Wow cool! I've heard of the logger suprisingly didn't realize the stack could be visible in dry years though. That Gaar Scott is very cool as well.

There used to be a thread under the lugs and cleats section of a guy that found a rumely F I believe and some steamers that were buried to hold a river bank. He had pictures of digging them up and cleaning them off.

I know where there are two Caterpillar D7 tractors, both 3T models, buried together. Less than 100 yards away I buried 4 Volkswagen Beetles and a 1973 Ford Courier.

Oops, now I see "buried gas tractors", these were diesel.

There is a story about several Rumely`s in a lake behind the old Rumely plant in LaPorte, Ind. This was long before Allis Chalmers took over the plant. The people that run the Rumely museum mite know about this. Good luck!

Some leads for you.

Anybody know if the threshing show story is true. I would not put it past the dnr to reject the recovery.

I know there is an airplane in Green Lake (Spicer) but the Air Force owns it I believe.

The John Deere Dain tractors were somewhere here in South Dakota along the James river. I heard that years back the John Deere company requested to excavate there, but the army corp of engineers denied it. the story that I heard was that those tractors were blown up there. I can ask around for the whole story. But it is a good lead to work with, I believe it is legit.

One of my high school teachers 45 years ago talked about playing on the remains of the Dain tractors at his uncles farm lake near Huron. He told me that during the WWll scrap drive the county dozer was used to dig out the tractors for scrap.

When the brother in law lived on lake byllsbee heard all kinds of tales about model Ts horses and sleighs and outboard motors on the bottom. When it was drained for dam repair some years ago I had to drive down and take a look, all I saw was mud.
