I'm all for it. Just probably won't make it there unless I fire up the Ford and head that way now.

I would love to go,but way too far for me.Sorry Daniel.


I'm in the same boat as Maynard. That really looks like a blast! I'm hoping that sometime I'll get a chance to go to one of those, even if it's just to watch. I'm not sure if they have them here. Maybe I can get down to one of the big tractor shows in PA sometime!

Maybe we can plan a road trip, I come thruogh Tulsa and get you and the Ford. Then head on over to Daniel's to play for day. Would make a long weekend, but would be worth it. What do you think Kenny?

Might have to think real seriously on that! That's quite a weekend trip. Would be fun though.

I would have to get up your way Thursday evening and leave out early Friday. We could get a room close to Daniel's, 20 minutes away if I remember right. Get out to his place early Sat. morning and give him a hand getting the other folks in. Stay through Sunday, drive back Monday, I would be home Tuesday sometime.. :thumbs:

Time and distance would be TOO big a a problem for. Map Quest says it's about 6.5 Hrs driving time to get there.

However, gas prices might deter me, since if I came it would be in the motorhome that gets a whopping 7 MPG.

I guess it would depend on what the gas prices do this coming summer/fall.

It is something I would like to do though.

Boy, that is a very nice offer Daniel. Any way I map it, it comes out to around 12 hours one way. I wish I could attend, but that's too far out of my reach at this time.

I hope it comes together though. Good luck.

Sounds like a wonderful plan Daniel. I know that many of the plow days are too far for you to travel with your busy schedule, so why not have one at your place. I know that there will be many members close to you that will be plowing. Hope to see the interest keep growing. Good luck.

There WILL be a plow day, just not sure of the date yet. It will also depend on when we have to empty our manure pit, as these acres is where it is all spread. Even if we did have to spread before a plow day, we only cover about 1/2 of the 70 acres. If need be, I could have the plow day at Dad's, where we have another 70 acres. Those acres are shelled corn acres though, so lots more trash to clog plows. We would have a much easier time plowing the fields where we chop silage. I will keep you guys updated, but it may be a while before a date is set.

I am looking at October 27th as my plow day date. Let me know if there are any plow days going on that day close to Ky.

Thanks for putting it on, Daniel!

Too dangerous for me. Not just the 578 miles, but I would be shot if I came home with another Unico.
