    Mike and I left Grand Island Sunday morning and made it home at 930PM Monday night. Think the road home was longer than it was going out to Nebraska. Truck and suitcase are still loaded, except for the whole peach pie that the Lutheran lady at the pie booth talked me into buying on Saturday. Pie is now missing 1/3 of it, maybe defective?? 

    Roundup was great, even made the combine tour Wednesday early without having a prior reservation, via standby line. Good to see old and new friends.

    Now to get truck unloaded and then back to civilian life. Still a couple loads worth of corn to spray.

    Always fun to see you guys. BK

    Its like Christmas in June!!

    In the other threads I have probably shared all my pictures that aren’t similar to everyone else’s. I went through and saved several that others have taken because I didn’t get all that I wanted. But before I left Saturday I made sure to get a few things. The 8x10 photo is a 1939 M serial number 505, the fifth one built. It is owned by John Kinzenbaw, founder of Kinze Manufacturing. It was pictured by author of IH books Lee Klancher, who signed it for me along with Max Armstrong.  I got a shirt with a pylon IH dealer building and 86 series tractor on the back of it and an 86 series hat plus the IH thermos from IH Gear. I would encourage all of you to look on their website! I stopped by Paper Farmer out of Wisconsin and got these pieces of literature, a 1947 Cub fold out brochure since this month is 75 years since my Cub was sold, 1957 McCormick manure spreader brochure that has my #10 in it, 1967 hay rake brochure that has my 3pt mounted PTO driven #9 rake, and the 1984 brochure of the Super 70 Series (this is a great brochure!) Plus a 1984 postcard of a 7488. 

    Long description I know (I’m incompetent to do short ones) but I was curious to hear what the rest of you took home if you don’t mind sharing. 



    Good haul. BK

    Pictures from the combine plant. Thank you to CNH for allowing us to take pictures inside the Grand Island plant. Sad to hear that the Midrange combine production will end there shortly ....its still more or less based on the original IH 1480 design.

    Many thanks to Roger Lewno as a speaker relating to his 50+ years of working for IH and CaseIH. Lots of neat stories about red tractor production from him.







    I really enjoyed the tour. BK

    Yep Bill , Still working---------------I have the one bill is talking about in my shop kitchen . Works just fine and keeps the food and the sweet tea cold.

    But does it keep beer cold???????????????  😆  BK

  6. The IH fridge my folks bought, the year I was born, 1952, is still going strong.  The one in our kitchen just died, after only 10 years.  Seems the newer they are the shorter time they last. Very frustrating and expensive.  We just bought a new washer/dryer, last week.  We were told the life expectancy of an appliance is about 5 to 8 years.  Sheesh. BK
