Well, Matt got here and we got his snowcaster loaded up.

 

The mighty Bolens Forklift made the loading a pretty easy task :thumbs:

 

Of course, since it's a road trip involving tractors and attachments, and I was involved, the "Curse of the Buzzard" applied, and it rained on us the whole time  :D :D :D

We could've used that curse at Daniels this year. You need to get a better hold on it! haha!

Glad to see you guys make it out these parts. Have safe travels back home.

Thanks, Dave for loading up the snow caster with your fork lift. It was great to finally meet you.

Now off to Van Buren for the night.

PO must have wanted a Power King with those nice colors on it!  Seems a little cleaner than most for sale. What brand was that made for?

Those 990s were painted in a myriad of colors.

 

It all depended on what brand name was put on them.

As every good tractor road trip goes you end up adding tractors to the haul. We stayed at my buddy's brother's house last night and while there we were offered a Simplicity Wonder Boy mower. My buddy (Eric) drove this for many years. My buddy's son will enjoy getting this going and continue the tradition.

Thanks to Eric's brother and sister-in law for putting us up over night.

Just passing Wapakoneta, OH on our way to Dayton.

Who can tell me without using Google what is the connection between the moon and Wapakoneta, OH.

Drove through the night till 6 am and then grabbed a few hours of shut eye in Mill Hall, PA. Couldn't find a place to stay anywhere near State College due to the Penn State football game. Will be on the road shortly, heading into some weather.

Matt,

 

Was Ohio flat enough for you? 

 

Big difference from that part of PA.  :D :D :D
