I'll be down to visit.

Anyone else going? I know there is competition with the Historical Construction Show at Bowling Green and another show at Tompkins near Jackson, MI.

Here is a few pictures from the show.



I saw an owner of a Port Huron but no Port Huron.

Emma,

Where were you that I missed you???

Port is coming out of the barn tomorrow for next weekend's shindig.....and the KW is hauling grain, so couldn't get it hauled.

Nice little show, fabulous flea market and great fun watching them split a log with gun powder!

Beth

Well, if I had pushed the camera button instead of the video button on my phone....I'd have had a lovely shot of Zach starting the Little Bull with a Keck Gonnerman.....and then with an Aultman Taylor..................the steamers won each time. Hopefully, he got the Little Bull to cooperate better today!

It really was neat, but no, I do not have it on video. Others do, though.

Thanks Beth! Not sure that any were at Wellington, but a little Googling turned up some video too.

Just thought I'd post this video of the spark show we put on with my Tesla coils while the steamers were having their own spark show at the opposite end of the fairgrounds which, I must say, looked pretty awesome even as far away as we were. Already looking forward to next year! Big thanks to SteamCrane on YouTube for making the video!
