If all goes well on the trip to PA, I’m going to try making it to this event too.  It’s about 150 miles closer anyhow!

@pullstart maybe you could stop and pick up @Racinbob and @LengerichKA88 on your way around the bottom of Lake Michigan?

 

I sent @Vinylguy a personal invite to this a few months ago. @BPEisenhower mentioned that he may be making a trip up for the show. I also believe that @ronwh mentioned that he will be there. How about @Sarge would be great to meet you. @Deadguy any plans on making it this year??

 

With Wheel Horse as the feature there will be a huge feature barn to fill. It would be fun to get as many RS members there as we could.

Might just as well stop in FL and grab @clueless and @19richie66 on the way to Indy!

So I read the goal is 204 or more Wheel Horses, huh?  I’ll have to see how many I can stuff into Norman...  the Big Show will be my training camp!

 

Is there a loading dock at this show, like in Arendtsville?

 I don't remember seeing one. There are a couple of ditches or some mounds that could be used for loading / unloading though.

@CasualObserver or any one for that matter. We should start ribbing some of the Eastern members about heading this way for the show. @WVHillbilly520H , @Sparky , @AMC RULES, (a good excuse for @squonk to come to Packer land) @rmaynard that campfire juice has got to be gone by now, time to take a drive & pick up more.

Good to know.  Norman is just 2wd, so ditches I try to not get into.  My current plan is to build an 8’x9’ deck over my pickup bed for hauling tractors.  Designing the ramp is the challenge so to speak.

Kev, I've seen the way you pack a truck, not sure me and Rich would be good with that, but thanks anyway.

Oh you haven’t seen my other recent project?  I made Norman into a limo!  It’s a little rough around the edges, but it should ride smooth!

Speakin of campers my enclosed trailer will be available for someone to stay in if they like. I stayed in it for two seasons so it's very comfy. Has a big air mattress so all you need is a sleeping bag.  Giving   @stevasaurus  dibs due to age and certainly not beauty :lol:... so taking 2nd, 3rd dibs.

I plan on having at least 10 tractors there maybe more.

@jeremi3210 you gonna try and make it?

Anyone know Chris Hill's handle did he get included?
