Funny i alway thought real GT's started with a rope. Thats one of the nice things about a walk-behind, never having to jump start it.


That may be true but I was charging the batteries to the cameras :p

Would be awesome if we could get as many together for a group photo that we can. Sounds like most members will be there on Friday so maybe we can get together at some point. I don't know how things are laid out. I also don't know if GTtalk members will be able to get setup close together or not as I have no control over the setup. I think our tent is right across from the LAGT tent.

Hope everyone has a safe trip. I've been working like crazy to try and get ahead enough to take my vacation day on friday,(already put in 40 hours as of Wednesday evening.)

I have decided not to bring a tractor since it will be just me and the 2 kids. Maybe next year I will have a tractor I feel is show worthy.

People please,,, this isnt a fashion show, its garden tractors. I'm not bringing four restored ones to it. Im bringing working ones mostly. The only person your machine has to impress is you, so put them on a trailer, throw it in the car trunk, or drive it there, ,,just bring one or better yet two of them. You dont get big shows for GT's very often, and you dont want to miss out on this one.

So true! Even though I'm bringing my nicest restoration, I wish I could bring a big trailer full of some of my workers. Most of my workers have weights & fluid filled tires, so too heavy to pull behind my Cherokee. I'd love to bring my whole herd of Bush Hogs, but not this time. I figure Bob Simmons will have many of his Bush Hogs there though, or at least I hope so. He's like just 50 miles or so from the show.

Got her washed & ready to load on the trailer!

Wish I could be there I went to the one in Dover PA last year , any of you guys that are close are going to
be mad at yourself for not taking somethings to show at the show. The show in Dover had more garden tractors in one
spot than I ever thought could be, many I had only seen in pics.They don't have to be trailer queens to get people's
interest I love them all, it is a wonder how some of these things have made it so far 30 40 50 years old and older
garden tractors around here seem to be growing in interest more and more at the shows every year.

Hope all of you guys have a great time and have a safe trip

Kenny
