We finished washing our tractors up today. Also did some switching around with the implements. I pulled my Massey dump cart in the garage tonight so I could fixed the crappy rigging job that was on the latch assembly with something a little closer to factory before the show.

Have a good bit more stuff to do but I think we will be in good shape. I also think we will be camping out at the show to help with security or at least help people feel a little more comfortable having their stuff there.

I'm still trying to find extra time to get things done and ready. How about postponing the show one more week? LOL

I even have fellow member trucker21 helping me out. I don't know what I'd do if it weren't for his help. I'm still trying to get the '63 110 put back together, and still doing some miscellaneous painting to the '66 112. Haven't even dug out the '69 140 & '70 120 yet. These two just might not make it to the show. I have tires to swap around yet on the '73 110 and need to confirm with Dad that he'll have the trailer home in time for me to load Wednesday night.

I am probably going to leave all my tractors home due to complicated logistics, but I will definitely be there.

Show time is getting close. Gonna go to tomorrows meeting. Got a few more things to get done here on the tractors yet and then Wednesday will be at the show grounds to help get everything setup along with setting our stuff up. I got the latch fixed a little better on the massey dump cart and I also got a hitch made for dad's sulky he picked up a while ago. I think we will have around 6 loads going to the show.

Does anyone know if there is a loading dock for a pickup truck? I will be taking my 1655 diesel on Saturday.

I don't think there is a loading dock but I do believe there is a bank or two that could be used for unloading. I will also have a set of aluminum ramps for anyone that would want to borrow them. Can also use our trailer to back up to to unload if steepness is a concern.

Would be great to see the 1655 diesel.

Wow, I think we are going to need a good bit of room at the GTtalk tent. Got quite a few guys that are coming will be setting up with us. Anxious to go to tonight's meeting and see how we will be able to setup. I am going to keep everyone in mind and do my best for setting up. We are going to setup our tent Wednesday morning and probably start hauling tractors down. Was going to wait to haul them down till Thursday but I would like us to be able to give as much help as we can with parking everyone and getting everyone unloaded and situated.

I put two ads on the local craigslist yesterday to let more know about the show and already received about 10 legit emails regarding questions and setting up and forwarded them to the club.

Just a quick heads up for anyone coming Saturday. Try to get there early. The auction is starting around 8 or 8:30 and there are going to be a lot of people there so to make it easier if you are bringing tractors in get there early.
