we went to the last one and piggy backed it with a local auction, I doubt we will go again this year. Anyone going who hasn't been before, be warned. Its an old airforce base, and the show is very spread out. They do have people movers running, but its still a lot of walking. The bad thing is, there are so many golf carts and gators its actually hazardous to be on foot since the runways are kept open they have plenty of freeway to floor it, and floor it they do and keep the same mentality when they turn off. Its bad enough that that alone is enough to make us consider not going back.
Show wise, there is a LOT to see. every major brand is well represented. Personally, we were disappointed though as our preference is pre ww2 and there wasn't a lot of that there. They had parked the beautifully restored E-B and Fairbanks at the far corner behind a large tent, so I don't think a lot of people ever realized they were there. We were told they actually discourage steel wheels in general. No hit miss engines, they were also discouraged and the only steam was the Case 110. Lots of early big 4WD and 60's era, if your a fan of 60's and 70's tractors this is a great show.
The feature was pickers and combines, and they put on a good show with well over 100 corn pickers in attendance. Problem was, there were more pickers than corn so over the weekend everyone only got a couple of passes. They didn't really have set times, each demonstration seemed to be on its own and they tended to overlap with dead time in between, then everything going at once. We were waiting to see the gp and waterloo boy team make their pass so missed the plowing.
All in all, it was interesting to go once, especially since we were already going to be there for the auction, but not sure we'll make the 3 hour trip this year. This isn't a great show for early ag guys, but if your into the muscle era and like big 4WD, you'll see a lot.
I didn't take a lot of pictures but what I did is here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.251496361548583.65916.100000646620177&type=3

I was going to post some pictures here, but they are too large.

The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
