Was in VT today, 


 
Big, One was 900lb. All kinds of things to see at the fair, 
One guy making a chain out of wood 


 


 
Nice wagon.
How they made water pipe back in the day.


 
A spade bit on it I think.


There was a bunch of tractors there for the pulls too. Some will add weight to get in a heavier class.


 


Ann and I stopped and had a talk with Ross, Telling him about my H bridge.


 

And hung out with some buddies of mine.


 


 
Do you think this old Crusty, Scrooge, New Englander in the glacier north fits in? 

All and all Ann and I had a great time.

I wish our fairs had that much cool stuff, mostly we get rides, carnies and Walmart folk.

I was at Tunbridge on Saturday, bit of a drive for me but we usually camp out for the weekend. By far our favorite fair!

My wife and I used to enjoy the fairs when we lived in NH. The Deerfield and Sandwich Fairs were 2 of my favorites.

Those fairs are a far cry from ours. Ours is a carnival, food booths, politicians, a few vendors of various items, and a stock car track. Also a few barns. I really like the old cointry fair atmosphere the ones you have shared have to them, Peter! They look like something I would actually want to go to and spend the day there!!
