Usually don't say much on here, but I do love looking at the pictures and watching the videos of your place! Coming from a guy that works his @$$ off year round to manage 50 acres, I commend you for your efforts!

FYI - Specks were on the march through eastern MO Saturday night......

That's up to Cason, but I am down if he gives me the green light. I want to make a better one, like..mind boggling. If not there, I'll have to figure something out because I would like to make one regardless. I'll whore myself out, idc.

You can drive awfully close to them on a tractor. I imagine part of that is you never actually drive directly to them. Usually you work your way there gradually and they just get used to you. As far as the noise goes they've been know to keep some people up at night.
