Gorgeous land . Never knew you could have your own gas well !  If I had that land, I wouldn't leave either.

Thanks for sharing the trip, really cool scenery.
Each packing heat, are the coyotes that aggressive there?

I have a pair of Carhart bibs but don't wear them all that often.  Go more by wind chill than the temp.  If I am not going to be moving much like snow clearing or at an auction, yes.  I will have them on.  But for normal chores, like getting wood in, feeding the animals, etc. they are to bulky and takes to much energy to move around with them on.  Normally I have shorts and a ploy T-shirt, cotton long johns, flannel lined pants and sweat shirt.  Then a Carhart long coat with hood  and I am good to go.   This morning it was 15° with about 5 mph wind and was plenty warm

I'm with you there cheiffan. I have a set of the off brand walls bibs. They are great for stationary work. But too much movent and I'm sweating. I usually wear heavy jeans, old school thermals under neath, thermal top, T shirt, hoodie and jacket. Usually I shed the jacket during active work.

Most of the farms around me have gas wells.My 5 acres was split off a farm but my brother's 8 acres got the free 200,000 MCF (I think that is the measurement) and that is enough to run his large house and shop all year.If he does go over he only has to pay well head price which is way cheaper due to not having transportation charges added..

My ex wife's grandmother had a well on her property. She got free gas maintained by the gas company for as long as she or any family owned the property.

Her house was like an oven. She had those single room wall mount heaters in every room and they were all on. I swear it was a 100 in there constantly.

I was confused at first too as why a water well would shut down your furnace, now I understand :thumbs:

It does seem like Charlene wore an awful lot of rouge to service a well. :D

 

Not that trip ! It was way too cold ! Those red cheeks are from the wind-chill.

Yes, when Grandma lived with us everybody ran around barefoot and in shorts all winter in the house !

Usually I buy Walls myself, they often have zip-up legs that Carharts don't always and are way less. The company bought the black Carhart that my wife has on and I bought those Nitelites this fall on sale, they are too warm for actual working, as I said I had to strip down some on trip back but I'm  betting they are great for stationary work.

Because so many have been spotted this year and neighbor actually losing about 4-500 pond bull calf to them yes we were packing. The dogs needed a good run but I hoped that the coyotes would stay away from the dogs smell and two if they didn't the dogs would give us better warning. The powder actuated tools were for last resort ...
