If you can fit it in see this one (as good or better than the WDM's) and see if they are doing warehouse tours they are amazing!.

Well the time has come I leave home for Melbourne to fly to New Zealand to meet my two KIWI mates and then over to the States and Canada. Hope to meet up with many fellow Stakkers and collector/restorers of old iron on our travels .Will be in Minneapolis the night of Wed 23rd to start our journey.

Norm Johnston from Australia and his friend Jim (Barefoot) Richardson from New Zealand made it to the Le Sueur, Mn. show on last Friday and stayed till Sunday. Had a great time visiting with them, giving them a tour of the show and taking them to my farm for a short visit there. I wish them well on their trip in the US and Canada.

Me saw many tractors that we had not seen or heard of down under.
A HUGE THANKYOU to All of you on the STAK that we meet and who made us extremely welcome, there are to many to list but you will know who I mean. Once again THANKS Norm
