The good old days. I picked up one of the Gleaner parts trucks in Pierre, SD, and took it to Great Falls, MT, in 1969. That was a fun experience - well, except when some custom cutter came banging on my motel door at 1:30 in the morning to get some parts.
I'd gladly get up and get them the parts, even though it made for a short night. I'm sure their night was a lot shorter than mine by the time they got back to the combines and replaced the parts so the machines could start cutting early in the morning. It was a good thing that I grew up on the farm and knew what needs to be done to get the harvesting done.
The neat part about the Gleaner Caravan was that I could call the factory at Independence, MO, before 2:30 p.m. and pick up the parts at the airport at 10:30 that night.
