Can't say it was un eventful, but that is another story for later. Great day overall, Lots of
good comments on my tractor display. Lots of good food and music all day. The main event for me
was the races, The white mower was the winner, she was clocked at 51 mph in the short track
distance by the officer with a radar. Pictures and Videos really don't do the event justice, but
here they are.

That was an eariler picture, Here is where I was at. I think they were expecting more big tractors so they placed me in the corner of the lot.

Ok, time to explain this comment "but that is another story for later". Like I said it was a great day, I left for the event at 6:30 am, and had a heck of a time getting the 18' trailer turned around in my drive with out hitting my daughters car or fence. Those three tractors were heavy, the most I could get out of the Ranger was 60 mph on flat straight highway. I loaded up to return around 4:00 pm and headed home. Comming up the drive, I thought I would swing wide to attempt a full circle so I wouldn't need to try and Turn around in the mud. All of a sudden I came to a stop, I looked in the mirror and said All "expletive". Luckly I Didn't hurt the trailer.

Glad you came to a stop and didn't take the fence out.
