Tom, I just checked my garden soil. While it isn't "sticky" muddy, I wouldn't want to plow in it... Seeing that Art hasn't posted, I'm guessing he decided to go plow.

Don't feel too bad Kraig. I haven't even tried to get anything started or dig my trailer out of storage yet, 45 and cloudy just isn't much motivation. So I didn't got either.

Hey guy,we missed you!! It actually turned into a pretty good day. We didn't get there til about 1130, and the field was in great condition. Wasn't that much rain, corn stalks didn't bother hardly at all. And of course left camera at home --- darn it. But Vince and Art took lots of pics, so I know some will be posted.
A big THANKs to the FFA for hosting this, just needed more little plows, the "big" guys plowed more than we did. Ron

Yes, the day started out wet, but Ron is right, it was a great event. The FFA kids did a great job as usual. Sorry you couldn't be there!

Here are a few highlights...

Thank you Art for letting us know about this Plow Day and thanks you to the Osceola FFA for putting on a wonderful event!

Tomorrow I'll upload my pics from my camera.

And I'm guessing there will be NO pictures of me plowing backwards... Seems I donated 2 front suitcase weights to the plowed field, plowed my furrow backwards for a 100 or so feet and did not find them - I was wondering if there'd be a pic of this.

Vincent, I usually don't give opinions that weren't asked for "but" did you consider painting the grill white and the hood red, I have always thought one of the best looking tractors out there was the 1206. You could tell one of them at a mile.

Nice pics guys, looks like a good time. Wish I could have made it but with the holiday it just didn't allow the time.

Vince & Art, thanks for the pics. I thought about attending, but we had so much cold weather and water around here, I couldn't believe it would be dry enough to plow over there. Maybe next year...

Having a little withdrawl symptoms, thinking about Rockford, IA this time of year...
