Today my wife took our two little ones to the great Military Heritage Collection of North Texas, where they have a simply smashing collection of military vehicles, weapons, and uniforms. The museum is run by a great group of people who really want visitors to interact with the museum. During my first visit there a few months ago I was sincerely overwhelmed with the direct access I was granted to everything. I was able to touch weapons, climb into vehicles, and pick up various items. The museum is especially interesting in that one of the primary curators is a Brit named Mark, who still retains his London accent. As as result, the collection has a rather expansive commonwealth section, including a fully driveable FV433 Abbot SPG! While I've been to the museum before, unfortunately the demands of work meant this trip was without dad, so mom and the two kids had all the fun. Rachel did take a few good photos to stoke my jealousy. Here is little Ottavio doing some combat driving in a Vietnam era Jeep. Clearly Serena is shirking her duties on the M60 machine gun. I think the fully removable axe is a nice touch as well. Ottavio was also had a ball commanding the Abbot. He returned home with an indelible smile telling me he had "pewed" a lot of bad guys at the museum. This photo show AFVs in the way I like them best; with muddy tracks! I'll certainly be visiting the museum again in the future, and more than likely participating in their program where one can actually drive the Abbot! This will most certainly include photos and video.
