Old Threshers 2010

The day in photos.

Lots of walking. It was sunny and not too hot- but DUSTY!

Oak Ridge School museum
The oldest standing public school in Iowa


And horsepower of a different sort

Steam tractors big and little

Equipment to bring in the harvest: old

and new.
A 2010 John Deere combine.
Price tag: $307,520!!!

Lunch by a life-sized rubber alligator.

And later afternoon- a tradition.
Probably the best caramel apples in the world.
Only from under the grandstand.
They've had the same recipe since I was a child.

All worn out on the way home.

Aren't they cute?


  1. those car photos are priceless! I can't wait until our MN vacation coincides with the local county fair and tractor pull, my kids would get such a kick out of it!

  2. What a fun day! I love places like that. The Vernon County Fair is coming up in a couple weeks & I am already excited!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
