We finally got a week to get away the beginning of August so we headed out to the Midwest on a road trip.
Stopped at Hill International to check out the inventory...
And this dealer we like to visit in London, OH with all kinds of old equipment
Across the road from that was JD Equipment
and not far from that was the Eby trailer place.
We came across this dealership where we spent the night in Crawfordsville, IN.
This truck dealer was right beside it
We also stopped at Antique Archaeology to check on the Picker's new building.
Then a few miles on west we ate at The Machine Shed we have been to a few times before.
Across I-80 from that we checked out the Peterbilt and International dealers.
and on west my favorite windmills!!
This little tractor was in Avoca, IA at Titan Machinery
This cute little bug was in the same town.
Lots of beautiful crops even tho it was rainy in the area and we couldn't see far.
In Western Iowa on I-29 north, lots of the fields had water standing in them or were drowned out from earlier rains.
On into South Dakota we noticed they make hay off the sides of the interstate.
Very long straight stretches of the highway.
On I-90 in the very southern part of Minnesota we came across an oilseed plant and ethanol plant together. The trailers were lined up to unload.
Then we got into the Wisconsin Dells area.
Lots of irrigation in Indiana.
Cute little round barn.
Spent the night in a Hampton Inn and some very talented person had shaped a towel or maybe more than one into an elephant!! We didn't take it apart it was very cute!!
Back into Van Wert, Ohio we came across another John Deere dealer. This 40' head would make soybean harvest go really quickly!!
Just east of there in Delphos we went to H G Violet again, a place with very nice used equipment we have been to before.
The crops look beautiful everywhere.
Then it was back home to Maryland and thru Sidling Mountain.
As always it went way too fast!!
