    Roll of tape that sticks to nothing other than itself! LOL I only bought one thing, but it seems pretty cool....its this stretchy tape type stuff that is wrapped tightly around things to seal them from either air or liquid leakage...even usable as electrical i tape i suppose (but pricey!!)

    I got it to wrap around my backpack blower hose where it has a crack from wear and tear. 20 bucks for 2 rolls...the lady claims someone used it to temporarily patch a 2400 psi hydraulic line!??!?!?!?!?

    I got a lot of freebies, my favorite being the Ferris ballcap that fits soo nicely and looks really nice. Echo gave me a foldable hand saw...I saw the same thing being sold elsewhere for 20 bucks.

    I think the chick selling the mower jacks was real hot....damn! I talked to her for a while, and she really knew her stuff...impressive .... although it was a very simple product. I might buy one soon. Jungle Jim;s jack was pretty hard to use on the ZT they had sitting there...the guy made a fool of himself trying to get it up!

    We didnt get outside, as we were there Thursday and it was closed. Pretty sh!tty....I drove from Cleveland to check it out...i was actually hoping to test leaf loaders in different hp ranges, as well as bed edgers....did anyone have these?

    Overall it was fun...a good excuse to get away to the casino (we stayed at Belterra) and relax!

    We Went outdoors on Fri. Well worth the 496 mi. drive for us I did'nt see any leaf loaders in action but there were some. I Demoed alot of Excavators, dug a rather large hole at the Yanmar Booth.. Then I started thinking did any one locate? (ONE CALL) Before the Show? I back filled the hole and Left. Sure would hate to uproot a Fiber Optic line in downtown Louisville!!

    Trip was definately worth the drive. Next time I'll have to go for two or three days though instead of just Saturday. I never really had a chance to check stuff out in detail. I was too busy walking around in amazement at how much stuff was there. I'm disappointed that I didn't win the Ferris IS2000 or$20,000 a towards a new truck. Oh well, there is always next year.

    I think it was a lady that won the truck thing too. Guess I need to bring the girlfriend along next year so maybe I stand a better chance at winning.
