  1. A Video Of The B-29's At China Lake

    Sure was awesome to see Doc and Fifi together at Oshkosh a couple weeks ago.
  2. EAA Fly-Over

    Randy, thanks for piping in on the topic- I better get back to work but I'll give you one more photo real quick.
  3. EAA Fly-Over

    It's going to take some considerable time to do photo processing, but I made two trips to OSH this past week and will try to get back here with a post later. Especially since I know there are several people on this forum who are big fans of the B-29 and having Doc and Fifi together sure was a dream come true. Here's a teaser, though- they called this the year of the bomber, and there was lots of heavy metal in the air. Bad to the Bone, baby!
  4. For the airplane guys......

    I'd love to be down there, sure looks like a great show- and the weather here sucks so bad that I really could have gotten away from the farm for a day or three without feeling too guilty about it.
  5. Talking of minots b 52s

    There have been many BUFFs live through worse problems than this, I saw it discussed on another forum yesterday which is mostly made up of USAF dudes. It of course brings to mind the old story of the F-16 pilot in the landing pattern, though: Tower: Viper 69, turn to heading 090 and hold at five miles, we have a B-52 who lost an engine and has declared an emergency. F-16: Ah, the dreaded seven-engine approach.
  6. What do you think about combine restoration?

    It's a little bit of a tangent to your conversation, but we put a pile of hours on several different 2300 series combines. Electrical problems are nearly nonexistent with them. The wiring harnesses and other components are of vastly superior quality to what is in say a 1460. We fight a few more electrical gremlins in a flagship combine now, but there isn't a single time on it or a 23 that we have needed a dealer tech to get the problem diagnosed and cured.
  7. 706 lp how many made?

    There's been one here since it was almost new, not sure how many hours on it as it's not the original tachometer any more but it's got a bunch, well over 10,000. It's been a really good tractor, just has the standard quibbles of any 06-86 series tractors. Propane engines can be a little troublesome on valves, but they sure are clean-running units.
  8. Jane Fonda Joins Protesters

    On the contrary, I've seen (and felt) a Bone on the deck at max subsonic speed in burner. I'd stand there and watch that all day long.

    Glad it was a little warmer at Oshkosh!
  10. Best beans I ever grew

    It was a great season for soybeans here, some truly fantastic yields. Corn rather disappointing in comparison.
  11. R. A. 'Bob' Hoover - RIP

    Just this summer at Oshkosh I got to stand in a huge crowd and listen to him talk. I only wish I'd had the chance to see him fly.
  12. New 2144 owner questions

    Mud Hog built them.
  13. New 2144 owner questions

    Changing out to a Mud Hog is not something you need a dealer shop to do. We bought one mid-season during a muddy harvest for a 2366, got home with it at dark and had the machine in the field next afternoon. At the time we were trading combines every season, so we transferred that RWA to 2 or 3 other combines and got to where we could do it in probably less than 4 hours as I recall.
  14. Corn prices?

    Mother Nature, of course, holds a bigger role in what actual breakeven prices are for some of us who live where wild yield swings instead of consistency are typical. Kind of a joke to discuss the difference between $4 and $4.50 when you don't know whether your yield will be 80 or 180..... All that said, after the awful crop we had in this immediate locale last year I'm feeling quite fortunate to have a whopper crop and lots of it sold at good prices, we will get some healing accomplished. Cut 65 bpa beans on a farm last week that made 74 bpa corn in 2015, talk about a difference in my mood sitting in the combine seat.
  15. Thougts on DAPL (Dakota access pipeline )

    DAPL goes through 4 farms we operate, in fact about 400 feet from where I am sitting typing this on the computer. The big stink out at the Indian site is a load of BS, they were given every possible opportunity to have input and they obstructed or ignored all of the attempts by the Corps of Engineers and the pipeline organization to contact them until it became clear that they stood to not cash in the big bucks. I'm sure the mainstream media also didn't go out of their way to mention that DAPL parallels an existing pipeline by just a few feet going through that area, either.....
