I borrowed this from another site, gives a little idea of the mud we had at GOTO

Note the puddle of "slop" behind the steamer :D the green Terra Tiger to the right was at the very end of our display row.

When I left on Friday evening, the road in the picture had thin slimy mud on it, about two inches deep. Was even worse than you see here. Came back Saturday morning and it was dry.

Kirk, You should've seen those steam tractors pulling at night. They ran a 60HP one (bigger than this one) that "idled" pulling the sled, then started bogging down as the weight shifted forward so he poured the steam to it... he was still accelerating at the end of the track when he had to let off it. Made the gas and diesel tractors look like toys, in comparison. Meanwhile, sparks were flying 40' in the air -- I tried taking some pictures but my flash wasn't strong enough to show much....

The steamers just pull better than the newer tractors. Needed a Terra Tiger to get around here, Charlie left 6.5" of rain, but with the sand it was wet only about a day or so, Looks like there was a few D-21's around.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
