Many years ago someone gave me copy of a VHS tape of JAKES of Las Vegas moving a gold retort to Utah. It showed all the trials and tribulations to navigate over passes and under passes during the move.
I am a Life member pf Smith and Wesson Collectors and a group of us meet a an antique gun show in Las Vegas. I was introduced to member Bruce Rogers, found out he lived in Las Vegas and I asked what he did for a living.
He replied that he worked for JAKES and I asked what he did he told me he was driver.
I told him about the VHS tape and he smiled and told me I was the driver!
We were invited to his condo and on the wall was a panoramic photo of the whole rig, about 4 feet long.
We really live in small world.

It is always cool when you meet someone like that. It really is a small world. Pretty neat that you got invited to his condo and got to see the photo.

Thats cool.

JAKES has one of the best logos in the business, and have done some interesting jobs.
