Yes, Yes. I'd like to echo Gene's words, Great Hosts. I would like to express my sincerest thanks to all the Epping family, their hard work and their generous hospitality, Wow, what great host's they were. We had a great time, and the Epping family made us feel so very welcome, they were thanking us for coming. Well we thank you for inviting us. Truly your engine collection is unmatched. We appreciate and commend both Rod and Chris for sharing this collection with all of us. We sure enjoyed all the great food as well, and commend your wives, and daughters for all of their hard work. Thanks so much, Leonard Fausset

I too would like to share my thanks to the entire Epping family. This was one of the best engine shows that I have attended. To get up close and personal with engines you only hear of and see in pictures was a great experience, let alone see running. Rod, Chris, and Grace also taking time to talk to myself and my wife and thank us for attending was very personal. Thanks again to all the Eppings..Bill and Maree Trotter

Thank you guys very much for the kind words. It was awesome to see so many of you & we want to thank you very much for coming. My only regret is that the time was too busy and too limited to get to visit with each of you as we would have liked to, but we do very much appreciate everyone that made the effort to attend. The day went great and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We really appreciate those of you that helped add to the day by bringing some beautiful engines and tractors to show. I hope you all had safe trips home & look forward to seeing you down the road.

Barb and I had a great time at the Crank Up. Thanks for all your time and effort put into this event and sharing your collection with us. And thank you Grace for making the cherry pie--it is my favorite!

I posted a couple videos of the event in another post so they did not get buried in this thread.

Dear Chris, Rod, Grace, Maureen and the rest of the Epping family...

First; Thank you very much for the way you received us - personally and curiously. And thanks for the excellent food your offered!
Second; Your engine collection is at the top in the world. It not only contains many amazing and rare engines, but they also appear in the highest quality – That shows a deep commitment, a great sense to details and a level of craftsman skills that only a small handful of people in this world mastering – Just fantastic!
We are so happy and proud to have participated in your engine crank-up, but also a little sorry that it is over now.
We will definitely see your again!

Love
Helen & Morten
DENMARK

Thanks Epping family for oping your doors. Wow we had a great time seeing your collection and the engines/tractors others brought. It was nice to see some friends we hadn't seen in a while and met some new ones. The food was so delicious! Sam was pretty tickled you started the couple engines he liked. Thanks much.

What an honor it was to have you come all the way over to the US just for the crank up! Thanks so much for joining us. We're sorry it is over also, but very much enjoyed meeting you both.

Thanks for bringing the Witte Michael. You did a great job on it. I really enjoyed watching Sam study the engines. What a nice young man - he was so polite and it was great to see his interest in the engines. You are raising him right. Thanks again for coming.
