  1. Sure is impressive, glad you got to experience it too. Pictures and video can't do justice.
  2. You need to think less about just what a drawbar will hold, a 24 row planter without a bunch of extra stuff hanging on it doesn't necessarily pull all that hard in the field- it's in transport when you really need a tractor in front that can control it. Boxcar Magnums are fine for what they are, but in this day and age would not be my choice for a large planter. MX230 would be my budget tractor pick for that planter, the MX chassis is just better balanced for load carrying and so much nicer for anything to do with 30" rows. Or, as mentioned above the small frame articulated tractors would be a great fit as well.
  3. On all the combines and the thousands of hours since we had a 715 with manual auger, I’ve never yet worn out the cylinder for an unload auger or the switch that controls it...
  4. I run a 1250 with 20/20 monitor. Only manually adjusted down force, I've had so many weigh pins go bad that I don't even have any plugged in anymore. Zero desire for Delta Force here. S don't think it makes me any more money than using a Pro 600, but it's way nicer for swath control, and we have Fieldview plus the PP yield monitor in the combine and it's so much easier to do your field mapping that way. The stock ASM meters do a fine job, but someday when money allows I'd really love to switch to V Drives to clean up the toolbar and get rid of the hydraulic drives and chains and shafts and bearings and air clutches. The air clutches are also a maintenance issue for me at times, particularly the ones around the wing wheels that spend a lot of time operating in the dust kicked up by those tires.
  5. Megan made ham & beans & cornbread tonight. It was great. Here's a couple of the last times I've done the cooking. Yep, that's French Onion soup on a Weber kettle grill.
  6. Here SDMan, you need a few more photos.
  7. I actually do a good share of the cooking, cleaning, and laundry but.... can’t help but laugh at this.
  8. I've embarked on a pizza project that has unfortunately been very much delayed by the 2019 farming season. Hopefully we will get to work on it soon and maybe I can share here.
  9. I'll play. Croque Madame with home-grown peaches and scratch whipped cream. Biscuits and gravy. Barbecue sundaes. Chicken dijon. Rum Chata French Toast, with amaretto and butter blueberry sauce. And Bloody Mary. Smoked meatloaf with cedar plank mashed potatoes. Like to do some canning too. Tri-tip sliders with candied jalapeños and purple potato chips. Huevos Rancheros. Sriracha maple drumsticks. Oh heck, now I'm getting hungry again...
  10. First off, don't concern yourself much with MP. That's not a very good metric for what makes a quality photo or what the capabilities of a camera are. Nikon/Canon doesn't much matter either, except that once you start with one brand your future stuff will need to match it. I use Nikon, but the two are comparable in price, features, abilities. There are certain lenses in each lineup which are maybe superior for very niche applications, but you are nowhere near the point to be concerned with that. Something worth considering if you step to a DSLR, is that you don't necessarily need the latest model. There are some very, very good buys on discontinued models. Could get into more specifics of that if I knew a little more of what your desires to do with it are, but you can definitely get into a midrange body 2-3 generations old for what the newest entry-level body costs. Actually, I have a D5100 that I'd be willing to part with very reasonably. I mostly just carry a D7100 now- and that's a 2013 vintage camera. Does me just fine for the time being. You probably don't want to know about the cost of a couple lenses I own, though.... Oh, and batteries in DSLR cameras are a quantum leap above other stuff. I just did three days in Oshkosh, something close to 2,000 shots before weeding out the junk, and never needed to pull my battery out to charge.
  11. Love my 6.0 gasser, don't know how an engine could possibly be any more trouble-free. Maybe not the thing if it was going to live on a trailer all day long every day, but there aren't probably 5% of diesel pickups sold that truly do that....
  12. The 6x88 did NOT have rubber latches from the factory, we finally did put them on the 6788 we had though. The original hood latch mechanism was just another one of those janky poorly thought out things that kept the 2+2 from being as good of a tractor as they should have been....
  13. Sure, because there are plentiful coaling facilities all over the modern railroad to refuel it every few hours. Do you have any idea how much extra cost would have been involved with building that infrastructure for an excursion train?
