Gene,

Do not know if your question is to me because there is no brothers Clemens ask above you question.

But if the question is to us then the answer is there is also an Dutch John.

Work is progressing on Chris' 8-16 Avery. They have gone through the engine. Sandblasted and wire brushed the tractor and are painting and assembling the tractor. Here is a picture of Chris, John and Cisco with the tractor last week.

This is what the little Avery will sound like when they get it together. Looks like they are making good progress.

Here is another photo of a couple of Johns helpers. Dale Howard behind the tractor and Kent Melby on the right. Progress is being made and the last picture is how it looked last night. I was there Monday to put the engine back together for the IHC high wheeler and it was looking pretty good!

Kelly,
The ol' lad mentioned something about the show featuring Avery. Is that this year or next?

John mentioned John Deere being the feature this year. But maybe Avery is a side feature?

More progress in Crosby! Another John Deere D has taken its place in the shop! They will be able to do them in their sleep soon.

The 8-16 Avery is pretty much done…..painted and decals installed. It looks like new!

The 12-25 is going back together and is shaping up nice as well.

Since my last post the 8-16 Avery has been completed and a G John Deere has taken its place. The G will be the raffle tractor for the show this year.
We reassembled the engine for the IHC High Wheeler and installed it. John is still painting the body then we will install it. The timing gear had worn out completely and stripped off a few teeth. John had a new gear made. We installed new rings….bearings were good. Ground the valves! Just need to get the body on and get it running and "fine tuned" then it will be all ready for the show in July.

How is the new motel coming? I am planning my first trip to Crosby in 34 years and bringing my son Jeremy who hasn't been there since he was 9 months old. I don't think he remembers anything. I didn't check for rooms at the Hub because past experience has been it's usually sold out way in advance for that weekend. My wife tried the Guardian but was told they weren't taking reservations but would take your name and then when it got close to that weekend they would hold a lottery for the rooms. So no guarantee of a room. She checked around the surrounding area and found rooms with 2 beds for $150-$1700 a night. Found a place at a small motel at Columbus with 2 beds for $75 a night. I hope it's "ok". Really looking forward to Crosby. It used to almost be my home away from home with all the trips we made up there each year...show time or not.

I had heard rumours of not taking reservations!!!!! But a lottery for the rooms…have never heard of such a thing! Columbus is not to far away! Maybe John could give us an update on the building of the addition on the Guardian Inn. I know the Restaurant is almost ready to open.

Mohall is about 90 miles east right along ND 5 - there's a motel on the east edge of town (701-756-6377).
Just throwing this out there - haven't had the need to stay there, just that I'm from Mohall...

There is a pretty good campground right in Crosby (east side?)with decent showers, etc. - Skeeters can be nasty though!
If you have a passport, there are plenty of rooms in Estevan, Saskatchewan which is a short drive from Crosby. But you better check there too as with the oil boom, there are likely plenty of workers in that area too? Be careful of the red haired gal at US Customs at the one crossing!

Sounds like a typical oil boom town...we were in Vernal, Utah with truck trouble a couple years ago, needed to get into the dealer shop the next morning, & if it hadn't been for a cancellation, we would have slept in the truck...took about 2 hr. of suspense before we found out we had a room. Place was crazy...

Camping could be an option as I have a really nice tent, air bed, etc. But I also know what Crosby in July can be like so an air conditioned room to sleep in would be welcome. The motel in Columbus will most likely be ok but I also know what some old small town motels can be like. On a side note, one of my last trips to Crosby included taking a 10hp Otto out of the grain elevator in Columbus. They were doing some remodeling of the office and found the engine under the floor. The flywheels had been broken off and a floor and office put over the top of the engine. All parts were good except the flywheels. We had a big guy with us that helped us remove the engine. We disassembled it and he lifted it, base and everything, up to us without the use of chains or anything.

Here are a few pictures from last Sunday in Crosby.

The 25-50 Avery is close to ready to start. The high wheeler got a new box and paint as well as a few other dress up items. And a picture of some of the crew….L-R Denis Kuntz, John Tysse, Roger Elvick and Dale Howard. The Cab is going onto the other Avery as you can see some of the original patina shows nicely!

June 1st was Start up day in Crosby. It was a good day even though it rained cats and dogs the night before! Lots of people on hand shooting the Bull. When I left at about 4:00 four of five of the winter projects were running. The IHC high Wheeler made a run down main street with a freshened up engine. The 8-16 and 25-50 Avery had been running and the Spoker D had also been fired up. Im sure Matt had the 12-25 Avery running soon after I left….maybe someone else has a video of it.

Here is a short video of the 8-16
http://youtu.be/Gqp3-2SK97U

And the 25-50
http://youtu.be/WvrcHHnlF0Q

The spoker D as well.

Overall it was a good day!

Where has the summer gone….again! The show has come and gone and was great!

John is getting the winter line up ready to work on! Here are a few pictures.

There are a couple of Avery's also receiving attention this winter as well as the Tilsoils I believe.

Oh and not forget a Huber.
