    Since we can't mow and aren't making any cash due to the drought, lets plan ahead for a little fun. Is it too early to plan the pilgramage to Louisville? Last year was a blast and I can't wait to get back there. :clapping:

    It's the first week in October (only alittle more than 6 weeks away). If I'm not being too personal, who is going and where are you staying?

    Lets see if we can get a group together.

    No offense but the Louisville show sucks!

    The GIE show is a much bigger, better show with more to do and see. This year it is in Columbus, Ohio in early November.


    Next year the 2 shows are combining...now that should be awesome! :weightlifter:

    No offense taken. I was at Orlando last year as well and wasn't impressed. Shorter time on the field with equipment with company reps., had to be bussed to and from the indoor exhibits and was more expensive than Louisville. Combining the two shows will at least save on travel expenses.

    Not sure if I'm going yet, or where I will stay if I do go.

    It is a done deal for us got plane tickets and car reserved and staying at Breckenridge but my wife has been reading some of the post about all the wild partys that has gone on in the past years and is having doubts about her quality of restful sleep that she will be able to get so she is kinda hinting to me it might be a good idea to find another place to stay I have not do it yet but she on the other hand has not pushed it yet either but we will be there to enjoy all the stuff going on .Twj

    Oh YEAH. The louisville expo is awesome. I think this year there'll be a couple of concerts at night....Aarron Tippin and the Marshal Tucker Band?? Can't remember but I think that's who's playing.
