Lakefront setting with our toys
Our sixty-four mile outing took us through ranchettes with a horse or more, grasslands, hills strewn with oaks and pines, a couple of wet spots, the lake, and then through the hamlet of Elgin, numerous abodes for wine tasting (I doubt that the revenue from the wine
enterprises would pay for the large houses and gathering places.), and finally back to the parking lot of the storage units. Almost everyone returned without a tow but there were some minor hiccups along the way. Tony had to stop as he couldn’t get the gear shift into road gear as the umbrella bracket was in the way. After its removal, we were on our way. Jim W. lost his grill and didn’t know it, but Ed graciously picked it up and bungee corded it on his tractor. Another time, Jim’s self-leveling hitch bracket came lose and it was removed. Thankfully, Darrell D and Jim B, riding in Darrell’s side-by-side, became the depository for fallen and discarded parts as well as providing fuel for others. Along the way, Seth’s Allis-Chalmers became thirsty for a drink of water and shortly thereafter, refused to go any farther, by either running out of gas or becoming vapor locked.(only a half mile from the end) Wayne's International got tired of running at quarter throttle and began to miss, so Wayne increased the throttle, passing all of us, to run to its destination, like a horse that runs to the barn after a long ride. The brands represented were Allis-Chalmers, Ford,International, John Deere, Minneapolis-Moline, and Oliver. Larry Kastens edited by JF
