On Sunday, June 10th, I saw a guy hauling a Bush Hog GT on a trailer being towed by a white F-150 going North on I-85. The Bush Hog even had a front scrape blade. That wasnt you by chance was it? In the Greensboro NC area.

That was me. I was coming back from the Evansville Indiana Show and had the HD-12 on the trailer.

Wow! Small world. I was in a black Suburban and was moving pretty fast. I slowed down to take a look and gave you a thumbs up! Then I got off for gas, and wanted to try to catch you so I could look at that Bush Hog one more time, but apparently you had gotten off as well, and I saw you again merging into traffic and I couldnt get over fast enough.

I remember you! Yea.....I got off in to get gas right before the 40/85 split. It is a small world. Good to see another NC member on board.

Oh....I got a case of brain fart on the east/west thing! LOL Anyway, I have a plan for you. Just make a trip plan to Ashville the day before my plow day. Then you'll only have a 323 mile trip to my place! :smilewink:
I'd love to have you up for the plow day, but I certainly understand you not making it too.

Because there are some traveling so far, I will make the fields available for plowing Sunday the 28th also. I won't advertise on my local flyers for 2 days plowing, but want to extend it especially for those making such a long trip. If we get to plow on the 27th, I won't be there until around 10am Sunday morning being I'll be milking my cows, but you'll be welcome to plow any time that morning.

I know..... it was a short trip going out (bush hog to pick up, show to attend, and people to see).....but it was a long trip back!!
I hate that I can not make it....but my "man trip" money has been spent. (when I told my mom what I was heading to Evansville for a GT show.... she said " oh you are going on a man trip"......she was a farm girl but we are talking 60 plus years ago since she was on the farm..... :smile1: I got to got to Evansville that weekend while my wife and daughters were in Atlanta......trust me it was an expensive 3 days.....

Knowing Daniel, it would be a trip worth taking.....if you live with in 4-5 hours and don't attend you are missing a big opportunity!!
