My Brother in Chapin Ill. sent me two CDs, of tractor rides and dinners that he participated in at Jacksonville, Illinois. I think the Chapin Lions club sponsers it. It sure looks like fun. they meet at the lions and drive to Prarieland muesum in Jacksonville, and have an outdoor feed, and a lot of socialising. Does anyone know of simular meets in the Puget Sound region? All brands of tractors were used in Ill. Ralph

No he does'nt, he is a town farmer, with a case vac, that he drives in the rides, however Joe should know most of the folks there, and I can e-mail the question to him, for an answer, There is a resturant, coffee shop in town, that all of the older farmers collect at, for morning coffee, and bull session, he will have a lot of resorces, from that area. I visited him 3 yrs ago, for 5 days ,and that was what I stumbled into, around 8:00 am, while trying to find my morning coffee.When I was asked who I was, and mentioned Joe's name, I was invited to leave my little table and join the group at the big community table. (Great back home guys). I came back home with an allis corn planter, from one of those guys barn. Great for my sweet corn patch. Ralph

I"m Ralph WD45"s brother. The 450 John Deere you mention was sold to Charlie Shireman, the main owner of Shireman Farms of Scott, Morgan, Green & Brown Counties in IL. Charlie is also the God father of the Western Illinois Tractor Club. He owns several antique tractors, combines, plows and other equipment that he likes to use on demonstration plots. I"m the secretary of the club and we're getting ready for a big tractor cruise in May.

Lots of big boys up there, or at least used to be.The hannibal -Ouincy area, was our play ground years ago. I came out of Pike Co. The milton- Pittsfield area, and we were Dry, and had to travel up there to find a drink. But that prarie land was great ground, to farm. Too bad that I was a big gangly teenager, and didn't pay much attention to business. In 2000, when I got my 10 acres, I found that I didn't know how to level a plow. I guess my Dad or uncle must have altready done it , by the time they put me on the seat. Probably had girls in my head. Ralph
