over 9 miles walking at the Tri-state Tractor and engine show in Portland Indiana.

Is the show that big, or were you just having a good time wandering and checking stuff out?

Huge.  People from all over the USA and Canada. Over 3000 engines and 800 tractors in the display area.  Market area is much larger than the display. I didn't come close to covering everything. Maybe walked through half of it. Then if you get off the show grounds the whole town is a flea market.  Homeowners rent their yards out to vendors for the show time. Yesterday was the first day of the "official show" vendors and traders have been setting up for a week. I drove over 100 miles each way to get there.  Had someone who was bringing me an engine from 900 miles away. Haven't been there for about 5 years and it has grown a lot in that time. The bad part is so many are now on golf carts that walking is very difficult. You nearly get run over.
