Thumbs up 2017 Coolspring Show

A attended the 2017 show this year and had a great time. I arrived Thursday morning at about 8 AM, after a 5 hour drive, only to find the field totally packed. I met Jake at the gate, and he told me he had only one spot left, and I wasn't going to like it. He was wrong, I loved it! it was all the way in back, at the end of the row, and next to a sharp turn in the field road. I had brought several model hot air engines, and my AC LM 46-B display case, to exhibit. Although the spot was hot, there was a bit of shade from trees on the other side of the road. Thunder showers in the afternoons, both Thursday and Friday helped cool things off, and they didn't last long. Saturday was different, and dis-appointing. I got there late (about 9 AM), and already there was a steady stream of people leaving! (BOO-HISS). By the time 3 PM rolled around, there were only about 10 of us on the entire field.

As for the show itself, there were a lot of hot air engines there, some models and modern, some VERY old and all original. They came in all shapes and sizes. Lots of gas engines too. I only wish someone could rent butt buggies there, as with my stroke, walking the field was a real b----h! I made the full round on Thursday, and it took me over 5 hours Not the show's fault, I just can't walk that far without stopping (damn stroke). I did take my time Friday and Saturday to see the permanent exhibits. Even with the sporadic rain, the field held up very wel, and I didn't see anyone get stuck this year! I Can't wait for next year!
