Nothing a phone call in sick won't take care of. Tell them you have rectal glaucoma, and that you really can't see your ass coming to work :D

Got a bunch of stuff to get done tonight. Going to try and leave work a little early to help give me a little more time. Gotta gas the truck up and load both the tractors. Need to take the tiller off of dad's 800 too. I wanna make sure I got the batteries charged again. I was going to bring the MF12 along with the 800 and D4-10 but I will more then likely be too busy taking pictures so I will only bring the two. It will be easier to pull up some of those hills that way too.

Was speaking with Dad & going over a couple of things with him. He thought I ought to pass along a couple of things.

There are some pretty decent loading docks. One works pretty well for pickups, so if that is how you are bringing your treasure, there is an easier way than ramps.

Coffee will be on early and the rumor is we will be plowing next to the driveway.

There is no "Flea Market" per say. Over the years, guys have had sale signs on tractors, and people have had a thing or 2 on their trailer or tailgate unmanned, but there isn't a good place to set up tables or anything. They just try to keep that pretty low key.

Most of you will will be coming across Rte 285 towards the end of your trip. I am very sorry for it's condition. It is bad enough, you will want to slow down a little.

If anyone gets lost, the phone number at The Alsdorf's is (814) 425-7424

Everyone be safe, see you there!

Started the morning with a really light drizzle.
It was supposed to stop drizzling around 3 today, it has been tapering off since then & has more or less stopped (feels like fog right now, starting to brighten)

Called over to the farm & they said they were out on the fields brushhogging the areas that have corn stubble. They are still planning on having the event as it has stopped raining and it's supposed to be a dry, breezy night. This farm has good drainage and we should be OK. Just thought I'd give an update with the latest news...

BTW;
I think they are starting to think I'm a Nervous Nellie, but I don't want anyone driving unless I've done all the checking I can. :D

We are all loaded up and ready to go. Dad got the tiller off the 800, hooked the trailer up and gassed up the truck which was very nice then I just had to get the tractors loaded and strapped down. Both were being a little contrary getting started but should be alright. The might take a little tinkering to fire off once we get there but should be good to go after that. I don't plan on plowing much with the Bush Hog but figured it be nice to give a go a couple passes anyways.

You guys have a blast up there! If many tractors show though, you'll eat that 20 acres up pretty quick. Looking forward to pics & video's. No plowing for me till Fall now, so have to plow vicariously through your pics/video. Safe travels!

Looking forward to seeing everybody tomorrow. As George already posted, I got a few things done when I got home from my last trip to Charlotte. Wanted to at least help out a little.
