Just got back from Daniels plow day and it was great, everything worked out good, even the weather was OK.
Drove 2,226KM, that's 1,383 miles total.
Had a good time, got to plow, meet some more members, sigh the GT TALK banner, eat some good food and even won a Tshirt.
Next yr I'll be there, just let me know when. Anybody who has a garden tractor and a plow should just go, you won't be sorry.
Pictures I took.

You guys had an awesome turnout for being the first year. It is only going to get bigger. Mom and dad just got home not long ago. I am going to try and get all the pics together and get them uploaded and then I need to check out the video dad took and get something edited together and will get that posted as well. It might take me some time depending on what this weather decides to do. They already cancelled school for the kids tomorrow.

Glad that you made it home safely and you made great time Doug! We only beat you by about 2 hours. You must have left at the crack of dawn! We logged a total of 942.5 miles on the trip. We also hit rain just West of Columbus, OH and followed it all the way home.
It was a real pleasure to have met you and I will look forward to seeing you again ASAP!

I was looking forward to it also Brian. I'm sure that our paths will cross eventually though!

I'm gonna put up some pics here too!

I also turned up a souvenir while I was plowing!

One of the other fellows there (sorry I can't remember who), as I was walking back to the fire with the Horse shoe in hand, said "Did your tractor throw a shoe?" I got a pretty good chuckle out of it, so thanks!

We got home not too long ago. Doug had more miles than we did. We only logged a little over 1200 miles. First I want to thank Daniel for hosting the event. You did a wonderful job. I need to also thank your wonderful wife Teresa for helping with the food, and keeping you grounded with all of the worries about the weather.Also want to thank Fred and Denise for their help with the food. Not only as a first time event, but for most plow days, this was a huge success Daniel. I got to plow with your tractor and also Chuck's tractor. My real enjoyment came from seeing so many of the folks from other events and getting to meet so many new members and friends. I'll post some of the pics that I took with my camera. George will post the pics and video that I took with his equipment.

Just arrived home a few minutes ago. That funny squeak, squeak noise as we pulled out of Daniels ?? Ya , it turned out to be a u-joint in an aluminum drive-shaft...ughh ! The cardboard and dry clothes and two boxes of tools and flashlights that were just in case the tractor broke, yep, used'em all ! But we are home safe and would turn right around and do it all over tonight for what a blast ! Daniel you and yours are the best ! You and Fred need to give those womenfolk an extra hug for being such good sports about everything. Somebody else said it but Food, friends (all new to me), and FUN I'll drive a green GT all 376 miles back if that is the only way I can get there next year !
(course Fred would have to take payments, cause I don't have a green one) Folks if you missed this, you just missed it...I can't say enough about what a great time this was....right now I need a BATH and bed. :thumbs:

Reading through all these posts, it sure sounds like it was a huge success.

Congratulations Daniel and family.
I wish i could have made the trip with Doug. Hopefully, next year.

The one thing I noticed, while reading the posts, was that everyone was really happy with
the eats.
Dans plow day.
Daniels plow day.
Denny's plow day.

Hmmm. Time for sponsership??

Daniel, Who's 430 are you on, yours doesn't have 3 PT yet?


The 140 belongs to Dennis McIntosh from southeast Indiana. The 430 is Drew's. These 430's pull like mules! My JBI diesel will as soon as I get the Sundstrand hydro with the 2 speed under it.
