im not farmer farmer, i grew up on a pig farm, we have some land but have share cropped it all my life, worked for many farmers of row crop/livestock varieties, driven lots of different farm equip in a number of colors, worked on so many things i dont even want to think about it, mostly rust with a tiny bit of paint left on it here/there, broken ,worn out, old, but still trying to make the best of it. 

I take care of our place and help others around me with theirs that dont have the equipment or ability. I am blessed to have stuff that will work sometimes and the basic aptitude to keep things functional to a lesser degree than a lot here. 

im a hack welder, hack mechanic, terrible carpenter, shameful plumber, shocking electrician. I know my limits and leave the amazing stuff for the professionals on here like jmech, bitty, mto, sdman, finney, so many other great mechanics and fixer guys with so many skills. I cant even begin to pour out all the honors and respect i have for them and their sheer determination, confidence, abilities, and knowledge. I didnt even scratch the surface with those names. WE have veterans too my hats off to them!!!!

I trust people on here probably way more than I should but I also respect them and their knowledge of ranching, lazywp sandhiller and all the transport drivers be it food, livestock, freight, tankers take your pick, this is a working mans site and so many with the love of the lord that makes me hopeful for what is left of our great country. 

yes I am a people farmer - I love the people here - there is a glorious harvest of families on here - to me that is what makes RPFs so great!!!

what do you write about farm equipment

 

Most what I write are news articles but some times also editorial articles. Also i make some photo slides of oldtimer events, shows by farm equipment dealers and importers.
