Not this year. Getting it out there is quite the production, two full loads! One for the engine and another for all the support equipment that it takes to show it! It will be featured at the 2017 EDGE & TA North West Regional that Branch 150 is hosting (Snake River Antique Power- our branch) June 16-17, 2017!

I went on Saturday morning. Had hoped to spend more time there but my back injury flared up and I could hardly walk so I had to cut my visit short. May go back next weekend with brace and cane.
Did buy a Briggs WM engine to play with.

By the way, I now live in Salem, but can't seem to be able to edit location in my profile. Anyway, 20-minute drive to Brooks!

It was another great year at The Great Oregon Steam-Up. We went out both weekends and had a great time! A little video for those who couldn't make it

First up, a modified Cat D8 known as Mary Ann that was built for and used in Antarctica


A Siamese Twin Cat D8 built by Peterson Tractor Co, this is a replica of the original three tractors they built 60 years ago (they built this tractor based off their original blue prints)


Video of Wayne's 25hp Titan Twin running


And from Saturday night of the 2nd weekend, a quick shot of the Steamer Spark Show


If you've never been to Brooks, it really is a great show, IMHO, the premier old iron show on the west coast. It is an extremely family friendly show with lots for the kids to do! My boys look forward all year to spending time at Antique Power Land.

Brooks is kind of like the Rollag of the west coast. Maybe not near as big, but it still takes most of the day to see everything and there is something for everyone.
