After hearing so much about Arnie's boiler set ups, I had the oppertunity to go over the hill & meet him & his side kick John & what an impressive unit he was installing. I understand he has a few units left. Oh, while I was there, he turned the boiler on & SOB, it worked. I am impressed. This old guy is still a hand fired kinda guy though. :D

No pictures? Inquiring minds want to see a fresh Van Wert being brought to life.

I have not had the opportunity to meet that pair in person, but I certainly have the contact info handy if I find myself near Cinncinatus ever again.

Freetown...............Nice personal shot of you Fred, but what about the dawg you always travel with? So you snuck over the mountain and caught Arnie and John in the shop...... I told you they ARE the good guys, and have something cool going on out there.

Even for a crusty ole soldier like you, it is good to get out of the barnyard once in a purple moon. You know, no one will think you are 'light in the sneakers' if you go to a stoker. We even have Rubber Tire Tourin' Cars nowadays, so unless they didn't widen the ruts out there this summer, you can leave the hosses home and crank up 'Ole Betsy' (if her husband is out of town) and motor over the mountain; meet some new folks, and come home with a new toy.

Speaking of new toys: I was passed on I-89 today by a Black Suburban pulling a horse trailer that have a plac on the back of the trailer that read: REAL HORSES WEIGH A TON!!! Anheuser Bush Clydesdale's. Merrimack, NH

WOW!!! The Clysdale teams and breeders are moving here (Merrimack, NH) from Colorado Springs this fall. A CLASS ACT!!!
The Barn tour is even more spectsacular than the Brewery Tour. Those animals live in a 5 star facility......any of us should be so lucky. Class people, Class company, Class animals......class act!
I'll take you down if you ever get Bessy over the Mountain and away from hubby for a weekend.........If Betsy has a sibling, bring her along too!! :eek2: :shh: :oops2: bop2 :shots:
