The windy weather the past year will give you lots of fuel to use next fall/winter, that's for sure!

Is that a real bullet hole or one of those fake stickers?

Just da sticker. PO put a little dent in the corner of the hood, tapped the dent out from the inside and covered the paint with the sticker. Got to like a guy that cares that much about his tractor. I started to peel it off but it covers some dinged paint. That ran the effort to return level up to F-it.

Good work. I like the scabbard. I've seen a nice looking platform/bed that I think mounted to the 3 pt. Nice to have a place to keep your gear, fuel, handtools. Cool project.

Great minds think alike and so do we! I made a 4'X4' plywood box for the garage to hold firewood. The SOP was to pull the little red truck up to the wood shed, throw wood in the truck then throw it onto the wood bin in the garage. I can get wood for the stove without going outside and also not have a bunch of wood "inside" the warm part of the house. Warm wood tends to let bugs hiding under the bark wake up and wander around in the house. I don't like to have more than a tote bag at a time inside.

New method will have the 4X4 bin dissembled and rebuilt strong enough to be made into a 3 point rear hitch compatible attachment. Drive tractor to wood shed, fill bin, drive tractor back into garage and done. When the rear bin is not acting as a split wood bin it can be used as a big trunk or filled with ballast. Better balance when hauling rounds out of the woods as I can fill the rear bin and loader for each trip. I plan to add a door to the back of the bin so I can hand load it. No more rear wheels going light with a heavy load in the FEL. Good place to put "helpers" too. In the FEL is a big no no and on the fender is less safe for riders.

Busted. Mid week day chilling out on the river and you would think no one would notice. Nice day on the river for sure. Went down to the dam, poked around in the backwaters at the bend and then back up river past the next bend. Lots of critters including a yearling deer under an outcropping next to the waters edge.

Teresa buys the paper and does not notice the picture until later. Good thing it was not the secretary and I had not called in sick..


..and no Teresa and I don't weight 300 pounds each. It is a baggy shirt with a baggy T under it. nice day but a bit crisp early. 20 min later all was in the dry bag.

Right, you're not growing up.
