I'd like to see pictures of his truck that we hear so much about. Preferably from multiple angels and a couple pics underneath of the fluid film coating.

Coonman don't take offense either it's in fun but I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to see pictures of your truck.

Did that one time going to the Minnesota Trappers convention in Barnum. Left Iowa it was 97 and as humid as today, got there and tent camped with no blankets and froze. Got down to upper 40s with no humidity. Had most of my shirts on and a sweatshirt. Luckily my sister and BIL were coming up the next day and brought me my blankets and sleeping bag. Wasn't ready for that 50 degree weather change.

Every convention I've attended a lot of, but not all, dealers and tailgaters were packing/packed up by noon on Saturday. Get there early and get your list bought is my advice.

Schedule in the program says convention closes Sunday at noon. There's a full day of demos scheduled on Saturday as well. Dealer buildings close at 6pm on Saturday. I've got my list ready. My wallet will cry tomorrow.

The dealers have a long way home and they have been there for a lot of days, by noon Saturday they figure the few sales they may make after that will not off-set their desire to get home. I have been a dealer and I know how they feel. There will be a few who stick it out til the end but by 2pm tomorrow most will be loaded and headed out.

What ADC said is true about a lot of the bigger conventions Iíve been to. Itís sad but true. In my opinion, folks that come on Saturday deserve the full convention experience, not half empty dealer buildings.

I'd like better look at your fryer set up.. Looks like a dandy for big group.. I've gone back to my big cast iron pans on my LP burner for smaller fish fries.
