What all are they featuring Bob? I know they're featuring Gravely, but anything else? I'm thinking of going at least one day.

I had a great time at the National Pike show on Saturday. Between Bob's FDE, the other Cletracs and construction equipment, and the featured Gravelys, there was much to see. I saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones too. I hope all who attended had a great time.

I decided to go to the National Pike show at the last minute - I took a buddy's Gravely to sell, and a bunch of Gravely parts.  Sorry I missed you guys -  Blake, Bob and Dadjon.

I attended because it was the Gravely Tractor Club's annual Mow-In, held in conjunction with the National Pike Steam show, and had a great time. 

I obviously didn't do my homework, or I would have realized the show was way more than Gravely's and would have been in touch with you guys about meeting up there.  As soon as I drove in the gate, it dawned on me - and I did look around to see if I could recognize Blake.   In retrospect, I did see Bob's FDE in action on top of the dirt pile! 

Doh!

Yeah, When Blake told me you were there too, I knew I had missed a great opportunity...  We'll make it happen another time.

Meanwhile, I've got some work to do - the '45 AG-6 was out in the woods doing some trail work with me a couple of weeks ago, and one track came off the rear sprocket.  It happened once before, and I was able to do a field repair, but this time is being a bit more of a challenge.  Not on level ground, and not a lot of room to work in.  I have got to break loose the adjusting nuts - both tracks are way too loose
