Tom Sampson and I had a great time at the swap today, but could have done without the 8-point buck that ruined our trip first thing in the morning. I hit it at 65 mph and we were very fortunate that it did as little damage as it did. It could've went up over the hood and ended up in Tom's lap. Friday the 13th...Go figure.

I had a great time on Friday. Sold some junk, bought some junk and mostly just shot the bull. In case I forgot, thanks for lunch Chuck!

Arrived early this morning and the place was packed.. It stayed busy until after 2-230 pm and then started to thin quick. Had a great time and got to catch up with some old buds!

What is it with deer and engines ?? Glad you two are ok and was able to motor home under your own power!

This pic was Dec. 22 08 while returning from Evansville Ind. after picking up two engines. $ 6,500.00 damage

This year was the first time I was able to stay for both days.
Not much buying and not much selling but the weather was terrific. The time spent with old friends and meeting new ones made the trip more than worthwhile!

Thumbs up Re: Wapakoneta Ohio Swap Meet

I was there Friday and Saturday. Had a great time shooting the breeze with everyone. Had probably the best weather I can remember for the whole event. That had to reflect the great turnout. Sold a little and bought a steam engine. Just a great time!!

I didnt go to the swap meet, but these two engines came from someone who was coming back from there.
