Last Day in Chickasha, OK "SOLD OUT"

Terry & Joe
Billy, Joe, Terry & Joe

Billy is the muscle & Sales, Joe is long haul driver to get our products there, Terry does everything ( we have worked together for over 30 years ) and Joe is muscle and sales.

We sold out, another great sale. We loaded up drove to Lawton, OK met another crew and they gave us 63 generators to sell. We drove to Duncan, OK, a very dark town, not many lights. The Days Inn has no electricity so the owner let us use the Days Inn parking lot. I drove to a RV park for tonight, sold the owner 2 new generators. We need another good day. Here are some of the guys that make it happen.

Chicksha, Oklahoma

Pretty bad job on that sign...........

Terry is peaking through the window and there is Sammy worn out from greeting customers.
1999 Terry Woodring and I went to the East Coast for the biggest Sale we have ever had. Our 1st customer took a 100 generators. We sold right at 900 generators. This is the 2nd Biggest Sale I have ever had in 36 years. Chickasha has 13,000 without power. Tap has another truck in Lawton, 35,000 without power. We turned the Motorhome into an check out office and the people loved it nice warm and Sammy to talk to. This whole area is a mess, there are only a few businesses open. Channel 4 News from Oklahoma City showed up and Terry went outside for an interview which was good advertising. I just had a gentleman from Lindsay, OK in, no power anywhere around Lindsay. Hearing stories all day from people who went through 1 night without power, makes those pioneers pretty damn tough.

Ice Storm Coming to Oklahoma

Terry Woodring and I will be leaving shortly to travel to the middle of the Ice Storm. Where there is no electricity, no heat, no gas pumps, just freezing ice.

Oh, by the way, while we are there we might sell a generator or 2, or maybe 300.

PS: Sammy will be there also. That a boy Sammy..............I bought him a little sweater.

Elk City, Oklahoma

We had a sale tonight in Clinton, Oklahoma, my first bad sale this run, we lost money. Two more sales to go. Cheyenne, OK and Protection, KS, they are both little bitty towns but I have had big sales at both. Arthur and I are at Walmart in Elk City, Arthur is shopping and I am in the coach with Sammy. I have to get 30 more sales booked, but I now have to take 3 weeks off to get ready for a run of 30.

Duncan, Oklahoma

Another Good Sale, we're on a roll. I've been coming down here for about 35 years it has always been a good sale. I have to map out another run tonight, I have to pick out 20 good sales. We found a RV Park 1 mile south of the Fairgrounds, NO CABLE & NO WIFI, but we will get buy.

All we need is Fox News, Fox Radio Talk & America Right and not a Democrat anywhere around.
I just can't get enough Obama (DBA Obozo) bashing, this guy is absolutley an idiot.

Ardmore, Oklahoma

We are just having a good run, good buyers, good bidders. There is just not many pictures to take in Oklahoma. Oklahoma is one of my favorite states, I have had 36 years of sales down here everywhere. I found a scenic turnout today and here it is.

Kellyville, OK, Chandler, OK, Ada, OK

Just having sales day after day, and listening to Fox News, Fox Radio Talk and America Right 24 hours a day. I just can't get enough of it.
I have to drive about 180 miles tomorrow to buy a damn license that I don't even need for a Saturday Sale. Maybe something will happen tomorrow that will be interesting.

Pryor, Oklahoma

Another good sale, it was 90% Amish, I have always enjoyed them. You don't have to worry about bad checks, and their kids sit there all night and don't move. How do they get them to do that. They all drove their tractors, that way you don't have to pay taxes or insurance. But on Sunday they use their horse and buggies. They don't buy things they don't need but when they want something they'll bid till they get it.

Arthur, Sammy and I are back at Walmart RV Park my favorite RV Park.

Forrest City, Arkansas

We left Georgia this morning bright and early, made it into Alabama, and then Mississippi and Arthur our Truck Driver got pulled over for a surprise DOT inspection. GREAT. We got put out of service because we needed 2 tires, well there went a quick $400.00 for 2 used tires. We finally got going again and then Memphis (to much traffic) then another scale but we sailed through. I put the GPS on Walmart and here we are Forrest City, Arkansas. What a long day, we will finish up tomorrow we have only about 350 miles to go.

