  1. I had two cousins from Iowa at the house last week. Couldn’t get an access ticket for Glacier Park so I took them to the bison range. Good trip and the bison are big suckers when only a few feet from the truck!! There were 40-50 in a herd next to the road. Enjoy a little tour of Montana. And a bonus picture over looking Flathead Lake.

  2. If it wasn’t for the happenings in 1944 and their sacrifice we could be all waving at birds and eating sour kraut or worse. They are passing pretty quick, I lost my last hold on the war two years ago at 101, and the funny part was neither he nor my old man bragged about anything, it was “something we had to do “ we could still learn a lot from their experiences.

  3. LOL, the story is told of a company's sales staff being told that having a adult beverage at lunch was acceptable as long as they did not consume vodka. When asked why no vodka management said "customers can't smell vodka on your breath. We'd rather have the customer thing you are drunk instead of stupid". Rick

  4. Bought my 5 year old his first tractor. I came across this super c with rebuilt belly mower for 1425 and I bought it for 1200. Will sell the mower so ya can't beat that price. Runs great, new lights , fires up fast. Will pull it in the 3500lb farmstock class and when he is old enough he will pull it.

  8. It's sad. Had a couple WW2 vets who farmed near us. They gone. There are none left in the two towns I live between. Like anyone, you think they will be around forever. I sure regret not visiting with some of them. I did visit with our neighbor across the section about his service. That was back in the 80's. He served in the pacific. He had to check the caves for survivors after they used the flame throwers in them. He said quite often they were not burned. It just sucked the oxygen out of the cave. People in todays world would be appalled what it takes to win a war. Those guys did what they needed to do. And won.

  10. Yesterday my son was at his mom's house helping her clean out a closet and found quite a few old family pics. One was this pic of his Grandpa (ex's Dad). Years ago l asked him the story of how he got wounded. He just said he got hit with shrapnel in the arm and shoulder. He lay wounded on the battlefield over night till they got some armor support. he said the most scared he had ever been was when he saw a Sherman tank coming his direction. He thought it was going to run over him but he was too weak to move. Turned out it straddled him and the crew picked him up through a hatch in the bottom. My son scanned the pic and sent to me. He is wondering what kind of car his Grandpa is sitting on and l told him l bet l know some guys that can tell us. All l can see is that it has a coon tail for a hood ornament...lol

  11. That is Rich Bergeson's load, and his family farm is AC and IH, his brother Bill is an IH guy. Their late father Burnell worked in an IH dealer or shop years ago, and they farm with AC/Agco and IH/CaseIH now. He has posted on some of the FB pages, the other truck I think is being driven by Luke Gehris by the posts I saw. Great guys, great friends of mine! Oh, and that is indeed a 220! lol!

  12. In the mid-70's, I would find a fair amount of misses in the 06/56 series tractors. Would pull the head and find a bad piston/cylinder. This was usually due to a bad nozzle, especially if the fuel screw was opened up a bit. One could still see the cross hatch in the cylinders at 10K hours. Would put one new cylinder in it, fix the nozzle and the way it went again. People then were proud of their tractors and most treated them right with oil changes/filters, etc. Some just drove them and then complained when they broke. Nozzles was probably 75% of the cylinder issues in the day. The fuel has to be atomized to make a clean burn and to get the power you want. Now, with the sulfur removed from the fuel, what the long term effect is is yet to be seen. There is no substitute for maintenance.

  22. We live 8 miles from the border and half my family is Canadian. What changed everything was not covid but 9/11. The years before 9/11 we used to go into Canada all the time just like going to any other town. Farm shows, hockey games, machinery trips, parks, relatives on and on. Heck half of our town was in the golf league in Milk River or so it seemed like. Senior trips and school trips were also common. Going into Canada, the customs officer would barely look up when asking the questions. Coming back was easier yet because it was local people working customs and most of the time they wouldn't even question you. Just shoot the breeze for a minute. We also had only 2 border patrol agents. After 9/11, everything changed. First of all a new joint custom building was built. The number of border patrol agents went up over 50 and sensors were installed on the border. It used to be sometimes we would not even go through the port going into Canada. We would get on the border road, make sure nobody was around and just veer off onto one of the roads on the Canadian side. Now if you stop your vehicle on the border road, get out to take a leak on the Canadian edge of the road, someone will be there in 5 minutes or less. No joke. Far as getting into Canada, still wasn't too bad but the Canadians did ask more questions. However, it is our side that are the pr!cks. The government brought in a lot more custom agents all hot shots thinking they are going make some big bust harassing the local people going through. 9/11 is what changed everything, Covid made it worse. I am normally pro law enforcement. I've had only one bad run in with a cop and it wasn't even that bad. Most are good around here. The local DOT are pretty good too, not the Nazis you read about in other places. However, these custom agents I sometimes wonder how someone hasn't gone off on them yet.

