Just got done watching the weather on the news and it looks like its going to be a pretty wet start tomorrow.    3/4" of rain expected thru friday evening according to what they said.    Hopefully the ground is dry enough to soak it in right away.  I'll still be there in the morning, getting loaded up tonight to pull out in the morning.

Yes cash works for supporter dues. I usually ask that the person remind me through pm on the site when they get home. I usually remember but I still like having someone remind me just in case.

Speaking of hats. I got the new order picked up on my way home and they turned out terrific. Will have some of each color / style with us at the show. I put as many as I could fit in the one container.

Does anyone have a stopwatch they could bring along? It is the one thing I forgot to get. If nobody has one I will pick one up on the way tomorrow morning.

 

We are all loaded up. Looks like Sanford and Son. I need to get helper springs for the truck or air bags. Took the truck and trailer down to get gas and the trailer brakes are not working. Truck is doing a good job stopping it but it bugs the crap out of me that they are not working. Not sure if it is the control box or the wiring. I think after we get back from plow day I am going to flip the trailer upside down and redo all the wiring.

I've got the stop-watch.  Just remind me.  

 

I've been loaded up for 3 days now!  Ready to hit the road.  Should be there around noon!

You don't happen to have one on your phone do you George?  My G'z One has one on it. 

 

Be careful without trailer brakes on that load George.  We don't wanna hear about you on the news tomorrow.  Be safe all you guys driving considerable distances.  I am loaded and ready to roll after I drop the daughter off at daycare around 8:15.  I will probably be there about 8:45.  4 tractors, 2 plows, my sleeve hitch disk( which probably dont have anough weight to do anything productive) and a snowblower I sold.  Gonna take the back way and give the old truck a workout in the morning.  Lots of hills and and turns.

Will suitcase weights fit on the disc?  If so, I could bring a couple extra... If you give me a turn...  :D

Its one of the sleeve hitch stlye single gang.  I have some wheel weights I thought about bringing along to see if they would help or not.  See if I can bolt them on or strap them fast somehow.  You are more than welcome to take a go with it on your tractor if you want  or I can put it on one of mine.  My buddy didnt get to pick up the plow that he is going to give me so I thought about putting the disk on one of my tractors and the plow on the other.  My dads one tractor is on the trailer and his plow will likely stay on it.  Just not sure which tractor I wanna put the plow on yet.  I wanna try the massey in the plow but I didnt get a chance to test it so I dont know how it will lift yet.

 

I'd say see you all tomorrow but at this point its allready friday.  LOL!!!!
