Ghost Town ?

Has this place turned in to a ghost town ? We have some here out west, is this one of them ? I check in every day and see my name on all most all of the threads and fill like I am talking to myself . Has chevy and dodge taken over Idaho and pushed ford out . P.S I will come back in a few days and answer that question if nobody else does .

I don't farm commercially myself, I did just turn over 1/4acre to plant a garden in the spring though. I built a cultivator to pull behind my garden tractor, works great but would have been better if I could have burned the field first.

I grew around and did do farm work but got in to construction and stayed there until I shut my company down and retired. Now I have more time but less money to work on old cars and trucks, LOL . P S I have a small acreage and I just keep the weeds cut , I'm not much of a farmer. JIM

Slow, Oregons close enough for me as I live down here where the boise river joins in with the snake river, just happen to be on the Idaho side. Now I don't feel quit as lonely, L.O.L.

Good to here from you, Jim!................Unfortunately, I live on the far side of OR, in the west Cascade foothills along the McKenzie river. Pretty far from you, I have spent some time in ID mostly in the McCall area and passed thru plenty of your state, beautiful country.

Hey Dave,I like that Mckenzie river area, we go though there on our trips to the coast sometimes. I will sure be glad when the guys and gals get this site working better,they are hard at it i'm sure. I cant understand why somebody would do a cyber attack on a site like this other than to show they can . Catch you later dave. JIM

Not really. Got a bit of snow here, but it's almost all gone now.

Down here by the snake we got a little rain and a lot of wind but not like it was on the western side of oregon . Today has been better , worked on the old 51 a little bit . I only work on it when I can open the overhead door up and let in some sunshine. I have a electric furnace that heats it up well, but it cost to much to use it now .
