In Hamburg, NY right now.

 

I'm on my way back from picking up the Sweepster Transporter Body, and IF we can get it arranged, I'll be loading up some stuff the Jerome bought from Brian.

 

The guy with the Transporter Body had a LOT of stuff, and I'm coming home with a LOT more than I really should have :D :D :D

 

In addition to the body, I got an 1886-01 with a 54" deck, Bolens branded Front wheel weights, two big Bolens signs, a Bolens Clock, and a nice steering wheel for the 11886 Forklift.

 

I'll have one more stop on the way back home to pick up a 2-stage snowcaster for Rick Show, and then it;s hurry up and off load everything, and load up for the plow day.

 

Gonna be real busy for the next  couple of days.

 

No pics right now, and maybe not for another week of so until I get back from the St. Louis, Mo area, where I'm picking up a Gannon Excavator  :D :D :D

Glad to see you are reporting in!

When I saw the title, I was afraid you were in your motorhome camping at Walmart, and may be broke down!

Can wait for photos of your goodies.

But, the big question... Is it RAINING? :rolling:

 

Now why would you ask a question like that?

 

Of course it rained.  That's a foregone conclusion.

 

Not only did it rain, we also had about 10 minutes or so of this just as we were coming into the Buffalo:

Well to up date some.
 
As y'all have probably figured out, the reason we had stopped in Hamburg, NY was to pick up some 'goodies' that Brian had for Jerome.
 
We stayed overnight, and  after a bit of PM and Phone tag we got all of that arranged, and bright and early in the morning Brian showed with with said 'goodies'.
 
Didn't get to talk to Brian all that much as it was a bit on the 'cool' side and we were busy getting everything loaded up.  He's a nice YOUNG man, (well at my age danged near everyone is 'young'  :D ) and I'd like to visit with him at length some time.
 
As 'no good deed goes unpunished', loading up Jerome's stuff posed a problem, as there wasn't any room left over for Rick's 2-stage caster :ah_shoot:
 
That made a change of plans necessary, so we decided to head directly for home, off load at least Jerome's dump bed, and the transporter body, then double back to pick up the caster.
 
Pretty soon that looked like even that wasn't going to happen as we ran into this.
 100_1497.JPG

 
Which didn't seem to faze the State Road Crews, as they were busy MOWING in the middle of it!
 100_1504.JPG

Of course, snowflakes tend to bring out the 'stupid' in some folks, as this Mustang driver proved.
 100_1507.JPG

 
You can bet that the State Trooper was NOT happy to having to slog through all that mud, and  I'm guessing that the Mustang driver got an earful along with a ticket or two and a nice big tow bill :D
 
Pretty soon it got a bit heavier and we saw that the snow plows were out.
 

100_1509.JPG 100_1514.JPG 100_1516.JPG

 After that, it tapered off to nothing, so we breathed a sigh of relief, and figured that we would be home in plenty of time to get unloaded and go get the caster.
 
Well, that proved to be a bit premature, as just as we were coming into the East side of Cleveland we ran into THIS!
 
 
I told the wife, that I danged sure wasn't going to be off loading anything in that stuff, and that I guess we'd have to call the fella with the caster and postpone the pickup.
 
However, it turned out that it was just a narrow band that was blowing off of the lake, and just as we got a bit West, everything cleared up, and when we got home it was sunny and dry :dancingbanana:  
 
So I fired up the Forklift, off loaded the dump bed and transporter, and off we went to get the caster.
 
It was pretty much perfect timing, as the fella with the caster didn't get home until 4:30, and we got there at around 4:45.
 
Loading the caster was pretty easy as he had it strapped to a pallet, and used his Cub Cadet Compact with a backhoe to just swing it over the side, after I dropped the tailgate.
 
Now, I know that folks have said that the 2-stage caster is big, but DANG, I didn't think that they were THAT big.  Those puppies aren't big...they are HUGE!  Even IF I wouldn't have had Jerome's stuff, even with just the 1886 and transporter body on the trailer it wouldn't have fit, so in the end, the good deed for Jerome ended up being a good thing.
 
Anyway, since I have my camera now, the other pics are ones that the wife took, here's a few pics of the 1886, Jerome's reel mowers, and Rick's caster.

 Jerome PMed me and he may be coming down this weekend to get his goodies. I hope so, as I'll put him to work helping to off load all of this stuff, and maybe loading up some other stuff for my trip to St. Louis which we will be starting on Monday. Shucks, I'll even let him run the Forklift and the HDT1000 a bit  :D :D :D

Those guys are contracted by the State and get paid to mow so many times a year, I bet they will mow til they can't see the rotary cutter for all the snow flying over it.

 

Down here they mowed even thru the drought last summer mowing the dirt because it was in their contracts!!
