Starting to get stuff together tonight I'm thinking since its close we ought to have about three trailer loads and one hayrack of junk not junque, but will have some engines and may entertain offers on the 25hp diesel vertical. Mt Pleasant swap gets bigger every year plan now to be a part of it. kp

This year's swap at Mt Pleasant is going to be well worth it. I am planning on being there and hope to see many of you there as well.

Try clicking on this link to see over a hundred photos from last year.

Mt p swap is done most vendors i talked to did well better on friday than today but non the less good i have alot less to put back into the warehouse aka garage. I think the crew that took care of the gate did a great job kudos to all. Its easy for vendors to vent and get impatient waiting ect. If you cant give constructive input to the people that make it happen shut your pie hole. Since the filter is gettting thin..... oh hell i will get to the point MGC you stupid dumb ass you tore up up a beutifull show grounds when a tractor driver would have pulled you out at no pay you wander why people think your an idiot. Its because your a fricken idiot. I dont know how much its going to cost to fix what your tore up dont worry about paying for it just dont come back. Do all of us engine people a favor dont leave your property and dont say your a gas engine person we dont leave property looking like that!!!!!
I had a great time until some jack wad ruined my day. Now i get to explain to many people how theitr park got tore up.

Loved the swap meet . The kids and I had fun. We had enough common sense to ask for a pull out if we needed it to get out. It's sad some people choose to tear up property because they only use that thing on their shoulders as a hat rack

my wife and I had a great time, found some cool stuff to take home, meant some nice folks. We just had to watch our walking as when you get 3-4" of rain over nite, theres going to be some wet spots. I remember Dad getting pulled out back in the 70's when they got a big rain there, so its not like its a new thing.

Shameless plug..........Hope to see a big group of folks down in Denmark next weekend.

How was the turnout? A lot of venders? Does it seem like it's growing.
Is Friday the best day to come? Do the venders stay for Saturday also?
Work got in the way for me to and I did not come Saturday for fear nobody
would be there. Justin

Justin i would say most of the vendors stayed for sat and a few new ones came in on sat morning. Im thinking a few less vendors thsn last year but heavy thret of rain everyday most lokly kept some away. Saw quite a few guys that normally set up just came on sat to look. Promising swap getting better every year. Kp

I might have to add it to my calendar, however, I don't have a set of tire chains!
