    That sure looks like Ohio and my guess is it is Rome K/G and his dad doing their thing.

    That first tractor pulling the Challenger has the fenders and battery box similar to one of Juiceman's rigs. Could it be?

    Yeah Rog, makes me wonder as well. I see a disc unhooked along the edge of the landing. Looks like Sutter Buttes way off in the background. Out near the Sutter Basin, (near me) I heard of several instances whereby someone would fire off a farmers crawler (always an AC) and “ set it free”. Those tractors went for many miles before they became mired or found a Valley oak to butt up against and bury itself. Engine running still spinning the tracks.
    Not my tractors in the video, but nice clean Ag machines for sure!

    I had my 14 year old son do some discing and he didn't pay attention and this is what happens when you have auto steer.

    the background looks like the Petaluma Valley basin, south end near Hwy 37, in the marsh farming area. I work (play) in that area for a friend of mine, farming with several challangers and a D6D.

    My bad. Bay Area Farmer... I guess that would really be by you Tom! Maybe the dealer decals made me think it was near me. I when we used to go to Sebastopol every day, I used to feel sorry for the farmer at Hwy 37 by Sears Point. During their wheat harvest they had to cross the highway to the field. Traffic so backed up, the driver could be sitting for a LONG time to cross.
