Adam seems to think we need a yearly "weekend" away out east. Last year we went to Pennsylvania for the two Little Giants and this year we were going farther east - New Jersey and Connecticut!
We left Friday morning from Wisconsin and stopped that evening in Canton, Ohio to visit some friends we don't see too often. Went to dinner at Two Fat Guys BBQ and it was delicious! Left super early Saturday morning towards New Jersey.
In New Jersey, we delivered a tractor Adam sold and learned that we cannot pump our own fuel. Weird!
Delivery was a success, met another GTTALK member, and back on the road to Connecticut!
Funny how one needs to be 1000 miles away to pick up something with a serial tag from where I grew up and where Adam and I live! Big thanks to grnlark for allowing us to purchase it, helping it get loaded, and showing us his collection. Awesome group of tractors and great place to work on them!
But it was quickly time to get back on the road and start heading west again. Stayed in Wilkes Barre, PA for the night. A shower and a comfortable bed felt great!
Sunday morning - let's go home! Well, a road trip wouldn't be complete without a little compromise. This little guy needed to catch a ride to WI from Ohio, so we picked him up!
Awesome dog, so if anybody is looking to adopt a 5-6 year old companion, he's your guy! He slept 95% of the way and didn't make one sound! His foster mom picked him up from our house when we got home and she'll get him in better shape and hopefully into a forever home soon. He had a rough start and was saved from a FL shelter before he would have been put down. Couldn't believe how gentle and calm he was!
Back in WI! Finally!
But we're both glad to be home. We got the Red-E tucked in for the night, but after we both took it for a ride. Took me a bit to figure out the dual transmissions!
We will definitely enjoy this new tractor. Glad it is back in Richfield and looking forward to taking it to shows and learning more about it. We even have a good-size tractor show in September in Richfield to bring it to!
Thanks for reading and looking at the pictures!
I need to upload a video of Adam driving it, but here are the pictures that grnlark took if you didn't see the classified ad.
