  1. Pulled the trigger on a new shed this winter before the big price hikes. It's a 52x80 heated shop with 18 side walls. I'm putting a 28 ft hydraulic door on it. In the last pic I'm building the overhead storage that'll run the length of the shop over my work bench. I'm waiting on the door, electric and how I'm going to pay for it.

  5. Is the title of a book someone gave me. The author traveled the country finding counties with less than one person per square mile. And then wrote about them. Cherry Co Nebraska is one of them. We got more cows than people, how many? I dunno but then I don't know what day it is half the time. Got me wondering, anybody else out there live in a county that would qualify? The beautiful pics that Mike posts, I'll bet he qualifies. Any way, if I go out in my pastures and don't look up at the tin cans full of people in a hurry to get somewhere other than where they been. I can feel like I'm the only one on earth.

  7. Its been awhile since this topic has been dug up. Couple of pictures of my Daughter that my Wife had done when we did family pictures. She sure loves her horse Copper. The rest are from our vacation to Colorado we just returned from. We rode from 10000'-12600' and crossed the Continental Divide.

  8. Here's a Pic of mine. It's a 65 if memory serves. It's a 282 and has 6xxx hours on it. I'd love to hear the stories that it could tell. I'm at least the 3rd owner. I got it with no fenders and added a set of clamshell fenders from a member on here. And I added an iron bull economy canopy cause of our hills/safety. It spends most of its time on a square baler

  9. Standing for the anthem should be a requirement and if you don't want to then you don't compete there are plenty of peeps that would be glad to take your place

  14. I've got a couple quotes on cooling it. From what I've been told it takes nothing to heat or cool it. I didn't put insulation under the concrete as the engineer that I asked about the concrete and my loads said it wouldn't work. He suggested a heat reflective product under the concrete. It looked like a thick bubble wrap with tinfoil on it. I think it works cause we all got sun burnt working over it laying the in floor heat tubes.

  16. It's a trenched footing around the perimeter with insulation. The panels are glued everywhere with nails every six inches around evening. The panels are 8 inches thick and go together like a Lego with 2x4s running upright. That thing is solid, they put bracing up with it but I don't think it would have needed it. I think they killed one first on just the bracing for the overhead door.

  17. What did you do for the base preparation? Did you lay down any stone? What did you use for insulation under the slab? On the 3rd picture, how wide are those panels, do they interlock together or how did you fasten them? It’s looking good, be sure to install security or @MTO will be coming!

  18. I finally got a pic of my 706. She has been neglected for several years. She is a 63 model with wide front, D282, 3pt, 1 remote. She is wearing worn out 18.4x38s now but came with 15.5x38s and 7.00x15 fronts. The original owner had the shifter update to 756 style by the dealer. We are the second owner and she is still pretty tight. The bolts in her steering arm are stripped out. I need to replace the shaft in the front bolster but am unsure how. I start her occasionally to keep her loosened up. Thx-Ace

  19. Exactly! I won't watch for the same reason, as well as refusing to spend my valuable time watching very well and hugely overpaid people play a game when most (not all) cannot even carry on a coherent conversation.

  21. If I was a coach for any Olympic team, it would be known that any disrespect towards our country and you are off the team. That should be a standard for all coaches and all of America.

  22. I've been coming to this site for 15 years for mostly the good stories and pics of family tractors. My family collects some, have a few myself. What really turns me off about this site is the moment someone posts something about a "rare" or "uncommon" item being legit, everyone goes negative in .5 nanoseconds. Let people tell their story. I don't know any of you guys or your tractor selling history. If something doesn't look right, then let people do their research themselves. He obviously had his story straight and it looks like he is on the right track with this one. Cut him some slack!

  23. Maybe not really awesome but I thought interesting. I was sitting on my big hill watching for lightning strike grass fires when I caught this. After about ten minutes, it pulled back up into its cloud

  24. As far as I am concerned, I don't care who/what/where/when. You take a knee, you disrespect this country, I give you zero respect. Some things are not tolerated. Not negotiable. End of discussion.

  25. They are gifted to be certain. Honestly, I never had any use for sports on the world stage or any other so it won’t affect my viewing much either way.

  26. Wife said it was before or after anthem, not during? (Doesn’t make it right) Just my opinion but taking a knee is disrespectful and does not prove anything but the fact that you are ungrateful of being a US citizen and gifted athlete. All of them that want to be disrespectful like that can stay in Japan. We do not need your selfish attitude here.

  28. Thats funny there are a lot of people who can't stand being alone, every year when hunting I get the same thrill of which you speak, when I rode the sickle all over h*lls half acre it was a hoot, sleeping under the stars or a parked 18 wheeler, but, i also have no aversion to standing in the middle of a crowd, but if I have my druthers....................

  29. I love the Olympics. It is on the tv whenever I'm in the house. **** I'm even listening to it on Sirius in the truck tonight. I don't like when Some asshat tries to politicize the games to further their agenda. I didn't like when they allowed nba to make up the "dream team", them ****** got enough give to em without taking the Olympics away from the amateurs. I feel for the families of these athletes who can't be their to enjoy the rewards of all the sacrifice because of above mentioned asshats. I am impressed with the drive, determination and sacrifice of these young people and their families. If you don't like it, fine, thank God we don't all like the same thing. I am a fan of these young athletes and will remain one.

  32. It's whatever you design and it shows up on 3 semi trailers. It comes with a set of plans and everything is numbered. The attic is blown in insulation with plastic sheet and perferated steel for noise. The holy steel was a little more but I don't get any echo so far. Grinding and flopping those I beams around it's quite in there already.

  37. My take on this is a soldiers view. I swore and oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Among the rights granted in the Constitution is the right to peacefully protest. Taking a knee while being disrespectful is a form of peaceful protest. I did not give up my right to peacefully protest and shall do so by boycotting any sport when the athletes are disrespectful of our country. Sorry Seth. On this matter I cannot agree with your view at all. I've needed food, thus needed farmers. I've needed goods therefore needed factory workers and truck drivers. Having served overseas I've needed mariners and seaman. Like anyone, doctors, nurses and a large selection of medical services. I've needed snot nosed kids behind the counter to ring up the things I buy. I've needed road workers to maintain the highways and the other folks who keep my electricity going. I have never ever needed and athlete. Rick

  40. A short 5000 mile loop. A red tractor show and a few days with my grandaughter, what could be better. 25 days, 4 in the rain suit, some chilly mornings, and hot afternoons. When the temps went up, I started hitting the road earlly and stopping early in the afternoon. I really liked riding the northern panhandle of TX, good roads, little traffic, and I saw several LPG farmalls along the way. BK.

  42. Here it is again - the ewetube link works this time. 15 minutes long but absolutely fascinating. Well worth watching. An 18 year-old just out of high school was trained to take pictures of damage done to German targets by B-17 bombers. He flew in a British Spitfire fitted with extra fuel tanks where the guns had been. In other words, he flew over Germany unarmed…WWII American Spitfire Pilot… Stored for 61 years in two suitcases of 16mm home movies that were inherited by filmmaker William Lorton from his great uncle who served as a Flight Surgeon. Those suitcases contained 3 hours of war footage that included a compelling crash landing of a Spitfire in 1944 Filmed in a 2005 interview with the now 83 year old pilot and seeing the expression on his face when he realizes it is him in the cockpit, is something you won't soon forget. At 18 years old, he was all alone, behind enemy lines, with no guns, no escort, and he gladly did it. They just don't make them like that anymore. It was truly the greatest generation and we owe them so much.
