Does everyone have to go crooked like that? Or will somewhat straight be okay?

:bigrofl:

And it looks like Fred was just trying to be more efficient to me. Plow with the axle, too.

Crooked!!!! They look pretty straight to me! No matter, as straight to begin with always ends up crooked, or vice/versa. :D
And Fred will do anything to get attention! :smilewink:

Looks like Fred was trying to run the wheels off it to me! Couldn't handle what the JB was doing?

He was trying to catch up! :rolling: Truth be told, if his wheel hadn't departed, he might have caught me....my hydro was so hot it would barely pull by this time.

It's likely still in the rim. He has cast weights mounted that fill the entire rim, likely trapping the clip.

Between now and Saturday that forecast will change at least a dozen time's and then on Saturday it may not even hold true. I hope your Plow day is a big success Daniel.

I'm pretty worried now! Fred left his 3 legged Deere in the field intending to put the wheel back on tomorrow. Went outside a minute ago & heard the coyotes going nuts up that way. I think they're trying to take down his crippled Deere! :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl:

A deere with a broken leg is no match for the coyotes! Maybe you can run out there and cover it in red to fool them! :oh_shucks:

It would at least scare them off. Still have that Pic Daniel? Maybe print it out and tape it on the hood, let them know what that Deere could turn into if angered. :bigrofl:

you know i was looking at the google earth map of hodgenville, and i didnt see many places to eat. Surely you got some kind of a mom & pop dinner or a McDonalds there. Did see a pizza hut, but thats not going to work for breakfast and coffee much.

Jeff, when I did a search I did find a McDonalds listed at 932 S Lincoln Blvd. I know Daniel will have more info on the local eateries. Hoping for good weather and I'll see you there.

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.


Were you guys using coulters or not?

Yes, McDonalds & Hardees right at the intersection you will come through at the end of Lincoln Parkway at Hodgenville. This is about 10 miles before you get to our farm. Get off I65, then onto Lincoln Parkway (Ky61), come to this intersection. McDonalds to the left, Hardees to the right. Straight through light to my place.
