Bangor,ME Northern Forest Expo,May17-18 2013
« on: January 02, 2013, 01:22:01 PM »
This is in Bangor Maine,May 17-18 2013.

http://www.nefpexpo.net/Bindex.htm

Last time I checked there was no times on the website. I contacted Northernlogger and they told me Friday 9-5 and Sat 9-4.

I just want to get it out there early so all of you that work outside your homes can sign up for a vacation day and go. All sorts of sawmills being shown off,the last couple years there has been a 1000 hp chipper in use. Lots of chainsaw,skidders,small wood lot equipment to check out. Big trucks and small ones.
I will be taking the Hammond Street exit,I think it's 183.Says Hammond Street on the exit.Much easier than exit 182A.Four years ago I wasted time in traffic.Once I got on to Main St I went by everyone and turned around and came in the way I am going this year.I went up there this winter and tried it.Worked great.Hammond runs right into Main.Do a google. There is ALOT of traffic coming in from the South,not much at all from the North.

Count me in! 8)  Might go both Fri and Sat. ;D  For those of us not used to such equipment those chippers are just insane!  Wish Lucas or Peterson were going to be there. :(

Finally I'll be home for this one!

So are you hosting the after party?   :D

Yep,party at thecfarm. I will have to get the Magicman's recipe for his chicken.  :D :D I will go Friday to avoid the crowd. Than I would like to bring the Grandson up on Saturday.

John,hang in there for the swinger guys. Somtimes they go by a diffeant name too. Like the guy I brought my Heatmor OWB from. I saw his name there as Best Way Wood Heat. No mention of Heatmor at all.

Ya but no grits allowed  :D

I just emailed JS Woodhouse as I noticed they would be one of the vendors, I asked them if they will be bringing a supply of Split-Fire woodsplitters with them to the show, and if so, if there are any show specials for them.   8)

Ask them to bring one with an electric cord too. I saw one 4 years ago there. seemed so odd no noise,but it was splitting wood. I liked that.

That's where I saw/found out about them, Matt. 8)  I'm 20-25min from the show if you want to see mine in person. :)  You too, of course, Ray. ;D

I usually go on Fridays, and I have already marked my calendar to go that day. We'll have to meet up at sometime of the day and get another group picture of FF members at one both some place.

I don't think JS Woodhouse will sell to the public. You have to go thru an equipment dealer.

True.  I got my Split-fire through the local Massey dealer, who (obviously) got it from Woodhouse.  But I found out about Split-fires from seeing them at Woodhouse's 'tent' at the expo.  If only I had the cash to buy all the cool 'little things' at that show.... :( ::) :)

I spend half the year working in Maine. Sometimes I am there during the show, sometimes not. Hope to be there this year though.

I haven't looked yet, can you sign up yet, Ray?  Don't they send something if you've signed up in the past?

 In the past, you signed up ahead of time and they sent out an entry pass free.  I will be looking to get a pass for this year as I plan on going if the clouds and stars line up.  :D

I think you can now, Yes,they will send you the pass. But I always print out the page. Not just so I can save the $7 ?? it cost to get in,so I don't have to stand in line. I signed up a friend less than 2 weeks before the show. They hung onto the pass and he picked it up in the Fastlane.  ;D Just think up a name for your "business" I will put down "the Boss" for the Grandson pass. He'll like that. If there was Tractor Driver I would put that in. He likes to drive,but does not like to get off the tractor.
