Daniel, for those coming early, You got room for tents or such?

porta-potty?

 

The plow day will likely be out at my Mom & Dad's house, and Mom would likely be nervous with people she doesn't know camping near the house, so I'm not sure if this would work.  Mom is 88, and gets worried easily.  But I have an area next to my house that people could set a tent up in if it would help.  Plow day will be just down the road from my house.   I will have a porta -potti for sure.

So field party is at Daniel's place!!!

 

 

...E-town...

wow, I'm shocked. I grew up about an hour west of "E-town" and that is what everyone called it. Now I'm 2 hours east and I have to use the correct name, Elizabethtown.

Daniel.......get that 2 bottom put back together............I just want a chance to pull it with my 430.    I am probably going to put in for a vacation day for Friday so I can be there around noon or so to help you set up anything that needs to be set up.  Looking forward to turning some dirt!  And meeting some of these "names" that I have gotten to know on here.

Worked on it a few minutes tonight, but just too darned worn down to quite finish it, plus needed to help Teresa shuck more corn.  Just need to drill & bolt up one more hole & she'll be ready for turning terra firma.  We'll sure hook it up to that 430!  :thumbs:

Bobby, I was stationed there and that's how I knew what to call it. Grew up about 3 hours north.

I'm the same way! As long as it's clean and close. Heck, I could bring a cot and find a spot for it!

Good to know! I'm a shorts and cutoff shirts kind of guy for summer. Sounds like jeans and short sleeve shirts, maybe a jacket in the morning. Nice to know what's the normal around there!
