2016 Rochester Fair

Rochester, New Hampshire

The Maine Pull

As I understand the event (correct me if I am in error):

  A paired team of pulling horses, one teamster per team, a one hundred foot measured pulling length with side boundaries and turning areas at either end.

Five minutes time to pull twice the team’s weight as far as possible, turning 180 degrees after each successful 100 feet of pull.

Winner pulls furthest within the bounds.

Barrington Truck Show ~ 2015

For over 50 years the Barrington Old Truck Show has been a fixture on a single Sunday late in August each summer out back of Calef’s Store  at the RTS 125/9 junction in Barrington, New Hampshire. Lots of disappointment when the 2015 Barrington Truck Show moved out of town a ways down the road to the Star Raceway in Epping, NH.

Trucks and truckers were spotted headed north to Barrington as we headed south to Epping.

Not the same on lots of levels : attendance, commercialism, cost to the spectator, organization & grouping of vehicles, and the grounds in general. Check out the 2014 blog entry.

Change : Change for the better??

Let’s wait and see the 2016 Barrington Old Truck Show’s location:

Is a return to the Town of Barrington possible?

All the same some way nice trucks on an overcast day.

Richard Shindell’s The Kenworth of My Dreams

I sold my old Camaro
I sold my fishing boat
A friend said he would cosign
On a small commercial loan
So I shopped around until I found
A rig within my means
I put fifteen thousand dollars down
On the Kenworth of my dreams

Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park

Hard freeze predicted for tonight and the wee hours of tomorrow morning.

Must be too many folks from northern New Hampshire in the same place at the same time.

A shout out to the ladies from Jackson!!

Crested Caracara ~ A first for me during the past couple months of heavy birding.

Kissimmee Prairie Preserve SP : a great place in the middle of nowhere yet accessible.

Florida, the way it was.
