14.5 hours (950 mi.) if I were to go, not counting stops!
Figured cost of gas to drive round trip. Average 21 mpg. with 93 octane @ $6.00/gal. would be right at $550.00! (Thanks uncle Joe)
Could make it in 4 hours if I flew. :errrr:
By the way, when are they going to make electric jets? They use more fuel than the vehicles do. Oh, I forgot. If they made electric jets, the weight of the batteries wouldn't allow them to get off the ground! :roflol:

How big is the area the show is located on? 40 acres? Bigger or smaller? I want to bring my elderly father but won’t if it’s really spread out.

HMMM, I would say less than 40 acres. on most years, they claim there is 1000 garden tractors. now how that number is counted, i have no idea. it is at the Columbia county fair grounds in Portage. if you google map that you can see the foot print, of which they use a third to maybe 1 half. maybe someone else can chime in for the size of the area better than me.

If they keep encroaching with soccer and baseball fields there won't be enough room in the future.
They have already cut some of the camp spots

Loaded and ready to hit the road in a few days.
Taking the 126, the 104 and the 14+DanCo loader unit for it's 1st big show.
But the newness has worn off some as it has seen quite a bit of use over the last 3 years since I finished it.

Also along for the ride is the "O" sporting a restored DanCo BB36 thrower, creeper, fenders, new hood, spring assist and a custom weight box.
It is an early build, #18xxx and has been taken care of but does need some work in a few areas.
Hoping it will be going home with a new owner after the show.

Plus lots of parts new and used.

That was some PO's mod.
AI believe at one time it had the proper headlight setup as there are 2 holes in each side of the grill where they should have been located

well, i know Thursday had to be a nice day for those who went, Friday when we got there was wet, finally cleared up about 3, but Sat was good after 9 and about 11 the sun finally came out. other than the weather which Brett could not control, l thought he and his staff did another great show. waiting to hear how many tractors yet. we had fun, sold some parts, found some parts, not at work, great weekend.

the boy said he saw posted that there was roughly 850 tractors at the show. little down this year, but i suspect that was because of the rain on friday.
