A Couple of Upcoming Shows; Trucktoberfest & Winchester

Recommended Posts

The "guy" in the potato truck is sitting in Carlisle PA with no trailer taillights. Been here since 4p Saturday night. Waited over 1-1/2 hours at Petro for a tech to look at the trailer. Was told it would be another 2 hours so I said "f it! Bought a new cable for $100 but that did not resolve the issue. Was getting dark so I got a room at Stupid 8. Waiting on daylight so I can go home and troubleshoot it myself.

Great show, great trucks, and great people. Thanks for posting some pics.

Didn't make it to the show... got to work Saturday instead... YAY!!!

But I did see a sharp green L tandem dump going east on I-78 in NJ around 2pm.

And fxfymn's "A" looks even nicer in person!

Thank you!

When we did the loops around the test track Steelman got to find out why riding in an open cab fire truck in the rain made them obsolete.

I don't know if the Winchester show will give out name tags, but if they do please put your BMT handle on it so we can recognize each other.

Contact Barry for a nametag. He designed a nice nametag that I wore at Macungie. I will bring it to Winchester and Gerhart's.

I am not allowed to play with anything that is sharp.

My forehead is so large these days I'd run out of ink twice before I finished.

I just watched the weather- not looking too good for the weekend, 70% chance of rain Friday and Saturday, 1-2''.

Hmmm, maybe I will have my own show at the farm...me, myself, and I. And I was planning to sleep in the trailer. Don't like rain!

Me neither! But that was Lynchburg, maybe Winchester will be dry.

Just checked to forecast. Rain late Friday night into Saturday. I will check the forecast on Thursday morning and decide if I am going to drive the MH.
