This is turning out to be my best summer in a long time. Yep, following skips masterly restore of a rare Herald BB with many thx to sunny (and others), I have been alerted to a #8 that resides in a land far far away. http://www.unclehenrys.com/classified/4 ... %234336502
The place is called Hudson in a state called Maine. I have paid a non returnable cash deposit and paid the asking price. The man is called Chris and he is really a great guy to talk to. I am looking forward to meeting him.
It's a long drive for me but I was inspired to try the excursion myself after reading Ernest Shackletons - Escape from the Antarctic, a feat of navigation that is second to none in the annuals of history.
Once I get North of the great divide called Portland it gets really scary from there. I am bringing along a GPS and it is in the height of summer but still this is going to be a nerve racking trip. I refuse to deal with the Independence Day traffic lunacy but will make the sojourn the week after. Perhaps I will write a book about the trip.
... and yes I have a place to use it...... Many more photos coming once I get my sticky hands on it. I sold my Oliver 77 to pay for it
, I am now down to 12 tractors.
