Probably an entertainer tour.  When we went to see the Stones at the Key Arena in Seattle, there were about 8 Prevosts in a compound on the site.  The band probably flies to the next show while the crew travels with the gear.

Wow!  I had a similar experience just yesterday.  Was sitting on my front porch looking down the road and here come this long line of fire trucks and emergency vehicles .... and then I smelled smoke.

I was in Ohio and saw an AWESOME sight!  About ten minutes prior, I was surrounded by thousands of motorcyclist looking to be participating in a rally or something.  (Being a motorcyclist myself, this is not an unusual sight for me to see.)  Seeing on a gas station marquee, "Welcome 9-11 Tribute Riders," and it being April 9th, I thought that was unusual.  Anyways, back to the story!  I started seeing lots of people standing on the overpasses waiting for something.  All of a sudden I saw something I will never forget.  There was a convoy led by about a dozen motorcyclists, hundreds of police cars, ambulances, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles all with their lights flashing!  In the middle of all of the vehicles was a semi hauling some precious cargo on it's flatbed trailer.  There was two 22 foot long I-beam sections of the World Trade Center.  They were draped with a huge American flag!!  These two pieces were on their way to Indianapolis for a 9-11 Memorial.  Turns out there were over 11,000 Motorcyclists in that ride!  Most AWESOME thing I have ever seen on the road.   

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Not the same thing at all but a few months age there was a funeral procession for a police officer killed in the line of duty.  It took almost four fours for the procession to pass with police cars from as far as a thousand miles away.

It put a lump in my throat and a pain in my heart that will likely never go away.
