Appreciate it Chuck! I was gonna call, but then saw your PM, then Bob from Vevay dropped me an email too. I can make the 20th, as it's a normal day off UNLESS something comes up. We may be planting corn by then, but I'm going plowing anyway!

tried to replace the wheel bearings last night and the guy at napa had gave me the bearings. I am part to blame cause i just glanced at them as i paid and went on my way. So I have to go back today and get the right ones.

I checked out the 3pt plow dad got from grandpa's and it a a old sears 3pt plow that is in really good shape. Also talked with dad and he is going to be modifying his trailer so we can load 1 tractor in from the side on the front and then pull another on from the back. Now that the plow day has been delayed we will have more time to get it all done.

Exactly! I have some V61 front tires coming, so I'll have time to paint my rims & have the new tires mounted. But this will likely be the last rain date, as it's gonna be planting time!

A little over a week to go, the 10 day forcast is looking pretty good, 71 and cloudy. Hopefully not to much rain between now and then.

TWC shows 40% chance of showers on Friday the 29th, 30% Saturday. Not bad chances, plus light showers won't stop anything. 70's is perfect!

Sorry to hear Fred is bailing, I was looking forward to meeting him.

Also looking forward to more weight for plowing. Didn't have any trouble before, but more weight can't hurt in this case.

I'll be sure to tell Fred he's letting more than just me down....more pressure might sway him! LOL
