    That was Mt Hope's auction. I've never been, but I know family that have. Auctions and "mud sales" are great places to find good stuff

    @VenomJockey I agree with finding many prepping things at farm auctions. We found a guy who lives just a couple of blocks away from us who both him and his dad were collectors. It is a veritable gold mine for preppers and we regularly go there and buy things from him to build with as well as tools. What he has there is unbelievable and if we are looking for something we just ask and he normally has it tucked away in some sheds somewhere.

    There's far more than tractors at these sales. The last one I was at had campers, trucks, tools of all kinds woodstove a pair of wringer washers, benches, water tanks, shelving, fencing.. Everything I could think of.

    "Estate sales" are great places to find things, too.

    I have not been to a auction since I was a teenager, this article brought back some fond memories of then.
