August was the first time I went to portland and boy was it a big show ( least to me it was) it deffanatly takes time to try to get threw the show and sellin stuff. Deffantaly going again. I wish I could go this weekend but that's looking slim because of harvest.... but that means save money for spring right?

Was busier this AM, lots more lookers and buyers. Almost sold my Big MM, not quite. We came home about 2:30, it dropped right off and my buddy said he had enough. Course sold a few things while loading as usual, for less of course!  Lots of people packing up and leaving, so don't think SAT is gonna be much there. Kinda like all the sellers buying between themselves, guess that is why it is a "SWAP" meet, swap your stuff for mine!  I bought a Chopper while there, here's pix of it in back of my truck!

We got there around 9:30, saw a few neat things, put a deposit on a snow blade for my Allis and will pick it up at the Wapac show in a few weeks over in Ohio.  Had a good time, took off just after 1pm, had a wonderfull lunch at Ponderosa and headed for home.  Saw lots of old friends and despite the chilly/dreary weather, had a great time!    Mike
