The trailer is all loaded and tomorrow I'll finish setting up at the Buckley Old Engine Show for my last show.
After this show the tractors will be taken down to my sons place in southern Indiana.

I have mixed emotions about this whole thing.
One the one hand, I'm really glad that we are finally going to be able to move down by our son.
On the other hand, I am saddened that this will be the last opportunity to attend the Buckley show.

We have been going to Buckley since 2001 and have really enjoyed it.
They have made us feel very welcomed and we have met some really nice people at the shows.

My wife and I are both going to miss it !

I can understand the emotions, Ray! Maybe you can find a good place near your son to show the tractors! Have a great time!

I think Buckley will miss you just as much, if not more, Ray.

Ray, there's a good show in Osgood, Indiana, not too far(31 miles) north of you.  I went to it once, and it was a pretty nice one.  The one at Evansville is very nice(160 miles from you)!  Then there's the big one at Lanesville, IN, not far from Louisville (60 miles from you).  Been to all of them myself, once each.

There's something about those friends you see maybe once or twice a year a the show.  I know I would miss some of the ones I have met locally.

And one at Elnora in Daviess County.

What....no camper? must be close to the house?

 

Madison is beautiful city, very old. I've been on offroad rallies there, surprising how many dirt roads still exist down there that people use on regular basis.

 

I think there is a show in Brookville Ind also which is probably 1 1/2 to 2 hrs pulling trailer.

We are going to be moving to the Madison, Indiana area.

that is about an hour and a half away from me. the Evansville show will be a good one for you. we also have a show at Thresherman Park in Boonville In. twice a year. the next one is the 2nd weekend in October. this should be a big one its warrick countys 200th anniversary and Thresherman Parks 50th anniversary so they are wanting all the tractors they can get.
