  3. Here are pictures of this years harvest. Last year I had the neighbors combine as the crop was short and the had good equipment. This year we drug the old 8820 out and did our little bit of harvest. 189 acres of soybeans. I contracted 4000 bushels early on for 14.35 at local coop so we had about 2000 bushels more we sold at 13 and above. Crop was above avg for our area and even a few guys reporting almost 50 bpa soybeans on select fields. Our JD is a wheat combine and absolutely will not combine green stem soybeans. The straw will fall through walkers and plug auger bed horribly. So we haven’t used it on soybeans for a few years. This year we fixed combine and started but beans dried down fast. They were all 8.5 to 9% moisture. My brother hauled the last couple loads in and I have one to deliver tomorrow. He thought we should have around 6050 bushels so they should run about 32 bpa delivered. Sad thing if I could have rehydrated them and the extra header loss harvesting at that dryness 35 to 38 bpa delivered to town would have been achieved. At least the truck is an IH.

  5. Here's a pic of carco international in fort Smith Arkansas. It was originally an international harvester ag, truck and industrial/construction dealer. They lost the ag to the case dealer in town (who quickly went bankrupt). They became the JD dealer after the JD previous dealer also went bankrupt in the 80s. They sold the JD franchise out around 15 years ago and got out of ag. They also sold stirgler, Heston, woods and other brands. Now they are a big truck dealer and leasing center.

  7. Beans are down, yielded very well. Corn is yielding well but not drying down real fast. Going to be cold tonight, low 20’s, but back to 70 by Friday.

  8. The old combine performed well this year. Finished corn today with snowflakes hitting the windshield! Yields for me ranged anywhere from 170-230 Bu/acre on corn. You can tell which varieties handled the summer stress better. Soybeans were in the 65-70 Bu range. Very satisfied with this year's results Had to have a celebratory beer when I got in tonight!

  11. Shep is a really hard dog to photograph well, with his color and the fact he doesn't like it when the camera is out. Unlike his sister Elsie (LC) who usually hams it up. His left ear has always been floppy.

  12. “Bought” this for 50 bucks today from… for lack of a better term a friend. We had a backwards negotiation in which he wanted to give it to me. He says it runs great but is “tired”, whatever that’s supposed to mean. 10:1 odds it needs some rubber parts and some filters and a spark plug, compression test will tell more. i know nothing about the 365, seems stout, i was looking for a beater to do some dirty work with.

  15. We are no where near done. We are down to 25 acres of beans yet to go. Would actually have finished them Sunday but the grain head broke and we wont have the parts til tomorrow. It rained some yesterday, drizzling on and off today with steady rain later today and drizzly tomorrow so doubt We get the beans ran til this weekend. Started running corn since we can't finish beans. Corn is yielding very well and surprisingly dry. Pulled corn out of the field at 18%moisture. After 17 months of hassel we have a fully functional new to us dryer at the setup at my house. Been a real PITA.

  16. If it happened when you were a kit there was most likely a VOR station nearby. They used to be marked by all of those crossings. With the advent of area navigation routes, the Q routes in the high altitude structure, there are somewhat fewer of those but still some such as Jamestown, which serves the NY and Boston arrivals from the west. Many VORs have been shut down as well as the NDBs since GPS has taken over. Only a skeleton structure will be left to serve, hopefully, in the event of a GPS shutdown.

  18. Condensation trails may just disappear or they may become cirrus clouds (ice crystals) and spread out depending upon conditions. It looks like you're under a fix in the airways, possibly a VOR (ground) station nearby or now an RNAV (GPS) fix on a Q route. Contrails are often the seed for cirrus clouds. It was noted that after 9 11 the sky was unusually clear and it was hypothesized that clouds begun by contrails were actually reflecting the sun in widespread fashion and actually keeping the earth cooler. As aircraft began to fly fairly soon after there was no controlled study, just observations. Of course there are other hypothesis that the opposite effect is happening and clouds caused by contrails are keeping the heat in. We know that clouds limit radiation cooling at night so there may be something to that. It probably depends on the observer's orientation. Or perhaps there are studies. The climate change folks want to eliminate contrails but maybe that will have the wrong effect.

