  1. I would love that setup for mowing around here. Great looking tractor, thanks for sharing the pictures.
  2. I do not like duck eggs, they have a different taste and one I do not care for. Our chickens free range so they are also eating bugs but duck eggs taste a little musty is how I would put it. They are bigger than most chicken eggs.
  3. I do not live close to you any longer.
  4. i have been thinking of doing meat ducks, the mess is what is holding me back.
  5. it was built for tractor rides, crossing the Mackinac bridge comes to mind, it looks like it was nicely done for that purpose. I have seen lots of pictures of tractors done up like this. This is the first I have seen for sale. I imagine it will not be an easy sale as most people doing this seem to build it specifically for there use.
  6. I like the two tone colors, truck looks cool.
  7. I googled Tony Dow, he is still alive did a lot of TV and movie appearances back in the 70's.
  8. I had a KE175 as my first motorcycle as well, got it in 1979 and sold it around 1991. The friend who bought it still has it and still rides it.
  9. @Dasnake it was the "man in the mountain" New Hampshire
  10. I thought you were supposed to use vise grips for this sort of repair.
  11. 5, is definitely not enough, not sure what the answer to this would be. There is always something that you don't have and would be cool to own.
  12. The brakes show a zerk in the parts manual. I do not see one on the clutch pedal.
  13. porch is right next to the road, built for stopping and visiting.
  14. I have only been to California once, there is a lot to see and spending the whole 3 weeks there would probably be pretty easy.
  15. if you can I would suggest flying into one city traveling for 3 weeks and fly home from someplace else. There is a lot to see and as already been mentioned 3 weeks is not a long time. I would pick one region and spend time seeing what it has to offer.
  16. The farms were all sold by the 80's, there was a Allis Chalmers WD-45 still around at that point, I think that one of my cousins still has it. My grand father was pretty insistent that no one was farming after him in the family.
  17. in the early 80's there were several instances with rattlesnakes in Letchworth park. My grandparents neighbors in Perry found one in there garage after having dinner at the Glen Iris in the park. I never worried about them while hunting in the park, as late November was going to be to cold for them to be out. There were lots of overhangs and good spots for them to den up when you started hunting down in the gorge.
  18. My wife's grandfather was part of that mission. He passed before we met, but one of the Aunts told me the story years ago.
  19. @cjf711 yes, something quite like that, maybe a little more wind tolerant.
  20. Steel frame, concrete floor with some nice aprons for loading and unloading. Tall enough for equipment to come and go for cleaning chores. Set up so manure spreaders could be loaded from either end. I am thinking about the work it would be working it by myself and making that work as easy to do as possible. My cousin runs about 20 cows and one bull with nothing but a run in shed for them. I would envision something more like a feed lot, easy to clean up and easy to feed them. Some of it probably depends on where you are building it, what is the weather. A nice size building with easy access to the outside and fans inside to move air around, kind of a cross between a dairy barn and a feed lot.
  21. for sure froofroo, but if you are a kid might go nice with a burger.
  22. is what he ordered a milkshake or coffee? I do not see where he ordered coffee. I googled the order and the picture it produced looks more like a milkshake.
