    I just drain em and run em dry, then its chainsaw smell instead of just gas smell if that makes sense haha.

    I know which saws leak and drain those then let them sit with the fuel cap open for awhile. The newer saws generally don't leak unless they are completely full.

    Not wanting to waist time filling and starting dry saws at the GTG I'll just have to baggie each one.

    Kind of a PITA but I save stress on my aged joints and tendons.

    Mark and Chris have the best setup with the enclosed trailer w/roll out shelf.

    On another note; I've never attended a 'safety meeting' so please point out the dos and donts.
    I. E. Someone take notes for me Friday.

    Address one more time: 3507 V Ave Chelsea, IA 52215. Word of warning too, GPS devices have not always been great at finding this location with accuracy.

    MapQuest tells me to turn south instead of north.

    On my way. Already heavier one saw than when I left home. I'll hopefully be unloading one and a half of them in the morning.

    Stopping at the Mac Museum on my way, I'll see you guys later tonight.

    The only thing better than the weather and food was the people.

    Thank you Mark, Ron, and families for another wonderful event! It was also great to connect with so many others.

    I didn't get many pictures but will sort through them later.
