Golden Harvest Days, Achille, OK (might as well be Texas)

Great turn out with lots of sun here in South Oklahoma!!  Jim and Barb have been a great hosts and the food has been delicious.  We went on a 40 mile tractor drive through Dension,Texas today.  We crossed the Denison Lake dam that was over 2 miles long.  Beautiful country but the soil is so red that I can't believe it can grow anything!!.  Of course, you need to realize I am from the midwest where it is black!!

And yes that is Charlie Kline in front of me (I was driving Jim's 150 NF) and Keith Comfort of Marshfield, MO in front of Charlie.

We will post some more pics later.

Juat wanted you all to know we are alive and well in OK and TX!!

Thats a good looking truck!  Seeing the old Macks is always good motivation.  All it takes is time and money for a restoration.  Let me know where to find more of either!

Hey Gary, did you know you are driving on the WRONG side of the road for a "road run", you will have to remember that when your next over here.

Good to hear of your trip to Oklahoma, hope we get to see some more photographs for those of us who could not make it there, I know there are a lot of Wallis and Massey pieces there and was the grain ripe for the harvesting with those Massey combines?

Keep the photo's rolling.

Malcolm.

No Malcolm, I was driving on the right side of the road!!  The left side is for those coming toward you!!  (I just thought I would help you out a little!!)

I don't think I will ever get "used to" driving over there, especially when someone is approaching from your righ and turns to their left.  I had a mini-heart attack each time I saw that happen!! Maybe I will be better with it next year!!

They do thing differently in the South.  Including how they get to a show.  Three planes landed in a slef made landing strip and stayed the entire day!! If you look real close to the chrome nose piece you will see a red golf cart and Joe Poncelet and his brother being escorted by me!!

Here is an interesting Pony.  The owner said he bought just like it is other than the fresh paint.  Now I know the soil can get hard in Oklahoma but two sets of rear weights much mean they take the hard stuff seriously!!  I also noticed the pressed steel femders with the recessed area.  I have not seen many of these but the owner said they came original with the tractor.  Maybe Mr. Miller can share some insight into these Pony fenders.

Here are some pic of Jim operating his Massey Harris potato digger being pulled by a MH 22.  Of the three potato digger operating, I believe the MH did the best job.  Hopefully, Joe has some pics of the other two.  Of course if you had a bag basket or box you could take home all the potatoes you could pick up!  These folks came in on Friday while they were testing everything just to pick up the potatoes!!

This is Jim' 92 SP Hillside combine.  I can not say that I ever saw one before.

And then there was the green bean picker.  Although the beans were not totally mature, it was interesting to see the machine operate!!

Again, if you had a bag you could could take home what you wanted!!
