enjoy, Tony. that baler looks really nice for its age. Somebody took good care of it.

Glad you avoided the closed gas stations on your way east.?

Enjoy.  I think my parents are heading out for the show but I won't be able to make it again this year.

Wait....the IL Governor's house is in DuQuoin???  I thought the only things that mattered in IL were Chicago and Springfield when the legislators are in session.  Why wouldn't the Governor's mansion be in one of those?

He’s never actually been there. Main mansion is in Springfield but this Gov lives in Chicago. Springfield is too far south.

There are many Fine looking tractors here already ! 
here are a few that keep winking at me !

as you can tell I keep adding pictures of that 1566 ! It’s a beauty ! 
maybe if I tempt it with a little Hytran oil out the back of the MH , it might fellow me home ??  Well it works with hay and cows , just a thought !

Also, Tony, I know you have an eye for orchard/Grove stuff, but any pictures you could share would be much appreciated.

Daughter's first birthday this weekend, so no show for me

The tanks are for herbicide. Pretty common when you are incorporating pre-emerge into the soil. Tanks on the tractor and spray nozzles on the disk.

Like dads706 said, or liquid 28% nitrogen ran to a cultivator for side dressing corn.  That’s what we hung on our 856 for years to cultivate corn and side dress

The Mrs. and I arrived this evening.   All registered and The 666 "Lucy" is parked among the featured tractor area. No pics as a thunderstorm was rolling in.  Motel in Carbondale messed up our reservation,  so we were upgraded to a 2 room suite! ?

Wife is happy!
