My entry for this weeks theme, ShootDownFriday, is from an annual event that is held in Dunedin New Zealand called ‘Special Rigs for Special Kids’ which was started by Greg Inch in response to something he heard was happening in the UK. The event teams up drivers and their ‘big rigs’ and special needs children and their families for a day of events and a ride in a big rig. I was lucky enough to be asked to take photographs of this event and in this capture I am atop the New Zealand Fire Services ‘snorkel’, see shadow at right to get an idea of what it looks like.

Thanks for taking the time to read the description Peter.
The event is still running and they get more drivers wanting to be a part of it ever year.

The reason it looks like chaos is because this is one of Dunedin airports carparks, trucks and specialised vehicles don't fit into a carpark very well; as well and the fact that there were cars already parked there.
There were over 300 vehicles at the event in this year and this is only a portion of them.
Thanks for the many comments on my postings Pam.
