SUNDAY JULY 29th BEFORE SHOW

We arrived Sat at 2:00 pm and thought we would do some camping early. Well as it turned out they were haveing a 4H Horse Riding Contest where we all usually camp. :no: Well where there is Horses there are road apples, and where there are road apples there are flies (I think you get the picture) :roll: Anyways yesterday there had to be a Zillion at our campsite So Luckily I brought some potenet spray I got from Orkin and Dave the campsite host fogged the whole campground for us :bow-blue: (I wonder if MJ's Baked Goods had anything to do with that?) :eusa-whistle: Anyways we shouldnt have any problem with skeeters between both of our spraying like last year. And the weather..... Well it has been just fantastic and looks like it will be all week. Im looking forward to you all getting here and if any want to come early Im sure I can fire up the Ole Grill and break out a Qt of apple juice. :thumbs2: Here are some pics, brought my RJ-58 and 702 this year. All of you drive safe, and see you here.

Super 8 is real nice and reasonable. right around the corner from the show...517-543-8288

Check Kelly's next post...the Super * is now America's Best. I hope it is the same phone #???

Just wanted to let everyone know that Super 8 in Charlotte is no longer Super 8 it is now America's Best! If you make reservations on line it will make it for Charlotte North Carolina NOT Michigan. If you have made reservations online check it because it cost my parents a night before they didn't catch it so they couldn't cancel 24 hours ahead of the day.

Remember the gates to the show area are locked at 8am you will have to unload in the parking area after that, and drive your tractors in.

I'll have my trailer in the parking area to put the 701 on.

Well,we just got back from the show,it was a great show! Not as many tractors as last year but met tons of new faces! I also brought home a 875,I have been wanting one for a while and this one seemed like a pretty good deal,but it may need a trans,this one leaks oil pretty bad. I will try to get up a few of the pics I took(only a few) later. Jake
