Well after what seems to be forever we are leaving here in an hour to head up to visit Will (IamSherwood) in Canada to pick up the Bush Hog HD-12 and some other stuff. Dad and I are both going up. Will was very generous for storing the Bush Hog for me for so long even though I think his Masseys had their way with her. It is going to be nice to get to meet Will in person and would be great to meet some others along the way but time would be a factor. We are also picking up a Bolens that dad bought up in New York on the way home.

If all goes well we should be home sometime Saturday evening. :D I am going to take the camera along and take as many pics as I can of the trip and I want to get some pics of Will's collection. I am also hoping the border crossing goes smooth as can be and that we don't have to surrender to a full cavity search. LOL

Enjoy the trip up north George. It sure would be nice to meet you guys but I'm afraid N.S. is a bit out of your way. I'm hoping to get down to PA one of these years to take in some of the tractor shows. I'm sure Will is going to show you some Canadian hospitality. Are you bringing your skates. It sounds like you could still play hockey on the pond where the contest tractor is sitting.

I better get out there, and put all the parts back on that I borrowed. LOL

They've got a long day ahead of them. Hope it goes well and safely.

We just went through Dansville, NY on interstate 390. I drove to Bath, NY and we exchanged seats. Once we get close to the border I am turning the phone off because the roaming rates are crazy.

Good luck and Godspeed on your roadtrip. George. You can still get that photo you wanted of the gang with the mower on the pond, does Will have a boat? Or you can always use photoshop or some other kind of editing program to put you guys in the pic.

Oh yeah, I forgot about those roaming charges.
Don't bother calling me from Barrie, as I had asked. Just show up.
But call if you have any troubles, and you want me to send the Mounties.

See ya later.
