2018 Argos reports and pictures

We arrived home last nite. Tired but very happy we went. A most wonderful gathering this year. I learned so much from everyone there. And the efforts by the Lemlers, Mike R., and the ladies and daughters of the gasifier guys were the bedrock of what made it successful in every sense. Thankyou everyone!

That little ranger build was and is a very uniqe cool custom build, the take off speed power that 4 cyclinder truck had really made my weekend, as i had been looking too see a four cylinder power take off in person.We were nearing 70 mph well before the salvage yard.Hands Down,Nice Job on the ranger.

I should have menchen i enjoyed meeting Wayne Keith and chris in person, and seeing Wayne Keith gasifiers trucks were an eye opener on sizeing while building,after seeing the WK trucks in person’ it give’s me a better overall preview of his design. It was amazeing how fast and smooth Wayne Keith can switch between dino and wood gas.

Sorry, I was too spellbound by a 10 year old youngster giving useful information to a room full of mostly old-timers!

That young man gave a very good speach i agree, very knowlegable, young man.I think that was billy alibamas son, sorry i have never been good at remembering names.I think i was 15 years old before i had speech class in public school, or spoke in front of a goup off people.Very good training though.

Robin,

We are neighbors (New Hampshire and Maine), but had to drive to Indiana to see each other. Great seeing you and the whole DOW crew!

I learned a lot. Thanks to everyone who took time to walk me through your great builds.
