Some of you friends and/or fugitives from MTF and others who are members of some of the mechanical/welding sites surely remember "KoO" (King of Obsolete) aka "Joey Barnes" and the great stories of life in "The Great White North", Cat trains and other cold steel adventures around Lynn Lake, Manitoba and lots of other places in the world. I was quite surprised to see a promo of his appearance on "Ice Road Truckers" coming up this Sunday, July 14 on the History Channel.
Anyone who loves machinery, cold weather, great story telling ability and just plain adventure should check out his website also...
...for some enjoyable reading. Whatever or however you think of the show IRT's itself, I know you'll enjoy Joey's segment. He's a great guy and the real deal!
(Perhaps someone who's fingers wouldn't fall off by posting on MTF could give them a heads up...? "Thansk"!
