I see that..... we're roughly 37-38 miles apart. I'm guessing you have a fairly good map if you found where I'm at on it. 1 square block out in the middle of fields & timbers, it's not on Most maps.

Several good shows in the area, and other ones within reasonable driving distance. Check out the calendar links to shows and other events, there are some that show up on here that don't get advertized other places. Some people map out their summer vacations around the shows accross the country.

Lots of good information on this site whether you're looking for help with steam engines, tractors, gas or diesel engines, cars & trucks, etc., etc., etc..... It will keep you busy for hours at a time.

Sending you a "Private Message" to get off of this thread with this conversation, and leave the thread open for others to "Meet & Greet" with you.

Sometimes people get lots of 'welcomes' and sometimes few to none.... Hopefully more people will join in welcoming you to the site.
