    Superb Captdevo - You may have just made this a 100% lets go deal - have not heard from any mfg's yet - Will probably get my local JD dealer to have some JD stuff too, and eXmark dealer from Muscatine may show

    Thanks, Brad

    I will see what I can arrange. The dates for the bbq are conflicting with some other shows we are doing but I will see if I can get some factory bladerunner representation! If I can't Dave will just have to bring his hotrod!!!!!!
  4. I will do my best to attend, and most likely have "beck" accompany me.

    Should I bring the 52" with the FD and/or my ZTR sprayer system?

    Bushhogboy-unless you have your own BBQ - this may be as close as it gets. You are only 6 hrs away maximum. Come on and bring all you have.

    Don't have a license yet and none of my relatives wants to go with me. Also my parents wouldn't let me bring the 12mpg van out there with the trailer! Otherwise it sounds good, I road trip'd to Toledo (5hr one way) for that JD w/b with my older brother. I drove all the way but it was expensive on gas (Ford 351 gas, automatic, rolling billboard and a 6x12 open trailer= gas hog!)
    Maybe next year. Well I will see you all later this year at Louisville just an hour away from here.
    Have fun!

    Just sent the Motel phone #'s and directions to Kansas Snowplow - We will have the BBQ just off Hwy 61 about 10.5 miles north of Burlington, IA. (SE. Corner of IA.)

    Go about 10.5 miles north of Burlington - you will come to a John Deere Dealership on the left - go 3/4 mile north on hwy 61 and turn right (east) on the first BLACKTOP Rd. - Go 2 mi. (blacktop ends - take hard (90Deg.) right - go 80 yards thru split - then follow the gravel single lane rd until you find us - about 1 mile or less.

    Directions to the Mar. 29 - BBQ - SE. Iowa Simplified:

    Find Mediapolis, Iowa or Burlington, Iowa - (SE Iowa on hwy 61)

    198th St. is north of Burl about 10 mi. (3/4 mi north of a JD dealership on the west side of hwy 61)

    198th St is 2.5 miles south of Mediapolis Main St. (small town)

    198th St. is a Blacktop Rd. that T's off hwy 61 to the east.

    198th St. is 2 miles long (blacktop)- then

    Take hard right (90 deg) for about 80 yards (gravel) , and the gravel rd will wind for about 1/2 to 3/4 mile - then you will come to a shelter house - WE WILL BE THERE.
