I'm giving it about a 1/2 thought.

 

I just pulled in from a roughly 3,000 mile road trip, and right now I'm kinda 'driven out'.

 

However in a day or two I might feel different  :D :D :D

 

The weather forecast will play a role in that as well.

 

Is there a link to any info on exactly where it is?

Yep, I checked Intellicast.com for the weather. Doesn't look too bad considering the time of the year.

Plus no rain is forecast until after the plow day.

Ryan and I will be there. Really looking forward to one more day of fun before the winter blahs.

Remember Guys, you have to join the club to participate. They ask you join before unloading also for insurance reasons.

Looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones.

It's been a little dry here but we have snow on the ground right now.  With that little bit of snow melting, the plowing should be good.  At first I didn't think I was going to make it this year, but recent events have me thinking that I may make it after all.  I'm still not 100% certain but I'm feeling good enough about it to mount the plow on the tractor.  Hope to be there.

I was there  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

 

We are sitting in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Butler, and will leave for home in the morning. I had an absolutely FANTISTIC time.

 

Got to meet some fellow GTTers, got to try plowing with the HDT1000, and even entered to sled pull.

 

I had plenty of help getting the plow setup, and some REAL good advice at the sled pull.

 

I won't say how I did in the pull.  I'll leave that to others :D :D :D

 

Plowing conditions were, I was told, horrible, but from what I could gather it wasn't something the WPGTA guys had any control of.

 

That won't deter me from going back in the Spring. A REALLY friendly bunch of guys.

 

I didn't take the first pic, so will have to rely on those that did.  One fella said that his wife took 150 or so, and offered to send them to me via email when they get loaded onto his PC.  I gladly took him up on his generous offer.

 

This is the first event of this type that I've gone to, and believe me, I'll be going back.
