With a week or less until the issues will start hitting the stores, I thought I would post a "heads up" about this profile,
in case anyone happens to come across the March/April 2015 issue of Road King Magazine over the next few months.

So, if you happen to stop at a TA Travel Center or a Petro Stopping Center almost anywhere in North America, check
for a FREE copy of the March/April 2015 issue of Road King Magazine, usually right inside the doors, as you enter.

At this point, I still do not know if the D Rex will make the cover of this magazine issue or not, but it is certainly the
feature article for this issue. Some of my other projects will be mentioned (and maybe a few photos), but Road King
wanted to focus on the D Rex. Although the photo shoot was done this Winter (and it was pretty cold), we had not
had our 20"+ snow storm yet, so you can still see the bare ground and a little ice, here and there.

For those of you not near a TA Travel Center or a Petro Stopping Center, the article and photos should be posted on
the Road King Magazine website and on their Social Media pages by March 1, 2015. Some links posted below.

I will post some additional details and a few Behind the Scenes photos of the photo shoot once the issue is released.

With the March/April 2015 issues of Road King Magazine on their way to a fueling stop near most of you,
I thought I would post a PDF version of the article here first, so everyone here can get a preview.

Other than spelling my last name wrong (even after a proof-read was offered) as well as a few minor details
not lining up events in my time-line, and a change of focus away from D Rex only, the article turned out OK.

The photo shoot was several hours long, in very cold temps, with the photographer having to swap out his
batteries often, for his camera and remote flashes. With over 100 photos taken, they decided on only four.

Attaching preview PDF below of the article and the photos selected. And No, D Rex did not make the cover.

Attaching a few photos from the early part of the photo shoot, with the great cloud background, and the supplemental lighting and flash units.

I will add more photos, next week, from later in the photo shoot.

Hopefully, I will have a copy of the magazine by that time too.

Well, after some last minute discussions, it appears that a name corrected version will be appearing on the Road King website (soon).

Once I receive the name corrected version in PDF form, I will post that in this thread as well.

No word yet if additional photos from the photo shoot will be included with the online version of the article. We shall see.

More behind-the-scenes photos from later in the photo shoot are attached below.

Thanks Dermot. Although it was cold and partly cloudy, we still had fun with the photo shoot.

As for the article ... the name corrections are made and the corrected version will be on the website as well.

FYI, attaching a copy of the cover of the March/April 2015 issue, for reference,
in case someone is looking at a TA Travel Center or Petro Stopping Center for
the issue with my DeLorean Madness article. Note: I highlighted the title of
the article near the top left corner of the cover of the issue (attached).

Other than the use of Great Scott ! in the title, to catch the reader's attention,
there are almost no other Back to the Future references in the article.
