Well here goes. Went to Luray and this is what I saw.
Robert, if you want, you can post multiple pictures in a single post, just be sure to put one or two blank lines between them so that they don't all run together.
Thanks I'll try it next time. Just wanted to get these out there for all to see.
Late in the afternoon after most folks departed for their motels, a storm front came through with strong winds. Some canopies were not properly secured and went flying across the field. A few of us still here chased them down and tried to secure them. Not all of them survived unscathed...
Robert.. THanks for posting the pictures! I'll post some later tomorrow and I'll post them to your thread since you kicked it off.
Steve - I left around 1pm. I missed all the excitement, although I wouldn't call having peoples stuff getting messed up "excitement".
I think the pan straightener was safe from the wind.
Thanks for posting, whish I could have went.
If those pan tables blew away, we'd have been talking about the Fujita scale!
No heavy iron went airborne, just poorly secured canopies. My Civil War period tent and fly withstood the gale. It's cooled down and quite nice now. Tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful.
Wow, that's some rust-out on that pickup bed! Looks like a GREAT swap meet.
It is indeed a GREAT meet! It's the biggest little meet you'll ever attend. If you come to buy, you'll go home broke.
We are still looking for a Hand Crank Wrecker Boom.....
looks like meets i went to 50 years ago. charley
