7UPuller's version of desk work
From what little I have seen of your 'desk work', it mostly involves delegation with the girls and Kevin copping the bulk of it. System seems to work pretty well though
To have an area at Woodland, 2014, dedicated to Buster's gadgets would be a real treat. Buster learned a lot from R. G. and then went on to add a heap of tricks of his own. There is another bloke doing some 'different' things with machines down SoCal way these days. He has turned out toys like the Cat 25M grader, the S18G fill blade and the D57T scraper. I think there are videos of all of these on Youtube under SoCal Earthmovers.
I have heard a rumor that Buster was the brains behind the Collins ripper that was fitted to some DD9's for ripping hard pan. I wonder if there are any of those 'delicate little back-scratchers' left around now. It sure would have been a sight to see, a Collins ripper-equipped DD9G with the hooks sunk seven feet in the ground, another DD9G pulling up front and a third DD9G pushing behind. Over 2,200 horsepower pulling two shanks seven feet deep.
Re Jessie's permission, if he can't remember giving it, tel him to take memory training. I 'distinctly heard' him say it would be a great idea and to get started on it. And I heard that from only 7,800 miles away. LOL. I am hoping to be able to come over for that one a month ahead of the show to help put it together. That will be a LOT of fun.
You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.
