    Fort Scott Pioneer Days, Fort Scott, Kansas. 26, 27 & 28.

    Some show up Friday and camp. Most get there Saturday morning.
    We run saws, trade saws and parts.
    A bit of saw racing goes on.

    Watch the tractor parade. Browse the junk dealers etc..

    It's like: 'So many chainsaws, so little time'.

    Bring hearing protection in case AWOL shows up with his Mac kart saw. That pup will make your ears bleed.

    Todays goofy-ness
    I put a big Remington roller
    Nose on a xl12. I didn't mess up the bar or saw. It came out to just under 23 inches.
    I actually made a chain for it odd driver count

    Wow, this thread has sure slowed down since the last time I was on here(yes, I see the irony in this statement lol). I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. My deer season got put on hold this year so I was hoping to com to this site and find a gtg. Anything planned?

    Stopped at a Stihl, Echo, and Husqvarna dealer today. That Echo 590 for 359.99 sure is tempting. I'm reading a lot of good things about Echo. Wish I could justify a new saw.

    I suspect that some of the leaders of the GTG process got tired of being a leader. Perhaps they needed a few more helpers and not quite as many participants to support.

    As for myself, I found that the company of the fine members of the OAMKT gtg was a good thing to enjoy, but attendance conflicted considerably with my families plans. Besides, I'm just not that much into rebuilding and racing saws. It's too much like taking work home with you.

    I have been reading the thread occasionally, but not posting; a critically important behavior if you just don't have anything useful to say.
