Spring Swap Meet

This years weather has been all Washington with our snowy gas up and this past weekends rainy swap meet. Arriving at 8:45 AM I noticed the parking area was full of customers with the meet scheduled to open at 9 AM. The crowds were good most of the day and the heavy rains stayed away until around 3PM. No matter what you were looking for from cows, chickens, t-shirts, engines, tractors or other treasures they were available somewhere on the showgrounds. Thanks to all who participated.

Winter Gas Up

Snow plows and dog sleds pushed through the snow to clear a path to the site or our gas up. Unaware of a roaring fire in the Neitzels back yard, several members set fire to their mustaches in order to warm numb fingers. Undaunted by these challenges, a large crowd gathered despite the conditions, and by 10AM the sun was out and the snow almost gone. We took advantage of this chance to rummage through John's shop and look at all the treasures tucked here and there. We warmed our bones by the woodstove before heading outside to look at some neat old iron. As always our diets were detroyed by the potluck with stacks of food and goodies. John Corbin was honored for his long service to Early Days and by unanimous proclamation was voted a lifetime member.
