  2. Yeah, my wife kept telling me she was holding up imaginary fingers while we were planting this past week. But she was still there. It can be dangerous and we usually have our kids with us. We keep our eyes on swivels. Still amazing to be outdoors though rather than behind my desk.

  3. If Chris’s wife can drive a grain cart then she is awesome. If Chris’s wife can tolerate him then she must be really awesome. ”Honey, let’s go to Montour Falls for a ‘vacation’ (State Fire Academy). On the way we can stop at Empire Farm Days.”

  4. The difference is Trump is reluctant to call out the National Guard with the election date so close. After the election, providing the good guys win, there will be no hesitation to call out appropriate law enforcement to enforce the laws. The only repercussion may be Nancy Pusslosi attempting another impeachment scheme. Once the rioters and disrupters realize there will be consequences for their actions, and the tie to George Soros affiliated groups is uncovered and assets seized, this behavior will very likely change. The media is complicit as well with their one sided coverage

  5. I taught mine how to drive silage truck this year (allison but hey) and at 11pm i asked her if there was a plate for me or something when we finished up this field? Chopper guy said you seen her snarl from the cab!? Nothing is more cool than your wife being there in the trenches doing whatever it is you do for a livelihood.

  6. Found this guy (winter killed) fencing above medicine creek. Seeing more and more. They came down from Rosebud Rez and are thriving. Was told not that hard to get a landowners permit but haven't checked into it. If the keep populating, will definitely look into it. The big bulls I am seeing are still too skittish to get a good pic with cell phone camera. Genetics are improving with the Muleys, wish I had a better camera

  8. On the stand tonight I saw 4 different buck . This one I was going to shoot if it got close enough. He had an arrow in him high and center. Talked to a neighboring club and know where it wandered in from. He got under 70 yards and I was preparing to get ready but he turned away into the brush. He did move around okay and might be fine next year or maybe not.

  9. My wife and I spent our first 3 winters together in a bunk house on my folks place. Nasty Nebraska winter blizzards. Nothing to heat with but an old US Army #1 wood stove. Bless her heart, she made it through and stayed with me (she is an awesome woman!). I used a Stihl 026, MS290, and MS390 and cut up dead posts like it was my business! I don't care what you say about other brands, the Stihl saws are amazing. As far as value of old Stihl saws, they run forever, sharpen the kerfs and take the rakers down every other time. That saw probably saved my marriage! ?

  11. She does shut the hand held radio off sometimes. But the favorite thing to do to her is ask what she made for supper after working with me in the field all day. That one pushes her over there edge every time.

  13. A local guy was injured very badly in a combine accident the other day. Figured I'd take a second to realize how lucky we are. Dad and I finished my corn tonight and I thought it was a great time for pics with the setting sun, my farm place is just over the combine.

  14. Picture this one: My late uncle Robert once made a tractor that ran an MGB dual carb engine using a narrow front, Avery A drive train. Actually looked semi-stock until you noticed the overhead valves and twin side draft carbs. It was in the 60's in Coastal South Carolina where MG's were rarer than space shuttles. He was a true believer in use what you have on hand!

  17. Oh she is a pretty talented girl. Runs chopper, drives truck, and can run just about anything. She has been driving tractor since she could reach the pedals, and quite possibly before as she still has problem reaching pedals today? S The "vacation" statement is not far off. Most years its going to red power Roundup or Half century of progress and she always takes her vacation in the fall to run grain cart for me. Yup she is a keeper

  21. I wear ear plugs 100 percent of the time at the farm. Too much loud equipment when I was younger. I think the ac 6080 open station with the NH 489 mower was the start of hearing loss for me.

  23. I have always tried to wear “ears” when shooting and running open station equipment. I’ve got a set of Peltor brand noise cancelling muffs for shooting. For mowing and tractor work I wear 3M worktunes. When I am blacksmithing I normally wear foam plugs or work tunes. Depends on what anvil I use how much ring it makes actually.

  24. I grab the ear plugs or muffs before most will. Simple job with an impact wrench, hammer on steel, grinder, etc.... Years on an open station then years in field artillery. My hearing is going and it has become painful to hear loud noises. I find myself saying "say again" too often now. To the youngsters out there, protect what you got.

  25. First time I got in the cab of the D-8N I couldn’t help but notice the warning sign that hearing protection must be worn. Unfortunately by that time it was already to late as tinnitus had started years before. I have some hearing loss but the constant ringing/singing/screeching in my ears is beyond annoying. I now wear worktunes all the time I’m around any noise makers.

  28. I prefer the noise canceling type headphones. oddly enough they actually act like hearing aids when there is no noise to activate them . I can hear better with these on then I can without them.

  31. Once you're wearing hearing aids you can't wear plugs anymore, unless you take the aids out, so you're stuck with muffs. In my job we have light weight noise cancelling headsets because the jets are quite quiet, more so in the cabin where it wayy quieter than a commercial airliner. You can have a normal quiet conversation. The problem I have is that the headset and hearing aids are not compatible. I take the outside aid off depending on which seat I'm occupying and leave the inside in so that I can hear whoever comes into the cockpit. In my Cessna I use full muff noise cancelling set

  32. If a person doesn't like the feel of ear plugs, I know you will not like the feel of hearing aids when you can no longer hear "normal" conversations. Hearing protection is something I have not taken lightly for many years. I just wish more younger ones would do it. I got hearing aids several years ago when my grandson came up behind me and tried to tell me something. When I didn't respond, he told grandma I was ignoring him and hurt his feelings. I just has ear surgery a few weeks ago because of on issue I have been ignoring too long. Hearing in my right ear was nonexistent. Doctor said

  33. I don't want to hijack this important thread but I feel the same way about the seasonal flu - I've had it and would have paid $1000 to not have it. I've been getting the flu shot ever since it's been available and haven't gotten the flu since. My fear is that having the seasonal flu along with COVID-19 would be a death sentence. The anti vaccine sentiment that I've seen even on this board worries me. Even our potential next VP has expressed an anti position albeit mostly political. The seasonal flu shot is free! Any COVID shot that makes it all the way through trials will likely be f

  34. From what you have stated this is one nasty $hit. Have had simple seasonal flu that made me pray to God to just take me. This crap is definitely nothing to dismiss as simply political. Please accept my good thoughts and prayers for your loved ones.

  35. The interaction between a combine driver and a grain cart driver will test anyone’s patience. The fact that your wife runs your grain cart speaks volumes about how thankful you should be for having her in your life!

  36. Yes a 41 year old was killed while working on his grain cart a couple days ago. A week before that a ND DOT employee was killed mowing roadsides and struck by a train mowing a crossing. Both these guys had young families. A farmer in that area a couple weeks before that had a severe heart attack battling a fire on his fladship combine. So we don’t know how lucky we are to wake up and enjoy life everyday.

  38. You are so right. We need to look at the days that we have got done without being hurt serious and give thanks. And for the days ahead of us watch what we do and do it in a safe way. Be careful and take time to watch what your doing.

  39. Remember my dad blamed me for losing a Bearing scraper he had borrowed and was going to return to the owner. Well , I didn’t know what he was talking about. It was an intense time in my youth . Never forgot it, you know! Turns out Dad was in early stages of Parkinson’s , I didn’t know. Glad now I dropped it. Wasn’t worth it, the next thing , it a day or so later he found it on the shelve ,where he put it. He showed it to me and explained what it was used for. He sort of apologized. Something I always remember , Don’t go pointing fingers unless it’s at you!
