Default Renfro vally, Kentucky

Well I decided to call a buddy and meet so buddys at Renfro vally show. I left the house at 4 in the morning with two kids in the wifes Santa Fe. Pull up to my cousins who got his first engine last week at an auction. I told him to load it in. So we headed out. Had to meet Rich Martz and Neale Behm down there. This is a show that I will attend next year. Had a great time.


John deere is my cousins, An Ohio ( Fred Van Hook will post a video), Hagan, 12 hp Reid

Tom, Renfro Valley is a nice show, friendly folks and a good atmosphere. Easy to get to as well with its close proximity to I 75. I sure wished I could go but I have a local festival that I've attended since 1973 and its the same weekend. Looks like everyone had fun.

There are a few shows I've never attended, wish I had and don't think I'll ever be able to go to.

The Renfro Valley show is one of them. I wish all them Kaintucks well!

Take care - Elden (a former Kaintuck)

That Jaeger powered clock (actually just a sweep-second hand) is ratcheting on a 60 tooth circular saw blade. I was amazed at the accuracy against my wrist watch... A very nice demonstration of mathematics and pulleys to achieve just the right speed.

I want to thank all of the OFES society and other stakers. I could not have chose a better hobby for my family to be part on. Where else can a kid run around looking and learning about the right things to do in life. They all treat my kids with the kindness and love. I would like to specially thank Rick Dorrel, Rich Martz, Fred Van Hook, Neale Behm and Brady. These guys really love this hobby and love my kids. I missed one guy. I forgot his name. So if you know him. Please email me. He loves my son Robbie like a grandpa.

THANKS
