Vacation & MiniFests

Postby Mr E » Wed Jul 10, 2013 8:50 pm

Well, to celebrate my retirement I took a little trip last week to visit Matt & Teresa in North Carolina. Stopped in Gillsville, Ga. on my way up and had lunch with Kodiak. Had a wonderful time getting caught up on the goings-on and a great lunch at Cracker Barrel.

Stayed with Teresa & Matt until yesterday morning, exploring North Carolina and even made it to an antique tractor and steam engine museum with Matt & Mert. Great times! Also met Dale Finch for coffee and pick up some Cub Express stuff for Raymond Durban. Got to see the cub & Super A that she has restored.

Drove over to Lebanon, TN yesterday. Steve Koons came over and picked me up. Went to his awesome farm and took a look at all of his antique tractors. Man, does he ever have some fine toys. Failed to get any pictures, so we are going to have to do that again. :lol:

Then we went over to J. R. William's place to visit with him and look at his red toys!! Boy, that Super MD is special. Runs as good as it looks. Got to drive 'em all. That JR is such a nice guy. What a great time.

Then this morning met Steve, JR, Ron Smith & Roger Smith for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. We had a great waitress that kept the coffee coming, so we had a great 2 hour visit. All of these guys have been to several CubFests, including DSCF, so it was time I paid them a visit on their home turf.

Steve & JR even took me along as their guest to their Antique Tractor Club meeting Tuesday night. Got to meet about 20 of the club members and even won a club T-shirt (one of the door prizes) !!

Thanks to all of you gentlemen for taking time out of your busy schedules to extend such wonderful hospitality to a tractor buddy! Can't wait to see all of you at DSCF 2014. If I'm lucky, perhaps Billy Ray and I will be able to take a road trip and see you again before then.

What a great 2 hr visit at our local Cracker Barrel with Mr. E and the TN gang. Good to see Roy and others, including big brother Roger. Looks like Roy has jumped into his retirement mode with both feet. Seems that I heard something about running a sawmill. Hmmmmmmm?

If you have any room Roy, swing by here on your way home. I have some heavy stuff for Raymond too.

Already home, John. Could have dropped by if I had known.


Dan, did not make it to Denton. We had plans to do so on Sunday, only to learn that it ended on Saturday!! Thought about it a little too late. Will do better next July. :{_}:

If you were on I-85, you were within15 minuets of me, also Dennis Carpenter (Ford car, truck, tractor) Reproductions.

Well, let's just see what we can do to correct this. Sounds like to much of a good time to miss. Next trip I make to visit Teresa, I'll drop a note and if convenient let's get together.

Sounds good Roy, we have Cracker Barrel, but I prefer some local restaurants ( Lexington style BBQ ).

Gary's BBQ has been a local institution since 1971, he has two T-Birds inside behind glass. I went to school with him. Michael's Grill has killer BBQ chicken and BBQ sandwiches that you sometimes have to eat with a fork! Sometimes he drives his 56 Crown Victoria to work.
