I had a little problem with moisture on Wednesday evening while hauling the Huber to the show. After drying out Thursday morning a good time was had by all. Here are a few pic that Joe Hoffman posted in the Gas Engine section.
http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showth...ght=booneville I was off on my engine count a little. We had 1 Huber, 3 K-Gs, and 1.5 Kittens fired up as well as the club's Huber roller on static display.

What happened Andy did your matches get wet?
I always joke with my buddy when I get ready to light a fire, I will start searching around in my pockets then finally pull out a book of matches and say wow I thought I lost the keys.

My everything got wet There was over 2" of rain at home Wed night. I think most of it came down while I was loading. My shoes did not dry out until Sunday. Luckily the show grounds only had a small amount of rain and the conditions were pretty good for the show. On Thursday the 4th grade students come out for various demonstrations including steam threshing and sawing. The uncertain conditions caused them to cancel. I'm not sure who was more disappointed us or the kids. Fri-Sunday were quite nice though. The wind blew the belt off of the separator once but no harm was done.

PS: No worries about the matches. I ALWAYS have extras in case of emergency.
