I'll take a couple of loads up when they start accepting consignments -- which is the week before the sale. It's always a great sale--completely run by volunteers for the benefit of the Hudson Valley Old Time Power Association. They had three auctioneers selling simultaneously, last year, and it was still an all day sale. I haven't missed a sale in almost 30 years -- always interesting stuff and great food.

I'll take pictures and post them when I take my loads to the sale.

Making plans to be there now as a seller again. I retired but now I realize I would have to live to be 154 years old to do all my projects. Something has to go. Starting with an inverted water pump and IHC 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 LA, early with no speed lever and different mag. Right now planning on a short bed pick up load. You know how that goes. I will try to keep it from morphing into 3 trailer loads !!

I am hoping to get there this year, I missed last year. I was going to bring my camper this year, come in on Friday and leave on Sunday. However a family commitment just came up for Saturday night so I will most likely be there until 3pm. See you there.

Don't forget about the 3 auctioneers. Because of that the auction ended around 6 PM last year. Bring an extra friend to keep up. A glitch slowed the payout line to a crawl but I expect they will work that out. This new rule has to help.

New rules ... From a letter from them many months ago ===

"The consignor buyer deduction will STOP. Consignors must pay for any purchases the day of the auction using cash, check or credit card. A check for the amount of their sale items will be sent to them post-auction. This is necessary for several reasons and will allow for faster real time transactions and payments. By letting consignors know this now, it gives sufficient time to, plan for next year's auction".

Wow time is short. Need to load up the junk ....oops I mean valuable antiques.

Well it did morph into a truck and trailer load on my first retirement year, Need to thin the herd. Leave today 5/5 with a goal to unload 8 AM Tuesday. About a 6 hour trip total. Stay over at sons tonight in Glens Falls.

I am betting even a Tuesday morn unload puts us in the last 5 or 6 rows.

Highlights ... Pennsylvania Meteor, complete, free original engine, needs restoration. Only made 2 yrs. Cub C 102 runs, drives, mows. Maytags == 82 restored. 92 early, complete hot. Ferro marine engine complete w/clutch, free, basement fresh. IHC LA 1-1/2 --2- 1/2 early, no speed lever, free. Taylor vacuum parts engine, block, crank, wheels, head.

Well, I took a truck and trailer load up to the auction today -- will probably take another load this afternoon. After just one day, there are 7 or 8 rows (A row is about 400 feet long), jam packed with stuff. Engines, tools, parts,tractors, implements, antiques, -- and stuff which just defies description! Still another 4 whole days to fill up the auction site. There will be three auctioneers, selling simultaneously. so bring a friend. (Maybe not a friend, but at least somebody you can trust to bid in your behalf.) (Now that I think about it, I don't know anybody I would trust with my bidding number--so 'll just have to hotfoot it back and forth when stuff I want comes up for bid.)

This is an all volunteer operation --all profits go to benefit the Hudson Valley Old Time Power Association. The volunteers are serving great food, starting with breakfast and on throughout the day.

I'm attaching a few pictures (none of my "stuff") and I will post more as the week goes on. I'll be there on Saturday, wearing my boater hat with my number stuck in the band. ( I HATE it when a bidder bids something in, and the auction has to stop while they fumble around to find their bidding number.)

I picked up a nice KE 11/2 HP Stover, on a nice cart - 500 bucks!7 HP waterloo went for 2,000. Small christionsen sideshaft - bad cylinder 8,000, lawton/lauson engine with mudsucker pump - 600, many others went for good prices. I couldn't see all, I was helping staff and the sale at the furniture building.

A first for me - I was home before dark! In past years, I have not been home before 11 PM, often later. This year, the auction was over around 530, due to one slow auctioneer. The mid and last row starters were done by around quarter to 5. I brought in my stuff about 12 PM monday, they alerdy had 7 rows full! Luckily for us, the major rain held off until the last 20 minutes or so. By the time things ended, the rain virtually stopped.

About 4000 items sold.

Anyone else come home with goodies?
