My Generation

The 2013 Farm Progress Show kicked off in Decatur amid new products, new technology and old friends. Check out a few scenes!

As I write this, a group of editors are gathered in our Farm Progress Show Editorial Camper Trailer, which is nearly as glamorous as it sounds. But it's air conditioned, so we will take that. And it's equipped with cookies from Bobbi Vogt, wife of Willie Vogt. They are frozen and they are delicious.

It's the end of the day but there's still work to be done. We're sorting photos, writing up new products, filing market copy. And let's be real: soaking up air conditioning. Because we're all hot, sweaty and tired. But exhilirated.

Talk of new equipment, a visit from the governor and visits with old friends. A last-minute appearance on This Week in AgriBusiness with Max and Orion. (Tune in this weekend for my two minutes of fame! I'll be the dirty, sweaty one.) And dozens and dozens of photos.

It's been a good day, with decent breezes. And so with that, check out these images from Day One of #FPS13.
