    Oh Darn

    I wanted to get down last year, and I was planning everything around this year for the middle of the month, BUT the 1st day of Deer season is the 29th here (gun), and I just can't be absent from the deer camp that weekend, even planned my wedding so it was between the last day of fishing season and the first day of deer season, so we would never have a conflict on our anniversary:nono: I could miss the anniversary to go to the BBQ, she would understand how important it would be!;) but deer season! Well a fella gotta make a decision!:cry:

    I'll plan on it, weather permitting. I plowed 4" of snow on October 28th, 2000. Which, incidentally, was also the first snow I ever plowed.

    Oct 30th right around the corner
    Id love to go and see all the equipment, probley will go. Easy day trip for me, also a nice time to take a ride if fall foliage is still on trees. I don't think many people care for me to be there though, I probley cause too much trouble here on plowsite. Anyone else plan on going?

    cja, Everyone's welcome at the BBQ, KInda like a neutral ground if you want to look at it that way. Lots of opinions and ideas have been changed there over the years. To chat on line is one thing, to meet in person grab a little grub and chat is quite another. The best thing is you'll have a better understanding of others and they will of you too.

    Hope to see you there,

    Jerre

    Chris/cja1987, I'd really encourage you, and anyone interested, to go to the BBQ. Like Jerre said, it's for everyone even remotely interested in plowing snow. I had to go back and look at your posts to see what you were talking about (I don't read all threads). I assume you're referring to the thread about the 4x4. Believe me, that's nothing compared to some in the past and I doubt anybody would remember it, anyway.
