Hey I heard there was work being done on a bridge on one of the main routes going to the plowday. Check your routes before you go. I should be there too.

Jeff,
That should work fine. 310th (X47) then Hwy 38 to Hopkinton. We'll try to have signs in "Hop" town.

Avoid coming through Delhi. The road that crossed the dam went down river with the lake.

There is a corn maze about a mile away and an Amish "bent & dent" food store just down the road. Good craft things in Manchester and Monticello if the wives want to come and kill time and $$.

Some more very nice Door Prizes showed up from way up North in Minnesota. Thank anonymous grumpy bear donor!

Rick-- I'm looking forward to attending my first "official" plow day. I'll be driving down from east central WI with my cousin and my son. They both are really looking forward to attending their first plow day too! I spoke with Corey the other day and he seems like a really nice guy. I finally got down a couple of weeks ago to pick up my "new" 100 from Mike Masheris (which was an excellent experience by the way--many thanks to Mike) and I have it set up for plowing. I'm looking forward to meeting you guys from the forum that I haven't had the opportunity to speak with in person yet. Now all we need is for the good weather to continue!!!

Jeff,

I have a White Ford F150 pulling a trailer with a Red Cub 782 and likely my Allis 720 SGT.

Will someone please get some photos of Mike H's AC720 for me? Especially some action shots of it plowing!

I have an AC620 which is pretty much the same thing only a bit older. I like saving photos of them. Go figure...

Or Mike, if you'd be willing to send me some photos of it that would be great. The higher the resolution the better. TIA

You guys remind me of a song...

"There's armored cars, and tanks, and jeeps,
And rigs of ev'ry size.
Yeah, them chicken coops was full'a bears
And choppers filled the skies.
Well, we shot the line and we went for broke
With a thousand screamin' trucks
An' eleven long-haired Friends of Jesus
In a chartreuse micro-bus."

Joshua.....carefull calling this an "Official" plow day. I have NO IDEA what I'm doing trying to organize this thing!
.....ah heck we'll have fun right??

Rick--no doubt!!! I'm looking forward to it regardless.

Kraig--I'll be sure to take pictures and also some video clips. I enjoy documenting these kinds of things. My cousin Mike will also be taking a bunch of pics too I'm sure.

We'll be rolling in an old school Black and silver Cummins ram with my 100 in the bed and my 224 Case in the trailer. I will also have Mike's super sharp 328 "Demonstrator" Case (the MTF tractor of the month) also in the trailer.

My cousin and I plowed under about a qtr acre of black sandy loam this afternoon to polish the "'shares" for this upcoming weekend and for me to make sure the 100 was setup and ready to go. It was a blast to use the old gearshift 100 for plowing. I'm really looking forward to putting it to work on that rich Iowa soil.

Mike--have fun running that Red Cummins "oil burner" out west!!! Just be safe and make it back in one piece. My cousin can't wait to check out your 982TD.

"We've got a great big convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight..."

Jeff,
Good work getting set up for plowin' Just about time to put your work to the dirt.
Charlie probably has to shovel snow by now waaay up North, but for sure If you get the bug...come on down. It's not sooooo far.
I'm earning my keep painting bed rooms so I can play next week-end.

Get your batteries charged, mix in the MMO, let's roll some dirt!

Wow. Been busy getting tractors and plows ready. Like Josh my cousin said we did a little practice day to make sure things were up to the task. Plowing with that Cub 100 is a feeling only us Garden Tractor guys can appreciate. I think in creeper gear a guy could pull out a tree.

Well I'm looking forward to the trip. Lord willing we will see you all Friday night and Saturday!
