I didn't get many pics or videos this year. Too busy running the trucks! everytime I wanted to take a break more spectators came to watch and I just didn't feel right when no trucks were running around

Had a great time! I wanted to thank all the guys for all the hard work and time put into this years event The track worked great and was easy to assemble Thanks Shawn for all your efforts and resources you put into this. Without it, this would not have been possible Your reward is going to be Indy. Just show up and play! Cant wait to see you then !

Anyway, everyone always wants pics so heres what I got....









and a few pics of the over one hundred beautiful rigs at the show....













A trailer that would make Smiley proud over 130 LED





thanks for looking and already looking forward to next year!

Mario

Almost forgot the video I put together. Unfortunately I didn't get any footage of the loader working
I played in the chip pile for awhile, then I convinced Susan to let me load it. The trailer was half loaded when the steering let go on me! I could still hear the servo working so some part of the linkage came loose or maybe stripped a gear? Too big of a repair to do at the show so the loader became a display very early in the day . Oh well, still looked good on the lowboy and it will be up and running better than ever for Indy guaranteed!

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the pics
I like Yalls roadways its a good setup for grass areas and you dont have to worry about cleanup near as much.Also would be good to put some buildings staged around.

Funny you should say that. The women discussed it and have a plan for at least one building that is common on every Canadian hwy...lol

I'm glad you mentioned that Dwayne. It was just 2 days ago I was thinking about building a fuel stop!
I have lots of styrofoam SM leftover from making travel boxes. I figured I could carve the island and pumps out of that, get some decals made and find fuel pump guns from a kid toy set of some sort???

Ill think of another building since you got the fuel farm......how about a simple one bay equipment repair shop?....yup, that's what I'll make for next year
