Today's mission which I chose to accept, took me across the Delaware river into Pa.to look at a 1958 wheel horse RJ, although a deal could not be made because of the wretched condition of the tractor, a silver lining presented it self,in that I had the pleasure of meeting a fellow New Jerseyan and GTT member jabelman. Jason and I have a lot in common, we both like a variety in our collection's and have some of the same GTS. In fact Jason led me to my second Gemco Big Boy. Jason's collection would be the envy of any serious collector especially his Porter Cable tractors which I'm smitten with. Thanks Jason for inviting me to see your very nice collection and look I forward to our continued friendship. Hank. NOTE THE WHEELHORSE WAS NOT Jason's

I also had the pleasure of meeting a fellow member today also a new jeresyan Bruce Dorsi. Bruce and his wife came to PA to pick up a part. We had a great visit with two very good people. I truly enjoy meeting new people through this great hobby. I have had the chance to meet several members and haven't run into a bad one yet. Big thanks to George for starting this great site and to all of you guys who help to keep it great.

I haven't met a bad member yet either. New Jersey is close enough to meet a few of you guys. I have a few attachments to build Jason's porter cable collection.

Thanks for the kind words, Don !!  .......The pleasure was truly reciprocal, as my wife and I were talking about you & Bonnie during our trip home.  ......You both made us feel so comfortable, and the 2+ hours passed very quickly (at least for us!).

 

Thanks again for your kindness and generosity !!!!!!!!!  And, thank you for the visit to your basement, I really enjoyed seeing that. 

 

~~~Bruce
