Carroll County Antique Collectors Club

14th Annual Tractor and Engine Show

Carroll County Fairgrounds    

State Route 9    Carrollton Ohio

19 October 2013

Slide Show HERE

Somewhere along our journey in Ohio Terri (my wife) picked up a newspaper named Farm and Dairy.  Since I will read pretty much of anything I was leafing through it and found an ad for the Truck and Engine show that is the subject of this page.  It sounded interesting but I had no idea where Carrollton OH was so as I was leaving the Mid-East Model Engineering Expo I asked if anyone knew where Carrollton was.  Turns out it was, somewhat, on the way back from Zanesville to Cleveland where I was headed.  When I left Zanesville it was just beginning to sprinkle and I hoped for the best.  The GPS took me off I77 and I wove through the hinterlands of Ohio headed for, I hoped, Carrolton.  The ad for the show only mentioned that the fairground was on Route 9 but didn't have a specific address.  I programmed the GPS for 100 Main Street figuring every town has a Main Street.  When I intersected Route 9 I had to make a decision, left or right?  I figured whichever one I chose would be wrong but,  lo and behold I pick left and it was the right choice.  

Did I mention that as I drove the rain got harder?  So, there I was driving through rural Ohio wearing shorts with my rain jacket safe and dry in our hotel room in Cleveland.  Boy, am I a dumb-ass I thought more than once.  When I arrived at the fairground the rain was only moderate so I figured what the heck,  I am here and might as well make the best of it.  I rooted out the big umbrella and forged ahead. Picture me clutching the umbrella in my left hand and the camera in my right hand.  Taking pictures and trying to keep the umbrella from being swept away by the gusting wind.  Cold, rainy and windy.  I don't get paid enough for this foolishness. Oh, that's right I don't get paid at all except for the enjoyment of meeting nice folks in all sorts of settings.  

The people I talked to at this show couldn't have been nicer and I was delighted that I took the time visit the show.

If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page.  Please send to   To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up.  Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For  example if the tag came up  DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 974.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
