  1. You have already lost out if you are afraid of the system. Pull him out of school and be a DAD!

    This week

    Took 50 most of the way. Headed south to Westcliff and Walsenburg. There was fresh snow on the top of Monarch pass I tend to believe that Colorado peaches might be larger than the others? Ones we got this year weren’t quite ripe. Interesting talking with the farmers. They were fighting deer tearing up the orchard but said bear do more damage? They are in the process of harvesting grapes. Lots of migrant workers.

    This week

    I took a load of 12-0-0-26 out to Palisade Colorado. If anyone gets Colorado peaches, that is the area. I had about 2 miles of TIGHT orchard roads to deal with. Then headed to Texline Texas for a load of fertilizer to come back to Hastings Nebraska with. US 50 is torn up and had to wait an hour for the pilot car. I am pretty much a flat lander, but went over 3 major mountain passes and survived it. Heading to Iowa here in a few for 1 more load before calling it a week.
  4. Mike’s funeral will be on Friday at 2

    E V help

    My experience with MY E V, don’t get to far away from the repair place OR the charger. We have both a carbon emission based and a green emission based rescue modes. I will get pictures of each. They seem to get used about every third time we use the E V.

    E V help

    I don’t know whether to thank you or laugh!! So I will say thanks here and laugh with the emoji.
  7. I would think that solar power would be by far the most efficient way, shoot it had ought to be self sufficient. Solar and wind energy. You should never have to plug it in.

  9. Heart attack. He was 150 pounds overweight but he still out lived his Dad by 5 years. I have heard different stories but no official word, other than by the time they got the chopper there he was gone. I don’t think there was ever a need in the community that Mike didn’t try to help with. Pretty scary. He was either 3 or 8 months older than I. We spent a lot of time together growing up. Will definitely be missed.
  10. Heard a bit ago that there were 2 deaths? Buddy of mine said that they had a little shower and he thought most of the stuff on private land was out or at least had black all around it. He had some bales still burning. A bit like salt in an open wound. Already short of feed. The grass that he saved for winter gone as well as a good share of his hay, gone. All that so someone could go ride their side by side. Sorry a bit of a low blow, but 2 lives lost and the livelihood of numerous others at stake?
  11. They lost a firefighter also. RIP Mike 😢
  12. At one time, this was the world’s largest hand planted forrest. Pine trees close to 60 feet tall. One picture I saw was of the tree nursery. They start trees to send all over the US. Back when I was a kid, it was our own paradise. No one had discovered it yet. A couple years ago we went through there and it was like driving through Omaha.
  13. https://www.1011now.com/2022/10/02/halsey-evacuated-due-wildfire/ 14 miles south of where I grew up. Classmate of mine posted on Facebook that the 4H lodge and all of the cabins are gone. Prayers for the safety of all involved.
  14. Dodge gasser won’t get decent mileage no matter what. Don’t think if you get a 4.9 it will improve your mileage either, IT WON’T!! I like Mopars, but other than a Chrysler 300, I have never had a gas MOPAR get decent mileage.
  15. Did something similar with one of your neighbors. Sorted off one of their heifers for the third time that week. Called Phill and told him either you keep her home, or pick her up in Valentine. He said her owner was from Iowa and wouldn’t be impressed. I said she will be on our scale, but she is a tad bit edgy. You might wanna leave her in the trailer over night if you come get her. He loaded her up, I hauled her to Valentine the following Monday. A week later he told me I wasn’t kidding and the check was on the way to Iowa.
  16. Don’t know squat about a rotory combine, but give me an old Massey and I am pretty sure I can get a cleaner sample and leave less in the field, but only get about half the acres in a day, on corn. I took a lot of pride in setting up a machine, but again it has been 30 years and my embellisher might have added to it.
  17. I know a guy who did that.🤫🥴
  18. I can already see the parking lot there. A bullrack that is still dripping as you unloaded a block away, a tanker that smells like sulfur, as I unloaded 25 miles south. A gas tanker that is sitting in line to load 15 miles away. I might have to borrow a Petercar so I fit in. 😊
  19. @sandhillerWhatever happened to the big truck you guys had that lost the motor east of town? Ugly thing that was maybe a 4X4? Looked like it should have been a good deal but it sat in Marty’s shop forever. The other one that intrigued me was the one Turner got for Kimes.
  20. It’s been years since I fought with them, but it seems like you have to bleed all the air out, by wasting a bunch of oil. Seems like you had to hold the lever forever, then cycle it 5000 times, or something like that. I sorta remember we put depth stops on all the cylinders on something that had phasing cylinders, because we couldn’t get it to work again. But again it was YEARS AGO.
  21. I watched a Claas chopper and pair of semi trucks open up a field this morning, as I was unloading. Light dried out corn, but it was still reasonably green. I was surprised to see that they were able to fill the back of the trailer, but he also blasted the windshield as they made the corner. Pretty interesting. We used to unload combines on the go with semi’s out in Colorado. Once you get used to it, it is easier than stopped.
  22. Every gas tractor I have owned has been 6 volt originally and I start them on 12. Fairbanks were notorious for moisture tracking in the cap. Dad always used a Fairbanks mag on the SC Case that he had on an irrigation well. If it rained any amount, the tractor would shut down.
