All, since we have not been together much due to other circumstances. I would like to invite the ODSS brothers to a weekend on my family's farm. The dates will be May 13,14 and 15. I will be taking Friday the 13th off. If anybody would like to arrive Thursday the 12th, please don't arrive till after 3:30pm. There is a haybarn we can wrench in, and a lot of room out and around said barn. Accommodations will be exactly the same as Winchesters set up. Sleep under the stars, in the barn or on your truck, so bring your cots. There is plenty of room for trucks and trailers to bring your projects. You may also bring a tent or motorhome. NO HOOKUPS. If you bring an RV. We can provide water to keep your water tanks full. There is a pumphouse for that purpose and to wash up. Also, porta potties will be provided. Power for lights and chargers and other tools may be an issue. Maybe, we only have 2 or 3 outlets in 2 buildings. As this moves along, I will provide a map of the property so getting back to the farm is easy. This farm does work, and family members will be in and out to feed the cat and there will probably be hogs to feed. Let's get some discussion going and start planning a great weekend

Sounds like fun Mikey. Thank you!
If electricity is an issue I have no problem bringing my big inverter(quiet) generator for wrenching, lights, etc.

That could work Billy, Thank you! I should add. If anyone coming requires any specialty tools for their project, bring them along.

Sounds like a great time! This might be the perfect event to get the old 1950 NAPCO 6100 loaded up. The poor guy has been sitting for at least 10 years without being started.

Sounds like a hoot! Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it there until Saturday morning-as early as I can. Don't know how much help I'll be, but I'll get there for sure. As it develops, let me know what to bring. I do have a couple of small generators (Honda E2000) if they are needed.
Thanks for the invite!

Mike B, I don't think there will be much to set up. You'll be my first call. Victor, I have 3 outlets we can use and Billys Generator. We should be ok on the generators unless you need one for yourself. Joe, if you can bring down one of those wonderful engine stands so I can restart my 261. All, the barns have no lights. We only have lights in and on the pumphouse and lights in the stripping house. We can stretch cords. Some tripod LED lights would help.
