Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

CIRQUE D'HIVER, ROERMOND, HOLLAND, 1994

This was a four day date we did the first Winter in Europe, & probably the most pleasant date I ever did. We stayed in a hotel,(with a fabulous brunch buffet every morning), meals served in a dining room in the theater between shows, & two shows a day to standing room only crowds.
It was my first experience driving a short wheel base truck, pulling a cage wagon that had front wheels, unlike our, "wiggle wagon" double semis, it tracked as straight as an arrow, even at high speeds on the autobahn. When we arrived in Holland in the night, our three truck & wagon convoy halted on a narrow road, in the countryside for about ten minutes. Being new there I was curious, but decided to stay in the cab & let the other drivers handle what ever the hold up was. When we arrived in town I asked one of the drivers what the problem was, & he said there was no problem. The local Circus Fans met us to escort us through town to the theater.
