Seeing how I am no longer in the lumberyard biz and have been in the feed supplement biz for about 1 month now, I think it's only fitting to start a new thread about my new adventures of delivery Agri King feed and supplements to IL, IA, and mainly WI.  

 

My plan is to put pictures of what I encounter along my travels...from cool scenery, cows, my trucks, and of course IH machinery I see along the way.

I'll start by posting a few pics of my travels today.  The IH with the rake is a 1066????  It doesn't look like much, but it is a different spot each week.  This one is up near Aovoca, WI.

WI seems to have gotten plenty of rain, from what I hear some places are damn near swept away.  This was in Loganville, WI...I know that water ain't supposed to be that high.

No texting, just taking a few pictures is all.  Most of these I was stopped by either traffic or small country road with none around so I can stop for a quick snap.

I am for it. Nice to see other parts of our country. 

I like crossing the cheddar curtain and seeing that country.  I'm on 4lane, 2lane, and some pretty small country roads in my travels.  

Got to see some nice views today, through all the rain drops, in the area of The House on the Hill dropping south of Dodgeville heading home.

Nothing wrong with stopping to take pictures, and remember this "NO pixels were harmed in the posting of your pictures".

Art, I see what you mean on the first picture...I had zoomed in with my phone...it looked better before I posted it.😀

Clear enough to see that the left rear tire appears to need airing up.

I will second that. A young woman here is lucky to be alive. Texting and driving, drove head on into a neighbors silage truck. Not sure how she survived that, but got out of it with two broken arms and a few other broken bones. Cut her out with the jaws of life. Pushed the engine in the truck back several inches from what I hear.

Sounds like she is very lucky.

Don't you mean The House on the Rock in Dodgeville area?

And yes , rain the last couple weeks has been record setting...Black Earth got 14-15" in 24 hours an all time record for WI in 24 hour time period. U.S. 14 thru Black Earth is closed for 2-3 months to replace 2 bridges that got washed out.

Also , The Shoe Box (largest shoe store in midwest) lost a large part of their inventory  of 875,000 pair of shoes from flooding. The store is located right next to U.S. 14.

Ahhh, Rainman, AKA Paul beat me to the House on the Rock.  Hope you went north of Dodgeville, past Don Q Inn,  Farrah Fawcett autographed that airplane.

I've been over that bridge south of Lone Rock on 133 many times.  I used to have to visit Scot Industries in Muscoda every six months to inventory my parts.  Hey, It was a Free Lunch while I was there. Following day I did the machine shop in New Berlin.  That bridge never bothered me in my F150, but it was a neat bridge, too bad there wasn't some place to pull over close to it.

Couple winter breaks when I was in college Dad got me a week's work driving a bulk feed truck for the elevator we got all our hog feed from.  It was based out of Osco but most of my loads came from Alpha, sometimes got bulk bean meal from ADM in Galesburg. Delivered all over Henry County, Ill.  My truck wasn't as fancy as yours, F-600 or 700 Ford, about a 1972-'73 vintage.  Nice thing about bulk feed,  no finger print loads!

Correct, I meant on House on the Rock, but I was thinking about the hill I was climbing as I drove by it. 

I know some guys began chopping a bit earlier than they wanted to, but with the rain and forecast lately, they knew they wouldn't be able to get in the fields.

All my loads are either bulk bags or 40-50lb bags.  No pallet weighs more than 1 ton, so it isn't terrible, but just make sure I am pulling the bulk bags downhill when unloading.

I would say there is a 60/40 mix between farm drops and mill drops.  I very rarely have to chuck a bag.  It just like when I worked for Golden Harvest, if it has forks, I'm using it.