  23. Number twelve is the 4366. While I don't expect as many of you to own 4366's, I hope to get lots of pictures and stories on this "Old School Cool" IH four wheel drive. I always thought they were really neat tractor when they had the 23.1's with duals or 24.5's. The 18.4 equipped models looked under tired to me. And of course a large chrome pipe always looked good too. So let's see em y'all!

  24. Sick of the miserable 18ga wire and fiberglass rod fence mess, most of these are actually down 4’ except one corner where i hit ledge, and will be cut down to about that . Still deciding on mesh panels or just plain 14ga electric. I know some of you guys do miles of fence… and you can have it. About 88 degrees here today…. YUCK! that little Kubota is a sweet little machine, but if i had the big one here I probably could have driven them with it and been done.

  28. I don't usually chime in here as most of the time I'm on the construction board with TD9 issues. But today is D Day and we should never forget those who served and those that payed the ultimate price. My Dad was in WW 2, his brother in Italy, cousins flying bombers from England into Germany etc etc. Grandfather's cousin was 19, Canadian air force, and on a ship still in Canadian waters between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland when a German u boat torpedoed them. Google the SS Caribou. That's how close within Canada the Germans were in 1942. But today it was Juno, Sword, Omaha, Utah, Gold beaches in France. Brits, Yanks, Canucks side by side. Lest we forget.

  31. I think the access pass is due to COVID and too much traffic. If I understand it right, it is for Going to the Sun Highway not necessarily all of the Park. They want to limit the number of vehicles using the road. That’s the best part of the place in my opinion. The pass is in addition to the normal park pass and is only $2. They pre-sold 75% of the passes two months ago. Then the other 25% are sold two days prior to when you want to use them. I got on line at precisely 8 am two days in a row. At 8:01 am, 145 passes were gone each day and I wasn’t able to get one. So we said the heck with it. I know there are tour trucks you can ride on, maybe that’s what the park wants to get used more. But it’s a three hour drive up to the park and I don’t know every detail. Maybe next time.

  33. In our small town a mfg company was started by two German army veterans that emigrated here from Canada in the 60s. It is rugby mfg . They are a nationally distributed hoist and truck body mfg. I a small town 35 miles away was a polish doctor who was very knowledgeable in skin diseases and allergies plus being a general family doctor. His daughter wrote a small biography of his life. He was educated in Austria at one of the best medical schools. He was forced to be a doctor for Adolph Hitler in the early to middle part of the war. He then emigrated to the USA after war. Applying at hospitals in many towns along his journey to ND. Every hospital refused to hire him as he was a German speaking immigrant. Somehow he found the towns and settlements in the German areas of North Dakota and settled in a town that accepted him as a highly trained doctor. He stayed and lived in the town of Drake ND his entire career. He was a highly trained doctor just looking for a job. My dad used to talk about a cousin of his friends that emigrated after the war. He was conscripted by the German army in the Ukraine . He had a German army tattoo on his arm , but came over here and built a life for himself.

  39. It is one of the laws of physics, that anything round will fall on the floor and roll into the only crack in the concrete. The smaller the part and 'no longer available' it is more likely that this will happen. Pocket knives are also coated with some sort of invisible coating.

  42. Yep, You could have 1000 square feet of open floor space all around you, drop something and it goes under a tire, under the shop vac etc. If you have 1000 square feet of open floor space that translates in your shop to 1000 places your dropped item will be under and become invisible. Never, plainly visible in the 1000 square feet of open floor space. DISCLAIMER - I know no one has clean floor space in their shop. The above statement was for demonstrative purposes only. But the statement is still 100% accurate in every shop I've ever worked in. God help you if your working outside!!
