I have n one request guys, introduce your selves.  I don't remember names that well.  I talk to so many at the show my little brain gets fried and I can't remember who you are.  I can remember dyno problems that people have called and talked to me about but the name of someone escapes me.   

Except for the tall lanky, grumpy guy from Pennsylvania.  I can spot his ankle bracelet from a long ways away.  I don't think they let him travel out of state anyway.  His electric golf cart needs a charge every 1/4 mile.

That’s a fact!!  I talked to @Pete1468 in Huron and two weeks later I was hauling gravel in his county, stopped to talk so he could tell me where to dump, he didn’t know me!  😥  What would @MTO say?  Hummph! I hate him!  LOL 😂

I probably could have easily recognized you if wouldn't have been wearing high heels while trucking.

60 series combine in the yard.

A 60 series?

 

I wish I would have gotten in for the tour but I think the slots were full. Neat that they opened another 150 slots. I toured the plant in October 2017 so it hasn’t been too long ago for me.

Well as much as I wanted to , sorry I'm not going to make it. One to two weeks later and it would work. Maybe I should retire from farming and buy a damned old H and drag it around from show to show🤪              : Dis claimer: Not intended to offend the H owners.

if I should find a vendor selling strawberry shortcake, I'll have an extra one for you.

I'm not planning on going, I'm still in the field actually using my red equipment. These kind of shows are always held too early in the year.

Not trying to jab at you, but there is NEVER a perfect time for a show!   There will always be stuff to do.. either you make time or you don’t.

It's a good time for some but terrible timing for others . Depends on what you do at what part of the world. Best to just try and make it work out

My brother Mike and I will be heading out Tuesday morning, driving 19 hours over 2 days. Hope to arrive in Grand Island late afternoon on Wednesday and get exhibits unloaded. Be there all 3 days.

 

we are leaving Monday to make driving less hectic. Wonder how far we will get before we start seeing other obvious RPRU travellers?

30 years ago I saw a steam locomotive from home about a mile away.  We didn't know it was coming but wow was that neat.  The whistle and the sound was great.  Wish I could go see it.

I think it was an 8260. I should have taken a picture but I’m always in a hurry when I’m driving semi.

We’re heading out Wednesday morning and staying somewhere north of KC, then finish the trip on Thursday. Should be there sometime Thursday afternoon. Staying until Saturday 

I’m about 30 miles north of KC right off of 169 Hwy. Wave if you come through that way.

Pete, do you know where your booth will be?

I had heard on the west end but I wouldn't guarantee it.  I can post where it's at when I get there.  

I might make a sign that says MTO free zone.  Hehe, that'll make him grumble.

If Mike doesn’t have a display at the show will there be a place for a meet and greet and photo like that n the past? I thought that was a great way to meet forum members just a thought.  

I believe the plan is to meet at @Pete1468's booth.
