Leaving Sunday afternoon to get Big John.
Wichita is one of the overnights for which I don't have a Family visit planned - yet. I have found a motel, so no problem there, but sure would like to have someone to talked to while I am there! Will be there Tuesday night, April 22. Or join me for breakfast the next morning.
Pausing in Emporia, KS for a visit as well.
After leaving Jay's I will be heading back across OK. Looking for a non-motel overnight in the western end of the state for Friday, April 25.
I am really concerned with security for Big John and Bruiser overnight. Yeah, everything will be locked and covered, but that only keep lazy brooks and honest people honest. Really spooked by a guy's comment in a tractor forum on having his purchase go missing overnight at a motel. All other overnights are covered.
I am excited about getting Big John and I am going a long way to do it. I'll be more excited when I get back and use it build Five Talents.
Teaser: also have a line on a micro backhoe. Plan to have the bucket removable or convertible to lift stuff and carry it - like 12' 4x6's. Stay tuned!
Yep, lots of money, but occasional labor is also expensive and whole lot less reliable!
