You definitely have to try the ice cream, my son and I talked about it for a good part of the eight hour trip home, GOOD stuff.

Make sure you hit all the buildings, Especially Susong and Power Tech.

There's lots of early iron everywhere so bring a camera!!

If you walk around with your neck twisting around and your mouth wide open everyone will know you are a newbe. I would love to be there this weekend but I definitely will be there in the fall.

Be sure to try maple next time (my favorite). The New Holland engine powering the equipment gives it that great taste.
