Today I went to the Rock River Thresheree. What an interesting step back into history. https://www.youtube.com/watch?... I took a couple pictures too.
An old bailer.

They had lots of yard sale types of booths set up, and I got a Tractor manual for my old Ford 8N tractor, and also I got a piece of Garden Art.

Makes you really think about what life was like back in those days. A much simpler life and full of hard work.

Well, the machines of those days one could work on and fix if you had any mechanical skills at all. Today's machines are all computerized. One of my farmer friends who has all of the latest in farm equipment, had a problem with is corn planter. Took forever to get an expert out there to fix it. Smiling

Yes, and I hate it! Most of my stuff is quite elderly and still fixable.

I ran into this nice collection a few years ago on a dirt road on one of the San Juan Islands.
