Tim McGraw is a Pi Kappa Alpha from Northeast Louisiana University (now University of Louisiana at Monroe.) His video for down on the farm (like 10 yrs ago) included many active members on the Pike fire engine (does any other chapter own a fire engine?...I always wondered what that was about.) The same year he built a huge wooden deck on the back of the double wide trailer they called their chapter house.

There's a thread kind of close to the top of the Pike forum where they're discussing which chapters have a truck.
