Finally goin to get it!

Getting started a little early today. The sun is up, it's about 36° right now, but need a lil something to quiet the stomach down. I should be there in about a little over an hour....

As long as the Jimmy has lots of gas (and you don't) things should go well - look forward to pictures when you get it home.

Going to get a tractor is no reason to try and poison yourself.

Or did the wife suggest that?

Looking forward to those photos!

On a side note, made safe and sound. Now the fun begins!!!!

Hope you enjoyed the trip. My wife and I always go together on my tractor trips. She puts up with my tractor stuff, plus gets a free lunch and some shopping in. Post pics soon!

You must have really been hungry to stop at Mc Donald's.   Around these parts their burgers are like shoe leather and sausage is twice as bad.  Looks like a good fun trip.  I had one of those a couple weeks ago.

Well, Its loaded, and gonna head back soon after a 10-100 break from drinking a ton of Coffee! ;)

I took some photos for now, but can add anything more that you folks might want to see.

Had to pop 1 tire back on the bead to get it to hold air, and once that was done I had to pop the freewheel pin out. That came out easy with a couple open ended wrenches.

Got it all on my little trailer, by myself. Easy peasy, Japaneasy!;)

Without further waiting...
