    Todays pics.

    Picked up and got to use our rental scout today.

    Seems to work pretty well, and speeds things up quite a bit.

    Cell phone pics.

    Do you think the Scout can last?

    They are still better and faster than the small Morooka and Yanmar dumpers, and you can carry a victim with you while you go bush whacking.

    We had yet another rain day today, so I took the guys on a field trip over to the American Pickers Shop In Leclaire Iowa. Then we went to the John Deere Pavilion.

    I got to play with a Deere Excavator Simulator that was there. Granted I had to fight it out with some 8 year olds, but I did get some "Seat Time"

    Pretty cool deal. You could feel the platform move and react the same way an excavator does when you pull in a big bucket. You could chose control patterns, and you had to load a truck during the simulation. But, I must have been sitting in a 50D or something, because it took like 50 buckets to fill a D250 Deere/Bell truck.

    The guys told me I had my mean operator face on, and I had a small groups of kids watching me play the gam,.. I mean run the machine.

    Deere had that "simulator" at ConExpo. Pretty cool. I would look to have one at home.

    What? Then you are taking your work home with you.

    Forget that, give me a woman simulator instead, I can practice using my pick up lines with a simulated hot babe.

    I thought your woman simulator was in the palm of your hand...

    Naww, ever since my hand tremors started I've had to resort to other methods and techniques. And I exceeded my BlackBerry monthly downloading limit. Damn smart phones.
