    I'm in hopes weather will be better by then letting us go back to work more.

    Last year we sent a bunch of equipment to Ritchie Bros. St. Louis auction. It was real interesting to see it from that angle.

    I have been the past three years and after going to all the auctions there in february, you would think come march there would be no equipment left in the state! Crazy amount of equipment, and keep an eye out for the women that the shipping companies employ. You will know what i mean when you see them :dizzy::drinkup:

    We are going to both lyon and RB more than likely as they are in my back yard. We recently decided to start looking for a horizontal grinder, so we will need a loader here soon as well.
