I made a new friend through GTTalk (pops1964) a week or so ago and he invited me to join him in Clayton NC this past weekend for an Antique tractor and car show. This show was actually rather close to me so late Friday afternoon I decided that I'd given my best efforts to school and could take some time off on Saturday. Saturday got off to a rainy start and there was some discussion about whether or when we would unload. Eventually the rain ended, and everyone unloaded. I think there were just under a dozen full size tractors and less than a dozen garden tractors. I got to see pops1964's Massey 1450, which is a great looking tractor, he just needs to track down the reason behind oil leaking out of the engine breather.
Around noon I participated in some fun tractor games, which I've never done before. We "jousted" using a pool cue to pluck hoops off hooks, played "push the barrel", "bomb the can" which involved driving a course of cans and trying to drop nuts or washers into the can while speeding by, and "chain in the hole". I've got a few short videos which I'll try to upload one day. The tractor club has a webpage, so I'll give them a shout-out:
Very friendly bunch of people and I had a really good time. If I can fill out the paperwork correctly, they'll even let me join!
