Well, come Friday morning early I'll be heading out with a buddy for a long road trip from ME to OH and back. Round trip I figure will be over 2,000 miles and 30+ hours. This trip will add two tractors and a snow blower to my herd. The trailer is sitting in the dooryard waiting to be hooked up and roll.

In the end I hope to have added a snow blower for my 1974 MTD 990, a 1973 MTD 990 and a 2414 Power King. Weather doesn't look ideal but I trust all will go well and we'll be safe and sound back in ME by Sunday evening.

I will be stopping by Dave's (OldBuzzard) place to pick up a snow blower that he trailered back to OH from Ball Hollow Plow Day. I'm looking forward to meeting Dave and seeing his herd.

Some around these parts are calling our trip CRAZY. I guess most just don't understand the fun of our hobby. I'll try to give updates as I'm able to do so throughout our trip.

I wish I could stop and say hi to all GTT members who are between ME and OH but alas I cannot. However, I would love to see a list of GTT members who I could visit on this trip IF I had the time. Thanks.

Depending on your travel route, I would be honored to meet you up at the farm and have a cup of joe.

Roughly 1/2 way between I80 and I90 just off I79

Good luck and good hunting.

And wave as you drive buy!

But, then your probably going by at three in the morning!

OK, what year or close on the PK?  Is it like Mine in my Avatar? OR, plastic body late model? I'm in IN, not far over the border of Ohio, and could keep that PK here for you till later. You really won't have any place to keep it at your place and you can come get it next fall when it is warmer and I'm done Using....er.....I mean storing it for you!  No charge storage! :smilewink:
