  1. That is a great place to visit. Where next, Billy? jerry
  2. 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
  3. Been to this place. Quite awesome. Where to next ,Billy? jerry
  4. Lot of arrivals yesterday. Very nice grounds. Lots of room. I think it is going to be a great show despite the heat.
  5. Will be dragging the fifth wheel down on Tuesday and staying until Saturday. Looking forward to seeing everyone. jerry
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. That thing looks great for a tractor coming from a dairy farm. That will shine up nice with little work. Nice find🤓 jerry

    Glad you’re doing better, Bill. I’ve spent the last month pretty messed up myself. Had my intestines rearranged a month ago. Healing slow but everything is working. At least they found zero cancer! Should be back to normal in another couple weeks. jerry
  11. I've had tankless heat and hot water in my house for 5years. My propane bill vs. the old boiler is less than half. All we did was change the boiler and the savings paid for the new system in 2.5 years. I love it. No more taking hurried showers or having to wait for the water to heat up plus the heat on very cold days is evener. jerry
  12. Happy belated birthday. Sorry I missed it. I’m still one day older! nice 400. jerry
  13. Thanks to Bill and Todd for the great pictures. Sure do miss being there☹️ jerry
  14. Stay away from US30. It is a mess!
  15. Hoping to make it Friday. For the day if all goes well at home. Since the beginning, I’ve only missed one. 2015 we were in Australia. jerry
  16. Planning on going. Was told that camping is only 30 amp and water. No sewer. Supposedly a dump station but those are a pita.
  17. I’ve lost some interest since most of those from the beginning have walked away or passed on. I made many lasting friendships from the early days. I still get on and read about once a week and will chime in if I think I can contribute. A lot of the newer guys are very knowledgeable and that leaves a gap for most of us old timers. last year really threw me for a loop. Staying home and shows cancelled made for a long year. Lucky no COVID here. Then I screwed up my shoulder and am just about back to 75% after total replacement. Plus retirement sucks when the body don’t work right. Getting the camper ready for some travels this year. Got a couple weekends planned with the kids and grandkids but the first big outing will be RPRU. Looking forward to getting together with the old gang. Hoping to have one of my muscle tractors at Rantoul, Lord willing!! jerry
  18. Good luck to you Dennis. Hope all goes well. I know several that are going your route and they are perfectly fine. Thinking of you. jerry
  19. Genesis and T8 new Holland. Even though the T 8 is built on the same line as the Magnums, NH has an 18 inch longer wheel base. jerry
  20. Use Lucas air tool oil. Works longer than wd 40. jerry
  21. Good to hear from you ,Bob. Amazing all the crap that goes wrong when you get older. jerry
