Sure some neat items!

Good thing I don't see myself making it, or I might be talked into buying something which would get have me sleeping in the doghouse for a year - if I was lucky - more likely kicked right past the doghouse and have to sleep in a parts threshing machine.

The suspense got the best of me.

Did the Huber tractor go home with Huberman? Where did the steam engines go? The thresh machines moving far? Will any be out and about soon?

Did the proceeds come out well?

My understanding is that the Frick traction engine was a no sale. I didn't get to the park until the sale was over on Friday. Work comes first when there are bills to pay.

The Frick portable went for $2500 and is headed to the Esko, MN area.

Ted, yes that is the one george Ohmann owned at one time. I heard that from a credible source from LeSeuer area...

The photos further confirm, all kinds of opportunities were there that would have tempted me to wonder just how bad it would be snuggling racoons inside a threshmachine all winter.

It did not sell at the auction, but did afterward. Not sure if the new owner whats anything more published so I'll leave it at that.
