I'll actually be going to Grafton, Il, but St. Louis is the closest big city that everyone will recognize.
Jerome, and his dad got here around noon, and we got all of his 'goodies' stowed away on their truck. Then, they were kind enough to help me get that monster sized snowcaster off the trailer so I could get it moved to it's temporary resting place. After that, we got the 1886 off the trailer and towed to it's temporary spot.
I sent Jerome home with a little 'present' as well. I had 4 big binders of Bolens Engineering notes that I picked up when I was getting the Dual Wheel Kit in Wisconsin. He's more into that sort of stuff and I'm sure that he will make better use of it than I will.
Anyway, after they left, I got busy and loaded up the trailer for the trip. I have the HDT1000, my 3-pt plow, a 3-pt plow that I'm selling, and a hydro angle snowblade that I'm using in a trade. All I'll have to do tomorrow is get it hooked up to the HMS Rainmaker, and then set sail for Cincinnati where we are picking up our sons as they are going with us.
Our next stop will be in Richmond, In to drop off the 3-pt, then it's off to Grafton, Il for the Earthcavator. Then we will go back to Cincinnati to drop off the kids. After that it's off to Pataskala, Oh for the plow day on Saturday, followed by a short jaunt to the Zanesville area on Sunday to swap the snow blade for the Whirly Rake.
After that's it's, back home. Gonna be a busy week!
Just so I don't get any 'warning points', here's the trailer all loaded up and ready to go
