Bus in barn. Using Freightlinner Toterhome (Sons) and enjoying Steam engines, sawmills,tractors and friends. Andy's 1905 Huber steam engine. Also there a  Hielman  Steam engine and a Rumley oil pull.  Back to bus building Monday. Normally take bus to this event but didn't have finished this year. Life is good!   Bob

Hey Bob,
Same up here. Rollag Steam School next weekend. We're heading up on Tuesday 6/11 and will be staying through the following Monday. Lots of projects. Biggest one for us is we need to replace a couple of 2" nipples on the 28 Minneapolis.

Keep on steamin' !!

Darren has his shoolie here and I think there is another bus somewhere on grounds. Haven't left sawmill area myself. Ran some good high btu underground low sulfur coal today. Walnut Cherry Oak logs today.  This is normally one of our primary outing in our bus each year. Andy (our son) is sharing his toter home with us this time.   Bob

Met two MCI owners one with a 8 with tandem in rear. Also were 3 schoolies there. Advised all of our web site. Way to big of show to get around there might have been more on grounds that I missed. The 2 MCI owners were people I have known for 30 plus years and didn't know they had buses.   Back to bus building.  The END.
