  1. This was my summer project I drove the car to Tuktoyaktuk NWT in late June early July. Previous years I have driven it to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans so felt I should complete the set. The last 500 miles is on gravel so I left my rear mags with bigger tires at home. I mounted 6 tires on 6 wheels with matching setbacks so any wheel would fit any position. I usually don't have a hood but for long trips I put this on and remove it at shows. There is one jump of 230 miles with no services so I carried 3 jerry cans but only ever used one. I like the look of cycle fenders but they are a pain to keep on even on pavement. At one point I was down to 1 left but was able to return with the two rear ones on. Beautiful rolling country without many people which spins my wheels. If you google Tuktoyaktuk and Rosetown Sk Canada and Houston Texas you will find that living in Rosetown I am closer to Houston than Tuktoyaktuk. I put almost 6000 miles on the car.

  4. I was one for twenty years. There was a lot of nights I went home, cold, wet, hungry, muddy, filthy or PO'd.. The uniform and I both washed. But for the most part, we were always appreciated in our county. Yes, we took the doughnut jokes. We could not do it alone. We worked with the public to get things done. I stopped for coffee, in the morning, with the farmers in a small town. After 45 minutes I found a number of amazing things, including who was stealing gas from a neighbors tank. And they were right. Cops in a coffee shop is a good thing. If people see you personally, they will tell you what they seen. But the same person will not call the office and report it. It's law enforcement working with the people for a common good.

  6. We are short on hay and this failed crop field had a nice stand of signal grass. It came up after the rains we started getting in late July. But it's short and I need to work the ground so it's got to be cut now. My hay bind is set up to cut high so the old nh 451 is up to the job but... the 504lpg won't start and the 826 PTO is slipping so the 886 gets the honors. I've never seen a 3 pt sickle mower on an 86 series, let alone a 7 ft. Actually the tires and mower are not adjusted right. We're only getting 6 ft of cut! A little overkill? Thx-Ace

  12. Seen this sitting along the road. I think it showed 1500 hours. No price listed. Sure would be handy or at least I think it would be. Skid steer quick attach and flat faced hydraulics out the front. Any one run one of these?

  15. My Willmar Wrangler loader is a old POS compared to that one but man is it handy. It has a decently tight turning radius (just have to watch you rear end swinging around). The rear tires follow the tracks of the fronts so it doesn't tear up ground when you turn. The oscillation takes some getting used to. When a tire comes off the ground you swear you are going over but it has been very stable and I am sure have not come close to tipping it over. Lifting capacity is somewhere around 2700# IIRC so takes a pretty big skid steer to match that. The extended reach is an advantage over fork lifts

  16. If you hot water power wash it , then use scotch bright and scuff the entire surface and you can use a hot rod clear coat . You can mix it for what ever finish you want, flat , semi gloss, gloss . If you want to rerust the steel you can mix hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar 50/50 and spray it on the metal where it’s back down to the steel and it will rust it in a few seconds . We did my Pro Farm pulling tractor and it turned out great so I also did my shop truck Browny too . Danny

  20. And getting back to the subject of people eating crickets, here's what an expert in ruminant (and non-ruminant) nutrition has to say about the digestibility of crickets. Read the whole thing, but here's the money quote (literally): So when you hear that insects contain more nutrition than an equivalent weight of beef, that’s discounting the fact that you can’t actually access most of that nutrition. The exoskeleton is made of a sugar, N-acetyl-D-glucosamine which is basically glucose with an amine group and an acetyl group tagged on. But it’s in a form you simply can’t digest, like the glucose in cellulose. Everything in beef is digestible. A large proportion of an insect is not. If you put both in a calorimeter to measure caloric content, the insects would win – but it’s not about how many calories a food contains. It’s about how many are actually accessible. https://underdogsbiteupwards.wordpress.com/2022/08/17/chitin/

  24. A little update on this. I called my buddy with the tractor the next day to give him some ideas on what might be good for him to pull off and sell. He tells me he tried cutting off a few bolts and all the rubber shreds on the ground caught fire again. He followed with “this thing is going to the scrap yard tomorrow!” I was off work the next day and my house was closer than the scrap yard so we struck a deal. Maybe this was dumb of me but I actually wanted a couple things off the tractor and figured I could scrap what myself or others might not want. I pulled the junk tin off and got 3/4 tires off the rims so far. Covered the engine so it wouldn’t take on any water. On my third can of penetrating oil soaking things to help this come apart (in theory).

  41. That is what it is here also. Proximity to your farm would possibly drive it up some. Add a dryer that you can use and it would be a little more yet. I know a gentleman who does that here. Has a setup at home and one rented. It almost doubles his daily capacity because he can fill both drying bins vs just one if grain is wet. The second setup is sitting on the rented farm so hauling to the rented bins is a nonissue.

  42. Yes a 315 Dodge version of the hemi. Also yes a 1928 Model A. During WW2 western Canadian farmers got extra gas ration cards if they had a truck instead of a car so lots of cars got converted. The fellow that did this one did a fairly nice job of it lining up the box line with the body reveal line. He also did a lot of welding so it would have been a lot of work to take it back to a 5 window coupe.

  45. Bins that we have rented before have been in the $0.10-$0.15 per bushel. Storage is different than it used to be. Bins used to be to try and capture higher prices after the harvest lows. That really isn’t the case anymore. Most farms are running such high capacity combines, and often several of them, that there is just no way to be sitting in line, or not running because the elevator is closed. You have to be able to unload on your schedule. We use bins so we can keep combines moving, that is it. You can deliver to the elevators here and price it whenever you want. If we could haul it all at harvest we would. To put grain in bags here you are talking about $0.25 per bushel at least, maybe a little more. So if you have a good setup and the alternative is putting it in bags or not running at all I guess I might be willing to pay up to $0.25, especially if you are going to stand the repair bills on your bins.
