    Thanks for all the offers, will post closer to the time where we intend driving, most likely generally take either 90E or 80E with excursions N & S. We really look forward to meeting many ACMOC members, also very happy to entertain any members visiting the best country in the world (downunder of course) Neil

    If you will be on I-90 or I-80, you will surely go through the Chicago area. The CPHQ is located conveniently between both routes (and there is a casino nearby). It is located near the Indiana/Michigan border. Additionally, until the CPHQ home is finished, my mailing address (meaning my current home) is still in Chicago and I'd be happy to give a tour if so inclined.

    If you come 90, I can show you the last restored pieces from the Al Smith Collection. They are about 50 miles from Catiron's. If come by the first weeknd in June we will be building some roads with the old machines, not all Al's.

    If you go 80, I would stop in Peoria at the club's office and see what is going on with the new museum that is being built in East Peoria. I am looking forward to seeing the exhibits as I helped locate one.

    Let me know.
    Thanks
    Terry

    Default 90e

    Wombat,
    If you take Interstate 90E it would take you by Neil in the Rochester, NY area and me in the Albany, NY area. From here it's 3 hours to Boston on I-90E.

    When going through Sacramento in California there is a great ag museum just a few miles north of Sac on Interstate 5. Don't remember the name of it but it is on the first exit after you cross the Sacremento River. It has a lot if very early crawlers, most all fully restored.

    No longer have my D7-3T. Plan to buy a D8-2U & D8-13A in future.

    Also, I simply LOVE Kitty Cats. Had 19 at one time. Not quite as many now.

    Dan, if they come this way I'd be glad to host a BBQ. Neil would drive in from Rochester with the guests from down under, and you can make the short drive over from Hancock, MA. Hey, if we get enough folks here maybe we can get some serious work done on my 22. :-) Ray
