Default My Trip To Wisconsin

I just returned from our bi-annual trip to Wisconsin to visit my wifes family. During our stay I made a point to visit someone I met here on Smokstack. Myself and a local friend went to Rosholt and visited the shop of Craig Anderson. The visit was better than expected. Craig was as nice a man as I've ever met. He took time out of his day to visit with us, show us his current projects and best of all, his barn. Wow, what a treat. Being from Texas, it was very cold. I looked hard and fast. Craig was more than happy to stay as long as we wanted. We went back to his shop, visited some more, and then, as much as I didn't want to, we had to move on. Craig, If your reading this, "Thanks You". It's great that so many people of such different backgrounds can have a common interest and be willing to share with others their knowledge and desire for saving chunks of iron that turn.

WOW Bryan!! I AM reading this now and am almost embarrassed at your kind words!!! As far as taking time goes----toys are for playing with----NOT being hidden away so no one can see them. Collectors who won't share their collections should find other hobbies.
Enthusiastic visitors make it that much MORE fun....
Thanks! Craig
