We hope everyone had a great time at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS). We’re all trying to recuperate from hours of walking around and probably eating too much, but we’re glad we were able to see some of our old friends and make lots of new ones. It won’t take much time to get the video edited and posted so watch for that soon. We have lots of pictures and will try to get some loaded every few days.
We really enjoyed talking to all the Western Star fans while we were there. The kids seemed to have the most fun climbing in the trucks and wearing their hats proudly.
Everyone had their cameras out. It seemed like a real Hollywood premiere with all the flashes going off during the autograph sessions and fans taking snapshots of the Western Star trucks in the booth. You had to see the incredible paint jobs on the trucks with your own eyes to understand how much work goes into that process. They were really amazing.
We hope everyone had a chance to meet the celebrities that performed or signed autographs in the booth. This lucky couple was able to have their picture taken with Miss Willie Brown who performed a great set then stayed to meet everyone. I hope they get to see it here on Star Nation.
Western Star had some great merchandise that you could buy right there in the booth. They had everything from travel bags and belt buckles to water bottles and beer Koozies. If you missed your opportunity, you can always visit the Serious Gear store online.
Finally a shout-out to our friend Leon who was kind enough to stop and chat with us. Leon, we enjoyed meeting you and thanks for the picture! Travel safe back to Norway, and hope to hear from you soon.
