As I've mentioned we are having a lovely fall here, so I went to a Plowday as a guest. It took me two and a half hours of driving to get there as it was held over in British Columbia. The BC Department of Highways officers always scare the dickens out of me, but I went anyway and took my 80 Cockshutt and a couple of plows. [and dodged all the scales all right]
pic one: A friend of mine driving a 420 John Deere with a two bottom Deerborn plow.
pic two: John Deere 'D' with a three bottom.
Pic three: My 80 Cockshutt with another friend driving it while I ate my lunch.

It was very dry, OI, usually there's no dust when you're plowing. My two bottom plow wouldn't go in very deep because of the really dry ground and small plows are so light. Today I built up the tips of the shares with the welder, making them longer and lower. Then I smoothed them out with the grinder and make sure they were 3/8" lower than they used to be.

I know that some people who have to plow to live probably don't share my views, but there is something about piloting a tractor with a purpose in mind to melt some of the problems of today away. Although I don't farm out here, I love working a tractor. Outside of clearing debris and putting logs on the mill, and moving old vehicles around out here, I've been maintaining the road into here for over 30 years and I have to say, it's strangely satisfying! Love the pix Mac!

Thanks for sharing Mac, looks like fun!

There's an antique tractor pull every year about 4.5 miles from our house. The wife and I went this year for a bit, it was fun to watch.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
