    I'm going, already have the hotel reservations. Last time I went was 2006. About a 15 hour drive as I remember. The outdoor demo area is a Big boy Frickin' Playground !! Charlie Daniels will be playing...

    I will be there. Never been to the Lousiville show. I went a couple of times when it was in Charlotte before they combined with the Power Euipment expo.

    Oh, you'll like it. Big place plus the outdoor demo area. Big boy playground with lots of Big toys.. Also, a great place to demo, all in one place. Already received my name tag in the mail this week plus the map layout with all the vendors and their locations.