I was just reading about Ben Nelson getting booed out of a pizza joint. Good he needs to move to another state anyway.

Richland, Georgia

I had nerve racking day yesterday, getting oil changes, getting some inventoring done, just didn't feel up to par. At sale time I had a small crowd, oh that is a bad feeling and boom....they starting off bidding like crazy, and they didn't stop it was unbelievable. We had a pretty good sale. There was a retired President of a bank and he and another spent alot of money. We got up this morning to go to Richland and had to go through Plains Georgia, Home of Jimmy Carter. I was going to stop and take some pictures, but I can't take pictures of Democrats. Well anyway the Bank President from last night showed up tonight with the Mayor of Plains and they spent about 3 grand and we had another good sale. He told me old Jimmy teaches Sunday School every Sunday. I had to ask to Mayor if he was a Democrat. Hell NO. Then we got along just fine.

PS: I had another good buyer, after he left I found out he is building a brand new Mortuary across the street from the Old Folks Home.

Good Night

One Bad Day in Roberta, Georgia

This morning didn't start off to bad, the Lady let us in the hall to setup the sale. After she left to go to church, the heater in the building quit. No heat and she is not available. Finally about 10 minutes to sale time she shows up, flipped a switch and it started back up. We have a nice big crowd, I started off the first item and no one bids, so I add more to it, no bids. I put up a $20.00 Die grinder and Bits & some dumb SOB holds up two fingers. This goes on and on, no one bids no one gives me any request, I don't have one clue why they even showed up, because they weren't there to buy anything. Sale is over and they have completely wore me out. We load up, and head to the sale, my GPS is wrong and we miss Americus, GA by 13 miles. We turn around drive back to Walmart, park the truck and go to get a bite to eat when we returned there was a security car by our truck. I pull over and asked him what was the problem, this little miniature security guard tells me we can't park our truck at Walmart. It was then my job to be very, very rude and crude. So we move the truck to the Sale location. I have probably stayed at over 500 Walmarts and not 1 time have we had to move the truck off there lot. We came back to Walmart and parked the RV, I am just waiting for this little miniature security guard to come visit. I am very tired, worn out, and I hope I do not run into anyone tonight in the general public.

I watched the Fall of the Rebublic last night 2 hours and 24 minutes. I emailed the youtube address last night, every one needs to take the time and watch it. I was trying to copy and paste the address but it is not working, type The Fall of the Republic in you search engine and click on full version. This will make you mad.

Barnesville, Georgia

Buggy Town Auction, I want to have more sales here.

These are my favorite sales, old Auction Houses with all the good ole boys. This old Auction House draws crowds of 400 to 500 people every Friday. They sell everything from chickens to goats, rabbits or anything you can think of. We had a beautiful crowd and it was a pretty good sale. Good bidders.

Manchester, GA

We had a sale tonight in the Manchester Mill, which was built in 1909 and was a textile company, now it is a huge rental hall. It is 4 miles from Warm Springs, Ga where FDR lived and died..

His house in Warm Springs is called the Little White House.

There is a springs there that is always right at 90 degrees. The sale was no big deal because it had no heat and it is cold down here (45 to 50).

Here's Dillon !

Aunt Connie playing with Mattie

Here is Mattie and I taking pictures of each other.

Carrollton, Georgia

We had a great sale tonight with only 21 people, they jumped right in and bid, they were there to buy. We had a $3800.00 buyer, a $3000.00 buyer and the other bidders just did their job.

It is cold down here, it says it is 18 here tonight at Camp Walmart. My GPS showed 2 Walmart's in town and there is not, there is only one, and it was wrong, I had to call to find out where they were located.

We need another good sale tomorrow.

Enid, Oklahoma

The last night in Enid, Oklahoma, Connie will head to Nebraska tomorrow and I will be going south to Georgia. Connie's sisters daughter Tiffany and her daughter Mattie and son Dillon were visiting and we spent time with them tonight. I forgot just how much energy little ones can have.
Well back to work tomorrow.

Happy New Year

We are still camped out in a RV Park in Enid, OK, not much going on. I am just going to lay around today.
