So Obama didn't get the I-64 bridge fixed so he closed it eh? So what is the shortest route to expo when coming in from I-64 west... Okay I can go way the heck up north on 62/265 and intersect I65 and drive south. I don't want to wander around the east side hood area.

when coming in from 64 just take 265 to i65 go south about 10 miles...very easy 65 will take you right to fair grounds

And we are going to visit my brother in Vincennes after the show. He is a farmer and we like to putter around with the big stuff. I came off that farm and my oldest son really like to visit.....my brother has sons.

stay in the righthand lane as far as you can on 65 south then ease your way over when you get closer to bridge:weightlifter:

I grew up with the Boyds. We farmed at a really young age. Back then the big boys were the Robinson Bros from Knox Co. We ran bulldozers you name it. I just cant get over the price of equipment now. When I was farming it was the 1206, 1466 etc. been awhile back. They farm all around me now and between them they probably got 300 semis farm 15000 acres or more and have more dozers and trackholes than you can count. Some really big farmers in Knox Co. also. If your by my way stop by. Just live 1/2 mile south of Bypass 50 on 57 South. Cant miss it yard is all tore up from highway work.

Yeah Tom had a IH and Steve had 3 JD's Tom quit, his son and him just got to big in farming, trucking and grain elevators. Steve just sold 2 of his. Lucas and him are pretty good friends. He is big in dirt work, cranes, farming and runs over a 100 flatbed semis. He told me the other day they are working in North Dakota laying gas lines!!!
When we were young teens we work around the clock farming and trucking. Just learned to do everything on the farm with them.

they say they will have it fixed and opened by March, they have been wanting to build a bridge on the east side of louisville for thirty years to complete a loop. there a lot of politics in play on this bridge being closed.

That would have been Steve. When we were younger, where you would see one of us you would see the other. We rode motorcycles to school in the seventh grade, hide them in a ditch then off to the farm after school. Man thought that was something a 60CC Bridgestone!!!!!
Anyway the traffic looked the worst getting back on 64 in Louisville than going to the fairground. Paper said 13 million to fix it. I think about it falling and the one at Evansville every time I cross them. Thinking a big quake will hit when I am on them!!!!!!! Dont know when it was built but the ones in Evansville I believe were in the late 50's or 60's.

they kind of left out the fact that the cracks date back to 1962 when they built it, they have been there all this time.
