Getting up in AM and off with loads to set-up for the Portland show this week. Weather is looking good for all week!  Lower temps to go with. Hope so and see more outside people walking around. I don't have much stuff, but partner has the two big trailers filled with mostly his stuff, and my two GT's, and I have truck full of small items. Row 4 spot 6 & 7, way to rear. Maybe will see someone from here? I'll wear my GT hat starting Wednesday, when it offically opens.

will be there on Thursday and possible Friday, cruising around on my G5200 Kubota.  Looking for an Kohler 16hp air filter cover and a good engine for a Simplicity 535 Serf that has electric start, both for my friend that is stuck at work.  Mike

Sold a Speedex before off trailer! Mini bike too. Unofficially of course, cant sell till Wed, a rule! Here's our spot, no one beside us yet, but fills in. Found fella with lots of Economy PK stuff, few tractors. Doesn't do forums.

Hey Wilbur, didn't see the Bolen's area like last time. Up by the sale barn? Saw space still there tho, just no tents or nothing??
A few pictures from the show today. Sold some PK fenders (Unoffically), and drove around looking at stuff. Found a few Clinton engines, the little ones. One is only $10, might get that just because!! He said no spark, but is complete. Found a Briggs 18hp V-twin Vanguard, just what I want. $600, just what I Don't want! Found a Bolens 140 lawn tractor that looked real nice, had Vanguard 14hp vertical in it, hydro. Odd cheap tires, with hardly any tread, engine is supposed to smoke real bad. No battery. Looked like engine burnt, but now we think a battery dumped it's acid on the engine and ate it up on top. Look at pictures and what you think. $95, and think he will take less. This is design I like, but not sure worth messing with. Realy would like a bigger one. I might go back with battery and try it, offer $50 maybe.

The bolens area is west of the auction barn they moved all the GTs over there and we are not a main tractor this year.

If all goes well tomorrow, I will be using my freebie 110sf JD as the butt buggie puller.  Since this year is JD feature, I am on a crash coarse  to get her operational.  I am there tonight, just need to test drive for a bit tomorrow to make sure the old belts will pull ok for the duration.  I am in need of OEM style front tires for her, Firestones.  If anybody sees some, let me know.  See you all on Thursday.   Mike

The 110 patio will probably be in the bed of my truck with a for sale sign and the Kubota will be pulling the sulkey around the show.  Mike
