I don't know about up in Canada, but in the U.S., it takes about three weeks if you haven't ever had and if you have one that's expired, you can walk it through in a day or two.

George Beckett and many others have done a lot of background work to make this event possible . At least four

years of searches and gathering of artifacts etc . Casey - you should try to make this . More info constantly being

found and the people , they are fantastic .

No Priors, it just expired, last time I needed a Passport I was 24yr old, that was about 30yrs ago.

George Becket, http://www.myelec-traks.com/ ,
has asked me to bring my EGT200 to the event as an original example for display.
But one of the reasons I want to go is this is the best single source of tractors, parts, attachments for the GE tractors. I can buy small parts and get them shipped fairly cheaply but the larger items buying them at the show to bring back is the way to do it.
There are a few things I'm looking for, I want to go down with an empty truck so I can bring back whatever I buy.

Would be nice to meet you in person Sparky, Casey and whoever else attends the show.

I think the biggest thing about this show is the Reunion of the GE employees and leaders that designed and built these tractors.
For those people this event will be really something.