  22. IIRC they are called Federation Squirrels . 13 stripes like the flag. The pocket gophers are bigger than the federation squirrel . Nasty little things that if handled alive will bite hard. Leave mounds of pushed up dirt and small rocks. Really hard on rock guards and sections. Ground squirrels and federation squirrels are in the same family . Make lots of holes but no big mounds like the pocket gophers do. Then of course you have the good old prairie dogs. The ground/federation squirrels are fun to shoot! I know people who use 17HMR but I just use a .22. I ain't buying a whole new platform for something I'll only shoot gophers with. Folks I know who shoot prairie dogs use 22-250 or 25.06 for the most part. I've never tried so have no recommendations. Rick

  23. Yes, thats how rear tires (Or any larger type tires) are usually done. They leave them in place. The issue here on the 1270 though, is that there is a dual tire outside of it. At minimum he needs a tube. The tube can’t be installed over top of the outer tire, so the outer tire and wheel combination needs to come off. Depending on the spacing, breaking down the inner tire and cleaning the rim up as to do a good job, would also be much more difficult (or impossible) with the dual installed as well. I try to make things as easy for those tire service guys as possible

  24. Pocket gophers don’t come above ground. They leave little piles of dirt everywhere making them annoying in hay fields. What we call just a gopher are Richardson ground squirrels. Leave a pile of dirt and a hole. We also have what is called a thirteen striped gopher. They look like a Richardson with stripes on their back.

  25. I have a dream to slab stumps, i dug out a couple old maple stumps a couple weeks ago, they were rock hard and had some of the prettiest wood i have seen, all spalted and curly. No way i was sinking my 385 into it, but after some pressure washing i plan to give this thing a whirl with a square cut chain.

  26. I have it’s red sister (Jonsered 2165). 65 cc version of the pre-Xtorq model 372. So it’s a non-strato saw. Should have a reasonably wide power band but won’t have the top end power of a 372 o.e (original edition) which is 71-72cc. I would think it wouldn’t quite touch your 562, but would be in the same ball park if everything is up to snuff. they are east to work on and tons of aftermarket parts. Could slap a 372 jug and slug on it of you want. If I remember correctly you can’t put a xtorq top end on without some machining, so be cautious there if you do change The top end.

  28. Back when I started you were encouraged to use new ammo and to borrow shotguns for trial. When you found one that you could hit with reliably you got its measurements or bought one the same. And then bought the reloader.

  29. Every time I see your dog it makes me want to disregard my own 2 dog maximum rule and go looking for one just like her. She reminds me so much of of a dog that lived in the small town I was in, in the early 90's. Her name was Bambi, and while she did belong to some people, most of the time she just wandered around main street schmoozing up to anyone and everyone. She was also great Dane size, but even little kids would go right up to her.

  31. We went to kansas prairie dog hunting several years in a row. Most farmers once they get to know you and that your competent dont mind at all. We took 204, and 223. The 22-250 get too hot too fast. You'll shoot until your barrel is about to melt. We took turns. One guy spot for the other. We had a blast. Things I've learned. The wind will drift your shots up to 10' at 1000 yards. Rattle snakes love the holes. Dont ruin your gun shooting too much. Dont shoot FMJ they ricochet like the old westerns. Sounds just like it, so we put them up right away and went with a soft point or ballistic tip. Even though the shots were clear theres no reason to take chances. Prairie dogs tend to do better with only 1 gun going. And we had just as much fun with our 17hmr rifles as we did the bigger ones. It's nice to have a friend out there you can leave your guns with so your not packing them around out to dinner or the tavern where someone will steal them out of your pickup. We use a rotating bench and vice. Your eyes will get soar from optics.

  34. At one time this was IH dealership building with the pylon but in the late 70's it was involved in a fire and remodeled into a smaller building and the pylon removed. Before the fire, it was a IH-Pontiac-GMC-Cessna dealership. About once every 6 months, he would fly in a new Cessna, usually a 172 Skyhawk or a 182 Skylane to the local airport that was 6 miles from town, take the wings off of it and tow it into town to the dealer building and put the wings back on it. Not sure when that all ended but now the building is a office for the rural water company.

  35. Maybe make another set of wood boards the correct height. Slip the short ones out and drop in the taller ones. You would have to come up with a way to connect the corners and probably a chain in the center.

  37. Yeah, found out the lights were already separated. 🙃 Doesn't look pretty but they are replaced, what a tight crappy spot. Of course the wires are way too short to work at them outside the enclosed area. Fat guy with fat hands, not a fun time! 🤬

  38. Up to a certain point of moisture above 13, some elevators only charge you with the shrink, no drying discount, think that's like 15.5% Much better to cut above than below those dry beaners are a lose at the cutter bar and real!

  42. October 16 , 80 degrees. No rain since late June. Watering red spuds to reduce skinning. Common practice for early September digging. Never this late for storage harvest. Lot of guys sitting it out till the rain comes in which is later this week. Once it starts you never know when it will quit. Last year at this time I had fields to wet to harvest, bird food doesn’t pay. Had the boss lady helping today.👍
