Roy, good to see you on the mend!

The wind was brutal here today, lost half of a cedar tree. Good news is it was a tree that was most likely going to need to go for our new patio anyway, so now I have 2 excuses to cut the rest down! Even better news is that my shoulder is a whole lot better than last week. Nowhere near perfect, but useful at least. Definitely going to give PT a go.

Anything new in the world of Rodney?
Sucks about the tree, but at least it was one on the way out. Glad to hear the shoulder has improved!

Good luck, hope it works out this time!

Yesterday I finally found time time to install 4í LED lights in my pole shed. This was long overdue.



Iím surprised at how much light they provide.
I'm also in North West FL, have an L3901, I have those same shop lights in my garage, a 5th wheel, and I'm about to put up an Ag barn just like yours!. Where did you get your barn? I've got a quote from Panhandle Lumber Supply in Chipley so far, but still shopping.

Marianna Truss Co. They are about an hour West of Tallahassee. Very easy to work with.

Yes, I have the original guy reworking the quote to instead do hydro air. I am also having a second place, one I've dealt with before and trust, do a competing quote to see how their pricing and methodology compare. Both of them agreed 100% with your design ideas so thanks again man... much appreciated....

On another note, my original buyers did their follow up inspection today and were satisfied all around. Looks like we are signing the P&S on Friday... Fingers crossed. Before I was scared that we wouldn't sell the house. Now I'm scared that we will! LOL...

That's good news Rodney.
Since you've switched to stimulating the housing market I decided to help the trailer market in your absence. I've been kicking around an enclosed trailer for my traveling when not towing RV, and found a pretty good deal.




Found this deal on a new 2018 US Cargo 6x12, wanted something i could put behind jens fiat if needed. 3,500lb axle, inside wall paneling with d rings, bonded sides, and plus 6" height option for $2,900 plus ttl.
Was really wanting all aluminum, but even decent used ones were asking $4k or so.

That's a nice trailer Chad. When I saw that first pic, I thought you were buying a well used, or scratch and dent trailer, then I realized it's snow - something we don't see often down here - lol

Cool trailer Chad. What's going inside? Speaking of trailers, did you ever put to use the 7k axles you bought from me?

Cool trailer Chad!! My wife gets mad at me every year when we have to buy tags due to having several of them. For years of having only SUVs, that was the only way to move or carry big items. Now that we have four trucks in the yard, it's much easier to get stuff. DAMN, I hope she doesn't see this post

Morning guys!

For hauling the quad, hunting gear when I do my trips to Wisconsin.
The axles are earmarked for my open deck single car trailer (which is different from the one i picked them up with). Haven't broke it well enough yet to move it up on the project list.....

Morning guys!
Michigan trailer plates are permanent. This one will cost me $75 for as long as I own it. Doesn't, however, make up for the raping we take on car insurance.
