    Default Photos From Last saturday's Loadout to Santa Magarita.

    Hi, Folks.
    Here are some photos of last Saturday's load-out from Paso Robles Pioneer Day Barn to the Bets Of The West show at Santa Margarita Ranch.

    6.15 AM:

    The last to be loaded - the Holt 120 and the Best 30 tailseat:

    And comin' down the road - our 'fearless leader' in the lead with his 5th wheel trailer hauling the Holt military 5-ton:

    Followed by the rest, or at least some of them - 17 rigs in all:

    And the line-up in the field at the ranch - Garlic Pete's 769 dump truck was already at the ranch:

    Think we might have us a show.

    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    If anyone is sitting on the fence about going to the show, I say get going..... We had a great time there today. This is a nice family event even if your kids are 24 and 26. It was nice to see children learning about trains, tractors, horses, or just playing in the dirt. Thank You all for putting on this awesome event.
    Great regards, David Grow

    Default Slide show

    Hi All,

    Decided it was far easier to put my pictures in a slide show and put them on YouTube. If you pm me your email and the time the photo appears, I will be happy to send you a hi-res picture via email (or a bunch of them via sharefile).

    Best,
    Sue

    DONE! To the best of our ability! Matt VeerKamp let Chum and I take the SEVENTY for a ride around the grounds. We also had a long discussion and detailed showing by Mr. Hunter of the "Ol' 111" built by his father. Needless to say, Chum was much impressed! His crew jumped right into the sandbox both operating and wrenching. Hugh help to us.

    Chum's 2U D8 will stay on the ranch for now. I think there is a real possibility he will return to a future show.
