonset buildings and still being maintained. Granted, that was 16 years ago, but those things are hard to move on the civilian market at auction, so they're probably still in storage.

Could be the grade of electronics used in certain vehicles. I have held some avionics circuit boards ( lots of shielding components ) and a highly protected "personality chip" on the mother boards and even the new one are heavy as hell. Most if not all of the high end lab instruments I have worked on have very light circuit boards in them. (throw away circuits) and the interconnect boards only have a gold "flash" as a connection. Think about how much a good cell phone or radio weighs and you get the picture.

I gifted the first three to someone for Christmas, so I'll be buying myself a copy of book four--and one for them as well. Love to pass these on.

Very much looking forward to this new book in the series. We have been listening to them via book on tape and feel like we know the characters. Can't wait for more. Growing accustomed to Duke Fontaine's voice.

Well AA Tomorrow's the big day. I will order book 4 first thing in the morning. Kinda thought If a person was to drive say around 1560 miles to BF Wyoming a guy might get an early copy or at least his other 3 books signed. BUT NOOOOO. Just saying :banghead: . Hope they sale out and have to print more. TFK

Yea tfk, dont expect things that would make AA a super cool guy. I waited almost a year from when he gave me books in person and then stool them from me before they showed back up.

I just got book 4 today. Have a few pages to finish in the book I was reading until this came out. I am looking forward to being able to read it a bunch at one time. Great to know it's a quick read, and sad to know it's a quick read. Won't last too long.

AA, Why did you have the group eat Thad's body to stave off starvation in chapter 25?

AA - just finished tonight. Now, how long do I have to wait until the next one? You write a darn good series of books, knowledge and a family to like and you know who the bad guys and good guys are.

When can we expect to see volume 5?

Have read all the books and enjoy them....can't wait for #5.

However 3 and 4 looked to have several gramatical errors not caught during editing and some people names changed during the story.
1. Rene's (Taylor's friend) father....went from Tom when first mentioned to John when they had the cookout when Reggie and LeAnn got shot
2. When Sarge, Danny and Jeff meet up with the guard at the swimming hole....the National Guard LT seems to get his name changed back and forth a couple times in a few pages....from Don (IIRC) to Shane.

Ya, well, most of us can barely remember our own names, much less others. We just enjoy the story and don't get too excited about minor things.

I know you all have got and probably read book 4 by now. I ordered mine on the 24th from Amazon. Benn watching my tracking . It is finally in the hands of Fed Ex as of yesterday. Looked last night they tried to deliver it but no one home. WTF. Left a big note on the door today LEAVE PACAGE. My UPS guy leaves everything on the porch but not FED EX. Starting to piss me off just a little. :angryplode:

1. There's another book put out by the other side called "Rene has two daddies"
2. Shane is Don's middle name. Lt. Donald Shane (lastnameescapesme)

Thanks Chris, I'll have to go back over it. You wouldn't believe what goes into the editing process but they can still make mistakes.
