Hello from Kansas

Postby 69ranger » Sun Jan 20, 2013 11:36 pm

Hello to all. I recently joined after lurking for a long time. I have a lot of interest in farmalls and grew up around them. I went off the deep end a few years ago and bought a some Green tractors, but I am back with mostly red stuff these days.
I look forward to getting to know everyone. I usually learn something when I visit the site. It's great place to learn.

Several Brand X Green tractors that sound strange when they run.

Welcome aboard:
This is an excelent site to learn from and also a great group of people to learn to know. If you are able to attend a "fest" that is the best way I know of to meet the people and learn
how to repair/ maintain these intresting little tractors.

Welcome to the Forum. As you may already be aware, there is a Kansas Cubfest that's listed in the "Cubfests and announcements forum". This year it's scheduled for Saturday, May 4th. Pretty close to you in Burlington. Hope you're enjoying your Farmalls.

Might want to look into the N.E. Oklahoma Cubfest also. Looks like you are about the same drive. Take in both.

Brad,

I hope you will be able to come up to Burlington in May. We have a lot of fun. Sometimes, we even stop spreading BS long enough to complete a project. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the warm welcome, and the invite to the cub fest. I have it marked on the calander. i am new this. So what do you do at cub fest events? I have been to many shows with Dad but I take it this a littlt different deal. Many times we go togather, as he is geting up in years. He, and I attended the Cubarama a couple years ago. It was a blast, I learned how to work on a cub mag, from a guy putting on a demo. All and all it was a great weekend, and I ended up with my first cub.
Ike, how do I get directions to this event when the time comes?

Brad, here are some links to a few Cubfests. They should give you a pretty good idea what Cubfests are all about.

Here's the address/map of the Kansas CubFest: http://www.bing.com/maps/#JnE9LjE0NDAlM ... A1OTIxOTM2

Just to the north of the dot, there's a long driveway to the west. Go to the end of the drive and you'll be there. Should be a sign at the driveway entrance on Hwy. 75 as well. Change the "Road View" to either "Aerial" or "Bird's Eye" to get a better feel for what you'll see around that area.

Here's a link to BigDog's article on what a Cubfest is all about: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=51111

I'd echo MidMo's comment about attending the NE OK Cubfest when the time comes too!
