Will there be a place to leave your trailer if a person sets up Friday?

You bet Charlie, you can leave your trailer right at your spot or we have another area for them.

Busted my butt getting the TriTrac running for the show . Hasn't run since Oct. Not usally a problem but not this time . Put some fresh gas , reached down to set the choke , stuck fast and so was the throttle .ok sprayed a little carb cleaner , good to go ,, well sort of ! Nothing not even a pop , tried a little starting fluid , still nothing . Time to look at the plug . It looked dry ,,a little to dry , shined a light and turned the motor and you could see the intake valve wasn't closing . Sprayed carb cleaner through the spark plug hole right under the valve kept at it with a screwdriver initial freed . Then she fired off ! Took it down through the neighborhood , stopped running , fuel problems now ! Used the JD with my wife at the wheel to pull it home . Cleaned the fuel filter bowel of crap a few times and now at least it stays running . Told my wife that if I complain of chest pains tonight its because I pulled that starter rope a few hundred times lol

Your right  !!  After last years show I thought maybe I would bring something different , like the DB with the cordwood saw plus a few other DBs would fit on the trailer  ( 5x10)   but after seeing the TriTrac on the 2016 flyer the only change will be it has the cultivators set-up on . So a little different  anyway .

Just got back from the consignment auction area and we are getting some good stuff in already. I saw a couple JD zero turn mowers and a JD 312 with a deck. Also a camper,two other trailers and a bunch of other attachments and little riding mowers and trimmers.

Does anybody remember what time we started it last year? I think it was around 6:00-6:30? Like last year, if we don't set a show ending time, we'll never get out of there for the meet and greet.

That sounds about right Eric, I don`t think most of us staff can get out of there much before that.

Not such a nice day to load up an open trailer . I'll have to wrap as much of the tractor as I can with a tarp . This makes a good case to get a enclosed trailer lol
