My Big Show prep

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello all,

  My wife and I have decided to attend at least one day at the big show.This will be a first for us both.The one thing I have heard about it is to bring a chair.While that sounds like a plan ,my son took all my aluminum lawn chairs. I had to buy some off E-bay and they showed up today.They were described as vintage and I guesss they are but I remember when they were $4.99 new.I am also thinking about loading the crane tractor up so you guys can look at it.I don't plan on taking it off the truck but if there is enough interest it will make the truck ride better.

A chair is a necessity! Us old people (not you of course) need to rest the dogs.

I bought a $20 rocking lawn chair from TSC. One of my better purchases!

What does it weigh?I have lots of foldable chairs that come in the bags.They are heavy and are a pain to put back in the holsters.

I will be the old guy with the blue and white webbed lawn chairs.I would like to meet as many of the folks on here as I can. The few of you I have met in person have been a joy.

I'll have it. So that will identify at least this one old guy.

Why do I get the feeling that I will be at home and lost in the crowd at the same time?

It is a great event!! You will not be disappointed.  We always have extra chairs to sit in, and at least 1 easy up for shade!! Look for the big red tent across from Glen Cockerham ( he is the one with the tractor trailer bed outside the barn area

You cannot bring a tractor to the big show and not take it off the truck !! They have a loading ramp close to the road to make loading and unloading easy.

Might as well unload it if you bring it. There's a place you can back up to and drive it on and off.

Plenty of space to park it when not driving it around. You'll be sorry if don't. Plus that's an extra seat

Bring a rain coat or other items that will keep you dry. AT some time during the 3 days there will be water falling out of the sky.  You have to visit the Mash Pole and Howard.

Have fun and enjoy the show is the proper etiquette.

 

The first show is like data overload. They'll be so much to take in and meeting lots of friendly people that time passes way to quick, almost like time traveling. It's hard to explain but you'll see what I mean after you leave. Just make sure you get in the group pic too. They usually announce it over the loud speaker when it's time.
