I've only missed a couple of the shows here in the past 25 years. Excellent show, amazing pulls, and put the two together for dang good time!Has anyone been to the National Farm & tractor pull show in Louisville, KY. I believe it starts Feb.15th. Looks like a really big event. Show is indoor & free. Pay for parking only & the Pull event if you attend.
I'm going to attend this year. Let's see if we can meet up Friday? I'd love to see more GTT members there. We both can do some videos. :thumbup1gif: Maybe you can catch this elusive diesel guy? :unknown:I typically go.Perhaps we should arrange a GTT meetup for this year??? I usually attend on Friday.
I do believe your knowledge is correct sir, any time I have read anything or heard anyone talk about the NFMS it's in reference to Louisville being the big/great one. It's far more than just ag equipment. If you can ride it, drive it, pull it, or use it to work with or on/repair something...... There's a booth displaying it in Louisville.To my knowledge, there is no other show which compares to the NFMS. On their website, it says over 850 exhibitors and 1.2 Million square feet. That is over 27 acres, all 'warm', indoors, and FREE!
The only thing larger is the Farm Progress show held in late August (outdoors) each year, alternating between Iowa and Illinois. In fact, the new 2032r and 2038r were announced at the 2016 Farm Progress Show.
In any case, please reply to this thread, or contact me via PM if you are interested in meeting up with Dieselshadow and me on Friday. Also, there is some discussion in our household of Katriel coming down to see the show on Saturday. If she can make it, we will spend 2 days there.
We would love to see any of you who can make it.
I found out that this same outfit has show in New York later this yr. these buildings was BIG, inside, they had several rows lined inside, where u walked up and down the rows to look at things. first time in my life to have ever seen anything like it. I LOVED IT. My friend called me this evening to ask how my knee was and how sore i was after yesterday.:laugh: I would love to go next yr agin with him-hopefully.This keystone show bigjim is talking about sounds fairly large and similar to the NFMS in how it's held in different buildings. Although connected to one another, the NFMS is held in basically different buildings due to all the additions to the place over the years. I'd hate for someone to make their first trip here and be disappointed to not find one single building large enough to contain 27 acres all by itself. Wear a good pair of shoes or don't forget the charger/chord for your hover-round. The NFMS is sprawled out and to see it all will require covering some ground!
:nunu:that would be really low of them creeper cops to do something like that. but...............i have seen just as bad in my own area. yrs ago-20--to 25 yrs ago, we had a creeper cop who wanted to rise up in the ranks very badly, so on Friday nights he would sit and wait till the races was over, and then pull certain trucks and trailers over, as he had been walking in the infield, while the race was going on. this made a whole lot of enemies of him. A lot of it was just small things, like light's out, maybe a tire with just not enough thread on.Make sure if you drive your diesel truck that you're not running offroad diesel. I heard a few years ago the law was there checking tanks for it. A friend goes every year as he works at a tractor dealership nearby.
