What a blast!!
It was a whirlwind four days!

I’m so happy that I (and the girl next door) had the opportunity to go! I also had the privilege to attend with @Hot Plug and his girlfriend Connie.(I had to twist his arm to get him to go, but he really enjoyed it!)

It was an honour to meet new members and to see everyone that I have met before!

 Here is a list of members that I had the pleasure of meeting…

@Alan Dinan

@Axial Flow

@DT Fan

@DirtBoyz07

@FarmallFan

@farmall57

 @IHhogfarmer

@ihv800

@Littlefeller

@Lazy WP

@nate

@nepoweshiekfarmalls

 @ny bill o

 @Pete1468

 @sandhiller

 @SDman

@Tonyinca

@Wi Ih

@1586 Jeff

 I don’t think I forgot anyone, but if I did, let me know…

There was a few I was hoping to meet…

I really wanted to meet Emma…and @lorenzo would have been all right too! Lol

I was also hoping to meet @Diesel Doctor

 Here’s the group picture from the first day,I am the ninth from the left.

 We also went to visit the museum of American speed in Lincoln, that was an amazing museum!! It’s unbelievable until you see it, and even then it’s hard to believe!

 I thank everyone in Nebraska, who was so friendly and respectful!

It was like I was wearing a big sign that said be nice to visiting tourist! Lol

I am definitely going back to Nebraska in the future!

Glad you took the extra time to see the Speedway Motors Museum. Hope the tractor show met your expectations, wish i could have been home when it was so close by. 

How far from Spencer Iowa are you? I’m going to attend next year regardless of what is going on!! 4.5 hours from home, I have to get there!!

I can be at the museum in 7 minutes , Several of the items on display are things i either sold Bill or bought for him at auctions.  Been through it a hundred times.  Another amazing thing about Speedway Motors is the warehouse with its moving parts wall.

Glad you guys had a good time. Trying to talk HP into Half Century of Progress, might need your help convincing him! They let him back across the border so must be because he had good chaperones!

They might let him in but the other Canadian guy and the Pennsylvania guy he might bring would be the trouble makers.  Sniff, sniff.

I don’t know… I should have taken a picture of the sign! I have well over 100 pictures from the museum! It is unbelievable! You have to see it to believe it! Maybe you could ask Lorenzo, since he only lives seven minutes away, he could run over and check for you. Lol.

I would love to go to that show!
I’ll try twisting his arm!

Might have to kidnap him!

We were told on the combine tour that all the machines setting South of the plant are missing something.

Maybe a computer chip, a decal, or the like.

That is a lot of iron that can't be sent out because it is not complete. 

Supply Chain woes?
