I was on my way out to my folks’ place recently when I got held up in front of the John Deere factory in East Moline. A long line of brand new combines were on their way out of the factory.
I’ve taken the factory tour twice, once in grade school and the other about three years ago. As I’ve previously mentioned, the plant tour is very cool, even if you’re not into farm implements.
I got out of the car to see how long the train was, and couldn’t see the end, so I got out of there. But it was still kind of neat to see all those new machines on their way to points unknown.
