That's a lot of miles to travel. Do you make the 600 in one day? I guess if it is mostly Interstate, it would be faster. I can barely do half that distance in a day, anymore... legs get too cramped up.
Yep, all 600 in one day, but it is requiring more stops to walk off cramping in my legs these days. I can go 2hrs at the most before I need to walk a bit. I usually make the trip in 10 1/2hrs or so, but figure about 12hrs this year. All but 25 miles is Interstate.
Dang feed company put feed I ordered for yesterday delivery in wrong bin ON TOP of a totally different feed! The girl that took the order wrote which bins to put it in correct, but the mill wrote it down wrong on the ticket. My feed rep is a great guy & offered to come help me get it out, but I declined his help. I can do it by myself better...less distractions. Feed flows from the top of the bin, so I'll unload it till I get all out. I'll have to climb bin with a pole to work the wrong feed down to center as I get close to all wrong feed out. Seems every time I'm gone, something wrong greets me home!:wallbanging:

Thats a bummer on the feed mix-up. I can't remember what it was supposed to cure but, I dumped a whole bag of some kind of bug dope, instead of mineral supplement, into a load of hog feed one time. It didn't hurt the hogs any, but usually one bag lasted for several loads of feed. It was a lot of wasted $$$.

Sorry I haven't been here much lately. Been very busy farming, emptying manure pit, plus dairy meetings. 2 meetings down, one more to go. Just got back an hour ago from Atlanta. Long drive, but not as long as KC, MO which comes up a week from Sunday. It's over 600 miles one way. I'm tired as heck, so gonna go find my recliner & then an early bed time.
Me too, I've been helping three friends with two brains. I went to Missouri today for a Ford LGT165, and I'm going back again next week, for a restored 1966 round fender with brass tag snow blade, 36" deck, weight box, and #10 cart. I'm trying to work on three tractors at once, and help my son on his job. I need to go back to work!!!
