Big machines make for big fun
"Are you ready to sit in the driver's seat of a large dump truck, cement truck, road grader or 170-ton mobile crane? Or get behind the flight controls of a C-140 Air Force military transport plane or captain a Huey Army helicopter" asks Joe Covelli, who at his wife's urging founded the Touch-A-Truck for Kids event. Since its start in 2004 -- and held every other year since -- Touch-A-Truck's reputation and turnout has expanded. This year it will include at least 50 machines.
