    My family and I made it safely to the Chicagoland area.

    On the way we passed a truck loaded with Fisher plows in PA. Radioed the driver and he said they were bound for Southern Illinois. Guess Fisher is doing good business in the midwest. No stainless blades on the truck. Wife took a few shots and I will see how well they came out.

    Other than that no major events of the trip. I will be online and checking things out in the area.

    CT, its strange that you mention seeing Fisher blades headed for IL. At the sima show I was talking to a contractor from Chicago and when he asked where I was from I said Boston and he said "Fishers are big there aren't they?" I told him they have about 80% of the market, then he said "ya know they just can't seem to make an impact around us". Maybe this means they finally are starting to make one?

    Great!

    Went out to a place for breakfast in Northbrook and saw a billboard adevertising for plowing subs with there own equipment. I have never seen anyone advertise using a billboard for workers. Is the need that great? Has me thinking now. HMMMMM.

    Will give you a shoot this week.
