I wasn’t planning to go, but was searching the hotels close by and found a room! So I’m going. I wonder if @2+2 Guy would want to come along? ?

Probably not going to make it this year, BJ.

My son’s farm drainage business has really started to take off and he keeps me busy wrenching on equipment. 
I tell folks that I’m his VP in charge of transportation, fabrication, repairs and parts procurement. 
Hope next year at Springfield will work out. Wishing you all the best.

I won't be able to make it this year. Mike can't get time off, and I have too much else going on, farm-wise.

I'm thinking a triple 53' trailer load pulled by a 3788 would be the easiest way to get some tractors there.  Might take you a while

I’d be glad to look also ??

Guys, I need seat parts. The 756 has the hydraulic seat, the 826 is mechanical. Cushions not too good on either. I have no battery covers for either machine. I'm sure there are lots more. Devon can probably help with some of these things. Maybe he'll give me a discount since we're born on the same day?

Don’t believe Devon will be there this year. He said that he is going to Half Century Show.

I can't make it to the RPRU but I am going to Fresno to pick up half a 1926 Buick Roadster! 

I was hoping to drive thru Tony's Almond farm and steal  a pick up load of Almonds!  lol

I hope he doesn't have any long rifles, or he is out of powder or balls.

Let me know when your coming ! love to host you!

Well, things changed for me. 

Originally we weren't going to attend because the wife wanted to go up North. Then originally governor idiot looked like she was going to ruin the 4th here in the People's Republic of Michigan with her Covid rules pre CDC rule change. Wife got ornery and said no way our son was going to miss out on his first 4th of July. So she started looking at things in Indiana. I made a comment about Red Power being in Illinois. Mostly as a joke. Next thing I know, she's got a house rented within reasonable distance of the show to stay at a couple of days. And we're going.

 

Outstanding.  Looking forward to meeting you - and many others.

I found this front half of a 1926 Buick Roadster and I have a chassis to put it on to finish my "WhatsIt".  It has only been 15-20 yrs since I started on it.  No rush when you can't find the right parts.

I better get working on my plan for the Almond raid at Tony's.........  It is so darn HOT that I lost my transmission in Phoenix this morning.  I was in Phoenix at 8:30am,  and on the Freeway headed North to Prescott when I looked in my mirror to change lanes and their was this big ball of smoke, then my transmission went limp.  I coasted over to the side and then put it in gear to go again when I found out I only had 1st & 2nd gear, so I drove 30-35 mph on the shoulder to Prescott (2.5 hrs).  While driving I called my friend to go to my house and get my Dodge 3500 which had the tilt trailer hooked to it.  I told him I would meet him in Chino Valley on hwy 89 and just when I got to CV, here he comes in the opposite direction.  We then loaded up the 4 Sebastopol Geese and then loaded the truck on the tilt bed.  Left at 5am and got home at 5:30pm.  What a day!

I put his name in Google and all I get is that he is on the corner of "Walk & Don't Walk"!   How am I supposed to find him with an address like that?  I need to make this raid in early morning so not to rile up the dogs while they are sleeping.........

We will be there vending parts.  Devon tractor parts cannot make it.  Pilot knob is not going either she cant do it on her own.

  We will have a daily meeting at my trailer at 4:00.  Its always good to put names and faces together.

Make sure you don’t use an IH Autowagon, they tend to get lost with their load on
