Just curious who is planning to attend the Roundup and what IH treasures are you planning to exhibit?  My wife and I will be there, but we will not bringing anything to exhibit.  We do plan to save our energy for next year in Des Moines, less than an hour from the farm. If we did bring a tractor to Wisconsin, it would have been the O4.

 Wife & I plan to be there ! Looking forward to meeting new forum members and forum members that have become friends.

   I will not bring anything because TSA would have fit. and may play havoc on weights and balances of the airplane.

   Its a good thing your not bringing that 04 because I would have to talk you out of that Exhaust Pipe . That is what many of the M's on cotton Pickers used early on. Later they started doing like one in pic.

    Not that I have a Cotton Picker, but you never know when something may show. Fella's wife said I can buy this one anytime but Husband says he is going to restore it. lol.   I am waiting patiently but I only have so many more trips around the sun, if you know what I mean. lol.

my brother and i will be there. we will be part of the F12 restoration project. i'm bringing the McC milker pump and milker unit, and most likely the cub loboy. we would save money on gas if we brought just the milking stuff in the car, but another RPRU tractor won't hurt, and i'm not carrying the milker around the track in the parades.

Looks like I'll be there Wednesday morning through the end of the show.  Don't worry Tony, if you buy anything without wheels I can hold on to it for you until you can come get it.

Wife wanted to take the kids to great wolf lodge in the dells so I told her we should go the weekend of the 18th and 19th. Then about 2 weeks ago I told her we were leaving on Wednesday to go to the show on Thursday I told the boys first so she had no way of saying no because they were more excited to see red tractors than the water park. We will be there for most of Thursday then heading to the dells for Friday and Saturday then home on Sunday. This worked out good I am going to have to plan the family vacation around the show every year. I hope to meet a few forum members in person too.

I may bring one of these, but neither are anything special so I will probably leave them home.

This one's even rustier and more cobbled, but it has a neat story.  It was a WWII midnight delivery tractor.

Both tractors were purchased new by my wife's grandpa.  They lived their entire life just west of Burlington. (Second city west of the show)

CP and Bitty, be sure to stop by the children's area.  We should have a corn pit, pin the wheels on the tractor, coloring, and a pedal pull (with Kent's Big Bar prizes!!!)

Emily has been on Pinterest trying to find a good, fast craft that we could build.

 

If you want to make rope you better be there Thursday night!

Bring one of them, Scott. We love rusty iron, especially with a good story !  Letter series are the featured tractors. .........
