Have a safe trip and don't park on the side of the interstate.

Re: Outa here fer five daze!

Have a safe trip, and remember if you get the place that, "Daddy won't sell the farm!"

Re: Outa here fer five daze!

While your looking for a farm, will the size of its mudhole be a consideration? Or will you just get a tractor and dig a "rentention pond" (really cool if ya leave an island in the middle!) and use all the excavated dirt to make whoops?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Outa here fer five daze!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Middle America was great! Just reading the newspaper I could feel my body relax.....no murder and mayhem....no Hollywoodies pushing new "liberal laws". I saw A LOT of TJs in Iowa, and quite a few YJs. I did not see a single CJ. There was an entire used vehicle lot devoted to Dodge Power Wagons; both military and civilian; in Fairfield Iowa, the nearest "big town" to the farm that I bought. The farm met or exceeded expectations, and had a beautiful 40 X 32 grain storage barn that can be very easily converted to an all-weather Jeeplab and fabrication shop of the finest quality. Jeepchick and I are; at this time; divesting ourselves of some over-priced CA realestate and will be renting for our final year. We knock down the tent in 10/'01 and escape the wierdness of CA and all that goes with it. I have to go to Iowa for a few weeks in 6/'01 to line out the builders on a double garage project; phase one of three phases; of our expansion program. We have room for a 30-foot diameter moonguy painting on the front of the barn facing the road.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Had a nice visit with LEVE and Mrs.LEVE in Minneapolis on the way back.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] It's always a treat to finally meet people who you have only known in cyberspace.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] It'll be good to live where we have more access to the heartland of America. We could even grow some corn![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Outa here fer five daze!

"we could even grow some corn!" Yeah or...you could just have th government pay you to not grow corn so the price of corn doesn't drop [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] I really think the government should do away with that and instead buy the extra corn from the farmers at the regular market price and send that to the third world countries that need our aid to feed their population instead of sending them money to do it that they only spend on their military instead [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Re: Outa here fer five daze!

Congrats Dave, us midwesterners can't wait to have you move in. When you need tips on that corn planting, let me know. By the way, if you remodel that crib, save the lumber--you won't find better wood anywhere in the world.

P.S. Sycho--We farmers have so many gripes that begin with "If Only..." that it's something of a cliche. Kinda makes me smile to see that non-farmers are the same way.

Currently looking for corporate sponsors for jeep improvements...will sell advertising space on jeep, will also sell soul/body...make an offer.

FarmJeep...O/T!

Hey FarmJeep...

Hear about the farmer who went to the hardware store on Monday Morning and bought 50 hammers for a buck a piece?

Then Teusday, Wednesday and Thursday he did the same thing.

On Friday he went in to the hardware store to place his order and the owner of the store said: "I don't mind the business, but I gotta know... what are you doing with all those hammers?"

The farmer said: "Oh, I take 'em all down to the town square and sell them for 50 cents a piece!"

The owner said: "Don't 'cha know you're loosing money on each hammer?"

"Yep", said the farmer, "But is sure beats farming!"

Good Jeepin'

Larry
