20 miles east of Binghamton, NY and I81. The Susquehanna river and I88 are the north and south borders of the farm. Interesting topic. I did a member map in 2004 while I was laid up from surgery

Used to be in PA.................But I may have moved to the Soviet Union and never relocated?????

That has got to be the dumbest post I’ve ever made; ‘East of the Delaware River’ would put me in NEW JERSEY......

Interesting topic. I did a member map in 2004 while I was laid up from surgery and forbidden to do anything outside. This is what I came up with.

I had another world map, but it didn't survive changing 4 or 5 computers.

All the way from the Netherlands!

My grandfather used to be a farmer and was a contractor, he has been using red ever since the beginning. Not always IH tho. His first tractor was a Güldner G40, a German tractor which still is in the family. Has been with us since 1961. Also had lots of IH tractors, mostly European.

Yeah, so you would have been at the old Clark Street site. They moved from that site a few years ago. Built a new dealership right along I-94. The old site was small and no room to grow. Probably when you bought the truck it was sitting in the grass lot a little bit South of the dealership building. Known as Hometown Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep now. Same family owns the Ford Dealership too. That's now known as Albion Motors Ford. 

Sounds right to me. I remember it was just a small place. At the time they were giving good deals.

We are in the thumb of michigan(Ruth), 4th generation, raising the 5th. I move 1 mile to a family owned farm and my wife moved from 1 mile the other direction. The only time we roam too far is a smoking deal on a piece of farm equipment.😁

I’m just across the hedgerow from Seth in northeastern NY just outside the little town of fort ann... we used to find arrow heads, musket balls and a few cannon balls on the farm I grew up on. 
 

Seth, I need more syrup... the only thing left in the house for waffles is a plastic lady looking thing....

This would be a great time for everyone to check their member information to the left of the screen.

I think this is called the Avatar.

If all would at a minimum, put their state on, it would be appreciated.

Sometimes things come up and it would be nice to have a general idea where that member lives.

Just filing out the location would help.

Thanks!

Not far from where I lived when I was up there. I was about 7 miles northwest of Bloomfield. If I had to guess I'd say your near Randolph. 

Yessir, mile east of town and a 1/4 north, honk when you go by.
