  1. Even though I’m retired now and this tractor is now a trailer queen, not the same tractor but the one we farmed with in the early 70s was and will always be the best tractor ever owned. I ran the snot out of it back in the day and loved every minute of it.
  2. I was watching Pickers this morning and they were in Minden, Nebraska at the Warp Pioneer Village. Being it is only 54 minutes from Grand Island, I thought it might make a nice side trip for the day during Red Power Roundup. Does anyone have any thoughts or know anything about the place? Jerry
  3. Thanks so much for the kind words. My health won’t permit me to do the big tractors anymore so I’ve down sized to these little guys. They are darn near as hard to work on as the big boys. as for the hat, I’ve been an avid Purdue basketball fan for over 50 years. I’ve accomplished everything on my bucket list except for one thing, a national championship banner hanging in Mackey Arena! So you will only see me with a Purdue hat until the end of the season. After the season I will only wear an IH hat. By the way I’ve worn that same hat for over 30 years. thanks again , Jerry
  4. That is a great place to visit. Where next, Billy? jerry
  5. I was a co chair 2010 Laporte, Indiana. Believe me it is a lot of work. We got lucky with help from other clubs and generous volunteers. If. We’re 10 years younger I would try it again but as of today, I would be 78 years old before we could possibly bid for one. We have some younger guys in the club that are tossing around a bid for northern indiana but they need to step up and get it done. on another note, I was totally amazed at the turn out at Springfield , both exhibitors and people. Who would have ever thought that the high fuel prices didn’t stop people from traveling to the show. My hat is off to all attending and the Ohio chapter for making this one of the best shows. jerry
  6. Been to this place. Quite awesome. Where to next ,Billy? jerry
  7. Lot of arrivals yesterday. Very nice grounds. Lots of room. I think it is going to be a great show despite the heat.
  8. Will be dragging the fifth wheel down on Tuesday and staying until Saturday. Looking forward to seeing everyone. jerry
  9. Was planning on being there but a death in the family trumped that. Hope the weather is good and all goes well. Take lots of pics! jerry
  10. Know a guy that got a new high speed CIH last year. It has all the down pressure bells and whistles. He runs 11 mph and has a 100% perfect stand. The cost of the planter was almost unbelievable. Jerry
  11. We are still going but have canceled several of our short camping trips this year. Last weekend we went on a 100 mile trip to eastern indiana. When we made the reservation at Christmas we got the last spot available. Over the weekend there were at least 20 empty sites. Mgr said that people are cancelling every day due to price of fuel. jerry
  12. That thing looks great for a tractor coming from a dairy farm. That will shine up nice with little work. Nice find🤓 jerry
