  1. Who made the Ford brush hogs? I have one and was looking at working on it, might be cheaper to buy the parts off the manufacturer then the ford ag route
  2. I agree. Rip ma’am. And like Catech said, a family lost someone. I really think she as a feminist wanted to retire and leave the appointment of a female justice for Hilary. Or not. Who knows
  3. Wow. That was a good read. And good on them
  4. Yeah. It’s a privilege, not a right.
  5. Tony has a reversed 300 or 350 with a loader running on the funny gas. Neat rig for sure, was a farmers project
  6. Your neighbor a Ham radio type? That looks like the antenna hams are buying now a days
  7. Oldest daughter was in high school when my boys were toddlers, she was expected to help out and pick them up from grandmas after school. She got to have a Kia to use for school and later work. So she worked to earn the use of the car, we also had her in a school without bus service so she needed a ride to school, and with me being on the road for months on end it was easier for my wife My boys are getting to the age they will be driving soon. We have not decided how this is going to be addressed, but I should start watching for old Toyota pickups (without campers, yikes) The best answer to your question from my family, is We work darn hard, We can provide a vehicle for the kids, We may want to, why not? And they are my kids
  8. Regarding snow plowing, local guy has a set price for a set number of plow visits. After that he bills each snow fall
  9. So is the tractor supply oil ok in my hydro? Will a chrome stack improve the horsepower of my diesel how innovative is JD? anything but COVID, please
  10. I get it, I do the same things with boilers and plumbing. But now I am looking at getting into the business I really believe the mower thing could be a snag, but you know the people
  11. Good grief. I was trying to eat while typing that What I was trying to say is take what you earn an hour at work, estimate what each house will take a month in time, combine the two
  12. Cash or are you going to get a 1099? Different deals. Insurance and bonding? Just to CYA? i would take what you make at work, and decide how many hours. As for the lawn mower, use your own, otherwise it will be a problem, ran when parked ect
  13. And the white PEX will be put right when he gets the walls built
  14. Spent a couple afternoons and got my buddies boiler work going. This is the second of three A lot to go yet, he bought a house that was tore apart for a remodel. House was gutted, tore apart, full of stuff for the remodel (piles and piles of new, used, and who knows), and from the 50’s. no heat and it’s getting a bit cool. Should have heat on next week also headed north in the morning, repair work north of Atigun pass for a couple days
  15. The extremes in daylight are really unique and take a bit of getting used to. Thanks for the words on my wife, still gets me what happened.
  16. Glad you enjoyed the trip. It’s an amazing place. and my old room mate and running buddy was on the show for awhile, small world
  17. Winter is coming and daylight is fading still dark now, at 6 am local, but there is light on the horizon . it is impressive, one day I will try a video on the river. Rivers here are crazy, wild and more than a little dangerous. They are always changing, fast moving, and full of trees, rocks and debris. Add to that the temp and we have a lot of deaths every year. It’s kind of like the ocean, you don’t go unless you know what your doing or have a guide and yes, tastes great, and tender
  18. 1.03125Is 1 and 1/32
  19. Just orings like shoe said. I read on here about using bolts or threaded rod to make line up pins and disassembled the block on the tractor and changed the orings out on my 460, hardest part was getting there
  20. And let me guess, can’t find enough people, cause they can make that at home?
  21. Here FedEx only ships to the state main hub in Anchorage and then mails it. Our zip code starts here and. Runs north of town a ways, so they quit the whole zip code as not profitable. I talked to the gal at the FedEx office here in town, she told me they are canceling service to unprofitable areas. Great UPS has been great, and I have no complaints about the USPS. We have lots of shipping issues and costs, no one beats USPS for speed and cost here.

    My buddy`s wife

    Yeah. I got some good advice here on this and bought a transfer switch to make it work. Keeping my fingers crossed. Some outages around here but hopefully none before I get it all wired
