Taking a working vacation

I had an opportunity present itself a couple weeks ago that I think those on this forum could appreciate. I got a call from a contact in the heavy equipment industry. He asked if I would be interested in coming to Austria to assist them in providing end user input into a machine. I dont know what machine that is, I will find out when I get there. I had to sign confidentiality agreements so I wont be able to talk about whatever it is specifically. I will give the name of the OEM after I clear it them (it's not CASE). They are flying me and my wife out in the early morning and we will be there for a week. Pretty cool opportunity.
See us at

Proudly running CASE and Takeuchi equipment.

Sounds like a wonderful opportunity. You are heading to one of the most beautiful places on earth. I wish someone would ask my opinion once in a while!

Have fun and enjoy this opportunity.. Might lead to something different in your future.. Never know! Make sure you snap some pics of those Alps.

Very cool. Last fall I was contacted by a manufacturer and flown out to Kansas to do testing on some machines that have still not been released yet. It was a great experience and opportunity. You will be glad you didn't pass it up! I wish I went to Austria though!!!

Anyone can run equipment, very few can operate.

Check out what I do.

Sounds pretty sweet. Make sure you show them how to farm Iderhoo potatoes.

Go hard, go fast, or go home
