  1. Couldn't even tell you the last time I had cold cereal. Yuck.
  2. There is nothing fun about carting with anything that has a TA, and I can't imagine anything fun about doing it with a 4166. (And I've done it with a 1086 and a 6788.) Now if you want to make yanking a grain cart fun, it looks like this.
  3. Some time ago when we used 66s for main field tractors, we had a very early white cab 966, a red cab 1066, and a late black stripe 1066. We had good foam, cowl covers, pedal boots, and some added insulation- and there was no appreciable difference inside any of them under load. You just can't cure all of the stuff that comes into those cabs from the steering pedestal and the top of the transmission housing that you sit on, with no actual firewalls like what came along later.
  4. This is NOT pilot error, and not faked- thought some of you might enjoy the Blue Angels' opposing solo executing his low transition during a practice at El Centro yesterday. You can search youtube for "Mkblues1" if you want to see videos from there during winter training, this is from about the 20 minute mark of the one dated 2/7/2020. The guy on the ladder is Mkblues1, it knocked him down....
  5. He sounds more like the sort who would wish for a Corn Belt halftime show, a bunch of 350 pound+ women in sweat pants riding around on Walmart scooters....
  6. Especially with that godawful semi-mounted planter. Used to run one of those on a 1066 for a while and I'd rather be beaten with a rubber hose than have to do that again...
  7. Seeing that Sasquatch in the vertical never gets old. Have to be a little crazy to come up with the idea of a jet biplane, but is sure is impressive.
  8. Fill 'er up! How about some naval fighter photos from Oshkosh last summer?
  9. Somewhat of a tangent, but here's a cool link involving B-17 history with with a new paint scheme on a current USAF F-15C that some of you might enjoy. https://taskandpurpose.com/f15-wwii-paint-job-honors-medal-of-honor-hero?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=EBB+01.28.20&utm_term=Editorial+-+Early+Bird+Brief&fbclid=IwAR1iMZAqhXKCWUgMnh3wyIiS9p6nmhlxFYnUb2HN8wt-MafpdnDUoIf1bT8
  10. Or go bigger, and bring all your friends!
  11. Just saw 1917 yesterday, and have to admit I didn't notice the tractors- but there's so much to see. I'm probably going to go back and watch it again in the next week or two. For anybody wondering, yes it IS that good of a film. And go see it on the big screen, this is one that needs to be experienced that way. It's not one to wait around and rent the DVD for.
  12. Sure is impressive, glad you got to experience it too. Pictures and video can't do justice.
  13. 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
  14. 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...
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. Here SDMan, you need a few more photos.
  18. I actually do a good share of the cooking, cleaning, and laundry but.... can’t help but laugh at this.
  19. 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.
  20. 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...
  21. 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 th
  22. 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....
  23. 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....
