Truck looks good, I am surprised I haven't seen it around. I have been over that way for the last month running detasseling machines for Pioneer. Being my first year in business it is taking some time to get established, and I thought it would be some good quick money working for them while lining up jobs. Your mower looks nice too, I would like to get something like that for next year so I could pick up a few yards and larger areas that I would pick up in A town. Are you going to letter it or anything? If I see you around I will stop and introduce myself, I don't think I will mistake your rig for anybody else.

A Town....Which one would that be?

I go past the Pioneer Plant North of town once a week on Wednesday. You'd probably allready be in the fields by the time I'm driving by.

Yeah, feel free to say Hi. I have seen a large amount of you guys out cutting corn. That should almost be over for the year...right?

Lettering....I origionally wanted to...but I"m not sure what I'm going to do.

I am from Aurora. I have been starting by 8am and getting back sometime between 11 and midnight. We are just about done, destroying male rows a few days and that is giving me time to start advertising again for the fall and start planning for snow. I just have a few small jobs for the fall so I am a little nervous.

I had some magnets done for my pickup, and I hate them. I have a guy out of Sutton that is really good and going to help me come up with some nice stickers for my truck, dump and all my other equipment, should have done that to begin with.

Nope, still just using it as it was.

Got in a "wreck" with it the other day. A Suburban came into my lane and hit the drivers rear of the dovetail with their front right fender of their vehicle. I was going 55 and they were going at least 65 passing me.

Took off a 8$ clearance light and left a black mark on my van.


Totally junked their fender and actually ripped the door open!!! Hit their heater lines too....cuz they were leaking fluid also.

After I'm done with insurance crap I will post pics. Probably should wait till it is all over with.

How do you like running a rig like that overall? I'm really considering something like that.

I love it. I have a WIDE 17' long platform that can haul more weight than you can imagine.

All of that in the same length of my f150+5'x8' trailer.

I could use more cab space, but oh well. That can be next on my ever growing list of things to do.
