OMG, That's a Riot!!! :bigrofl:
Then you'll let her look thru the Sears & Roebuck book to see what you'd have bought her if you hadn't spent all that money on gas getting to Daniels...

I gotta check how that works out, we will be 35 yrs on Veterans Day, I'm not the brightest bulb in the box but I knew I could never forget an anniversary if the Navy gave me the day off, now if I can save on the card too !! Hmmmm...

I fired up my tractor for the first time in probably a month and a half today, looking forward to turning some dirt next weekend.

Rain chances are on the rise I'm afraid. One says chance of storms, another says 40%, and another says 60%. I'll wait & see how things look the next few days. I sure hope it can happen Saturday! If it doesn't get rained out before that & any of you guys get here Friday, come on out Friday afternoon & we'll plow that evening what we can just in case. I know some have hotel reservations that aren't refundable.

Don't fret too much yet, Daniel. Those showers can go around you!

Your to far out to be worried about the weather Daniel. I use to do that with rides I was leading and I finally decided not to start worrying until around Thursday evening. The forecast is always subject to change.

I have been checking several sites and will wait till later in the week to make my go or no go decision. I have my fingers crossed and just hope for some suitable weather forecasts. Just keep us posted Daniel on how well your ground will plow with the coming forecasts. Please let us have some favorable weather for the Plow Day .

Just watched local weather. Cloudy Friday, and just a 30% chance of scattered showers for Saturday with 63F for a high temp. Not bad at the moment.

ive been watching also, seems to change every couple of hours. I'll have to leave early Friday morning so i have enough time to get there. I think it will work out ok, even with a small shower, unless you have been getting alot of rain before hand. We went most of the summer without and now that i want to do a little plowing here we get a daily recharge. Just enough that you cant really do a good job.

Most of this ground is sloped, so even a heavy shower before & maybe even during likely won't stop us. No real rain for several days here. Had a light shower this morning, but you'd never know now.

Took my diesel JB & Fred brought his 430 to lay off some starter furrows & test our plows. Bad news on my JB is that their hydro's just can't take the power of this Kubota diesel. The hydro overheats in just a half hour, then loses pulling power & hydraulics. And that is with a large oil cooler in front of the radiator. No biggie for plow day, as I'll be busy with other things & socializing most of the day anyway. I can run a couple laps, then allow her to cool, then go again later. I will be putting a Sundstrand inline 15 and a 2 speed Peerless rear end under it this winter, and it can handle the diesel. Fred had issues too. He lost his left front wheel due to the retainer clip coming off. He's gonna fix it tomorrow as light was almost gone tonight.

Here's some pics of the field to wet your whistles. We had no issues at all with the grasses left or the trash from bush hogging it, so it looks like good plow conditions. Soil does pull hard, but not that hard.
