Who all is going?   Wonder if they would complain if I use my Deutz Allis 5215 SCUT to pull my buddy around on his sulkey? LOL!   Probably use my wifes 1811 Cub Cadet.  The Deutz is about the size of a 430 JD with taller back tires.   Plan on being there on Friday the 26th.    Mike

Its been so dry, I hope it stays damp enough to keep the dust down, thats the biggest issue, its either really dusty or a mud pit!   I can bring my JD 318 package I am selling if anybody is interested in buying it.  Need to send it down the road so I can pay momma back what she loaned me to snag my scut.   Mike

I will probably go Thur or Fri, keeping an eye on the weather forecast. Need to shop for a butt buggy of some sort, gettin' too old to walk  it all. Need a new seat for the CC106 also.

Set-up some today, going again tomorrow (TUES) with second trailer of Buddies tractors. He has W-30, Cub Farmall, and Deere LA. No tractors for me this year, just some Briggs engines, two running, others close and couple of parts junkers. Looked around some, quite a bit there already. IH is feature tractor, lots of them in that group. Many spots to fill in yet, they keep coming in. Was dry and sunny today, little dusty, but not much traffic yet. Grass in roads is laying down tight now, heh!

Planning to be there on Friday, got the official approval from work today to take the day off.  Planning to use my Deutz Allis to pull  my buddy around, she is no larger than a golf cart and quieter than my wife's cantankrous cub cadet.  Looking for any air cooled diesels or a 4 cylinder liquid cooled to put in my Ranger pickup.   See you all there.   Mike

I was planning to come out this afternoon. Storms are brewing just west of us and heading this way. Hopefully it will pass north of us. I'll look to head out there tomorrow.

Did the storms Wed go through the Portland area?  Is it a mud pit up there today? I would like to know before starting my hour and half journey.

The tornadoes went just north of me by a couple miles, then just as half mile to the south.  No damage at my place thankfully, lost power till nearly 6am this morning.   Still planning to come tomorrow to the show.  Need to pull the mower deck off something, either the Deutz Allis or the Cub so I can pull my friend around.    Mike

Just parked. Wearing a blue shirt that says "IMPD" and a Case camo hat. Stop me if you see me. It rained here this morning. Heading to the swap meet now to see how the ground is. It's nice and sunny now.
