Am I the only one in the TX Panhandle area that collects Garden Tractors? Never seem to run into anyone at the shows. I went to Plainview, TX show last month and I had the only GTs there. Just trying to get some guys interested in the shows here. There is a show in Amarillo, TX and those guys really welcome the GTs. They let me jon right in the games there last year and I even won the candy toss. Drop me a line if you are in this area. I passed out a lot GTTalk business cards at the Plainview show.

I'm sure I could make "Amarillo by morning" :bounce:

Dang, there aught to be a song in there somewhere. That's about a 1,200 mile round trip for you Brian. When I get that far north I start getting cold chills, Was up there one year in Feb. and I swear there's nothing between Amarillo and the North Pole but a 2 strand barbed wire fence and the top strand must have been down. It was colder than my ex-wife's heart.

Seems like some of these folks like anonimity for some unknown reason-I've stumbled onto a few here just by accident, but only a couple had anything worth showing. If I keep traveling TX-AND can ever get something built I'll join in- This month I've been to Seminole, Abilene, leaving for Bridgeport Mon and back to Abilene June 20-May have to buy a TX hat.

Brian
It is a bit of a haul, I have often thought about coming to Fredericksburg show one of these days. Would it be worth the trip?

Gary, I've never been to it, but I will check into it, it's only an hour or less from me. I need to find out when it is.

I've never been to Texas but from what I gather it's pretty wide open as far as farms go. Maybe in other areas small tractors either walkbehinds or riders where more suited for small truck farmers or homeowners . Love to hear more about Texas , Al

I have been where you are. The TX Panhandle is pretty spread out, if I could ever convence my wife to head to East TX we would be out of here. I love the Hill country.

Al, I'm not a Texan-a Kansan from Kentucky living in Arkansas, but 2 good things about Texas is that you may need a scope to see your neighbor, but if you make the trip to meet him, he'll make you welcome.
