Well here it is November of 2022, 22 has been a great year for new friends, but a bad year all round. I moved into a small town

 and cable is 3 blocks away, so I ordered Hughsnet worst ISP IN THE WORLD my internet speed is .067 Mbs. I have been in the

hospital for 6 weeks and now doing well. Paid 1100.00 to repair the trike after a blow out, just one thing after another.

The Cracker lost several wonderful reporters to bigger jobs in the SCV. Today I have no internet thanks to a crap company,

so John is filling in to do the Cracker, I have to drive to town to use the Library ISP, THEREFORE I WANT TO THANK JOHN,

FOR ALL HE DOES FOR THE MEC-CAV FAMILY THAT MANY OF YOU DO NOT KNOW. WITHOUT BROTHER POLO THERE IS NO CRACKER.

John Polo, I love ya brother, thank you for all you do.

I would like to thank all of our reporters from the Confederation for their contributions to the Cracker.

WEBMASTER'S COMMENTS

First of all I want to refer to our editor Wess Frank, I am happy to know that he is well after leaving the hospital,

 I know how much Wess loves the Cracker and how much he suffers every month for sending me the work,

knowing that we need download speed of 50 to 100 Mbps (as a minimum) to work as a calm, my PC for example

 has a speed of 250 Mbps, is impossible to work efficiently with .067 Mbs it s a PC running slower than a snail on strike.

I hope everything is resolved quickly Wess, and that we can continue to work as we have done over the years.

 Without Wess , reporters and webmaster, there is no Cracker, because we're a confederate team.

Please allow me to return to the subject  of sending reports, I receive more than half of the reports on the last day, the work

 is more difficult for me. If you could send the reports a little before the deadline, it would allow me to work more

calmly and better. Thank y'all for your collaboration.

ANOTHER NOREATEAST FLORIDA SCV RECEIVES MECH-CAV SOLEMN OATH

A beautiful, crisp Saturday morning brings another new SCV member, Cody "The Kid" Kidson, into the Mechanized Cavalry's band-

of-brothers.  The northeast regional area leader, Jason Montes, administered the oath and awarded the SCVMC patch and certificate.

  Mech-Cav members in attendance:  Terry Simmons, Billy Feagle, Randy Byrd (welcome back Randy), Tommy Ezell,

 and Jimmy Edwards.  Also attending were various family members.  "The Kid" is eager to get his motor runnin, head out

 on the highway, start lookin for adventure and deal with whatever comes his way. 

 (I think he may have been listening to Steppenwolf or seen the movie Easy Rider - lol.) 

FLORIDA STATE CAPTAIN CALLS FOR GROUP LUNCHEON

Gator Joe's famous biker restaurant in Ocklawaha, Florida (the small town where the infamous Ma Barker Gang

was killed by the FBI in 1935 -- considered the longest shootout in FBI's history) was chosen for the noon rendezvous. 

 Arriving from various areas of Florida, the initial meet-and-greet in the parking lot by longtime, non-seen members

was welcoming.  As we moved into the restaurant our entertainment of food, drink and conversation became our

highlighting party hour.  When time concluded for departure, we re-gathered outside for the farewell group picture. 

 An enormous big thanks goes to Captain David King for bringing us together for this State Mech-Cav biker day.  

For those that don't realize it, Captain King's time is not only devoted being our ardent State Mech-Cav leader,

he also serves as a SCV Camp Cmdr, Florida State Division LT Cmdr, attends UDC functions (wife is a member),

 holds down a full-time job, and is a dedicated family man.  FROM THE ENTIRE MECH-CAV MEMBERS OF  FLORDIA,

 WE THANK YOU SIR FOR YOUR SERVICE.
