    thanks Neil....i actually thought of that but i wanted to focus more on the operating aspect...

    -fixing and repairing is not my favourite part....but i realize for many people it would be....that's very big piece of the puzzle...saving, restoring, rescuing...keeping these old girls running

    HeHeHe! That's right! Yea reminds me of the story from the book "Bulldozer", Bill Glen sets out on his D2 to rescue Betty Barlow stuck in the snow. What a hero! I never could find a pretty girl stuck in the snow! lol

    Default Fav?????????????

    Hi, Folks.
    Being away somewhere on my own with nobody else around to interrupt me so that I can go into a 'meditative state' and get on with the job.

    I have been tempted many times to toss my cell phone out on the track and keep going.

    Just my 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Deas Plant.

    Rolling nice moist dirt on a warm spring day with my 12 grader. Rome, I was a mechanic in a snow region. Nothing about working in the snow sounds good. Blowing 10 ft drifts was fun until something breaks.
