New beast in the shop this week😎. This is a Kearney & Trecker model K 2 plane with the vertical head 👌. Ways are in amazing condition so far. Story is that this machine was rebuilt and set after that. Story looks to be true. Still has paint on the table dials so it could not have been used much unless the machinist was guessing.
Check this machine out in more detail and see the loading and unloading on my youtube channel, it was exciting 😥
The idling roosting cranes silent chatter turns to a cacophonous symphony.
Reverberating across the vast Nebraska plains.
The sound...indescribable. Chills seep deeply into your soul.
Dawn dwindles as the sun is heaved into the sky by the mighty sounds.
A literal riverdance ensues.
Hundreds of thousands simultaneously take flight
Heading for the fields of gold.
Fattening up for the journey north.
An ancient story that perseveres.
For millions of years, this little place on the Platte River has witnessed one of the truly great migrations on earth.
Just as it's impossible to capture or write about the magic of the Redwoods...the same is true for the Sandhill Cranes.
No words or image will every do it justice.
Just go and you'll see.
The wisdom accrued will change your life. ...
