Looking forward to a good time with all you folks that come!  We'll have fun no matter what the ground conditions, but I think we'll be plowing at least on Saturday if not by tomorrow afternoon.  :thumbs:

New Holland is on the trailer and strapped down for the trip tomorrow. So I should get there a little after noon. Not sure how much plowing I will get to do with the New Holland since I heard the pressure relief valve for the first time when loading up over the 3" tailboard of the trailer. I will need some help before I hit the fields though, I need someone with a sharp ear to help tune the carburetor. It's close yet far from correct lol. But I am excited to meet up with everyone.

I see the sun peeking out on the horizon.  Storms went north and south of me this last round, and if lucky enough, possibly not get any more rain.

It will be at least 8am before I go out to the fields.  I think Kenny & I will first go get the porta-pot, as we'll be needing it's service in short order.  Then on to other things as we get to them.  Even if this last band of rain clips us, I don't think it will be enough to hurt much.  I think we'll be able to plow some by tomorrow afternoon.

I hooked up my trailer and had no tailights. Everything worked 2 days ago. Needless to say I'm in the process of replacing the entire harness, plug to lights. Still will be there around 7ish. Wish me luck.

I didnt even test my lights, figured they are fine, new wiring three years ago, new lights this year. Hope you get your harness installed without incident.

All Last minute chores done to the tractors, picked up the Uhaul trailer this afternoon and loaded both tractors and plows and have those secure.

 

Still need to figure out how to strap down the second mini bike.

 

My daughter is the only child that seems excited to be going and having a chance to drive the tractor and plow :(.  

 

Plan to start tomorrow morning and arrive tomorrow evening.
