2012 Yount's Antique Farm Machinery Show

and Beckley's Ride

 

Wayne Beckley hosted a wagon ride for the members of the Kentucky Trailblazers in conjunction with Yount's Antique Farm Machinery Show again this year.  The show was held on Friday and Saturday, August 24-25, 2012 at Yount's farm near Pleasureville, Kentucky. Members of the Trailblazers started to arrive on Thursday afternoon, some of them having driven their teams and wagons over to the show from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky about 30 miles away.  There was plenty of activity on the grounds starting early Friday morning with demonstrations of some of the antique equipment on display and several large antique steam engines moving around.  Wayne Beckley had his ground driven mowing machine hooked up and was cutting the grass in the part of the camping area.  Twice during the day, groups of wagons left the grounds to ride the back roads of Henry County. One group went about 10 miles in the early afternoon and those same wagons along with some additional units went out again after supper and rode until dark.  On Saturday morning, a group of 12 wagons headed out in a different direction and covered an additional 15 miles or so of the scenic countryside.  There was the usual pot luck dinner on Saturday evening along with some homemade banana ice cream that Wayne had prepared.  Following dinner, some folks watched the antique tractor pulling that was underway while others headed back to their campsites to spend some time laughing and joking with their friends.  Officially the event was over on Sunday morning and many folks packed up their trailers to return home.  There was, however, that group of diehard horse folks who were preparing to drive their wagons back to Lawrenceburg.  Some Trailblazers just can't get enough fun.
