Coming into Braudus, I don't know what it is or where it's going, but it was B I G, Big.  I'm not  a MM guy, but I like this, and I knew Tony would.  It was across the street from the big mover.

Slow day today.   Gonna take a short ride to Devils Tower after breakfast, give Springer a bath this afternoon, and head east on Hwy 212 tomorrow.   BK

Broadus must be on "to go" place for oversized loads.

A few years ago, I stayed at a motel there, and when I ate breakfast the next morning, there was this disassembled mining truck parked at the restaurant.

A great day,  made a new farmall friend, rode to the Devils Tower, and gave Springer a bath.   I was only a couple miles west of Belle Fourche, when I found Ron mowing hay with his 1941 H.  Interesting story,  Ron's father in law bought this tractor new, and took delivery on 7 December 1941, Pearl Harbor day.  Been in the family ever since.  Ron said this tractor was part of the last shipment, this dealer got with rubber tires.  All the rubber was going to the war effort.  Cool story.  BK

6 or 7 miles out,   and finally near a gift shop, just outside the park gate.  This is my third or fourth visit,  and it's still impressive.   BK

Go another 350 miles east on 212, and you will be almost in my yard-----------

Give me a holler and I will buy a cold one-------or supper------or something.

Let me know if you you are coming this way, and I will supply a cell #.

There is something about an H and a Deere sickle mower that is a perfect combination.  Must be the pto and ground speed ratio that you can't obtain with another combination.

That MM has either been pampered in its life or has been restored at one point. Nice clean machine ,looks like its been setting there a while.

Agree with Ron on the H & J.D. mower that was a good combo and that picture is such a throw back to the fifties ,so common around here then yet so gone from around here for 50 years. It takes me back to a very pleasant time growing up.

    Ron Cook , Sure that's not a giant VOR?:D

       Great pictures ,Bill
