You are welcome Judith, I thought he was one of the best people that Justin featured on his farm tour. I would love to visit with him, but he is so far away.

I do a lot of work with a shovel. I use my backhoe for the big stuff and easy to get to places. But some places are just made to get up close and personel. This is a picture of my path that goes down through my creek bottom and back out again.

Hey Robbie , loving your adventures. Just wanted to mention, as part of your learning experience, (and you may already know this)  always be aware that tow ropes, chains, cables etc., have the ability to break under stress. Or parts of the vehicle being pulled may come loose. Causing the parts and pieces to fly in the direction of the puller. So always protect the person who is pulling something, just in case something comes loose or breaks. For instance Jaqi might have lifted the forks of the tractor a bit to create a "fence" in front of her? Keep up the great work !

And what about these things? Anybody know if these would be toxic. These are actually put into water like sand bags so wouldn't they leach into the waterways that are flooding? Anybody know if there have been any studies on these?

Neck Coolers

So I wonder if these things are toxic too?

I started using these years ago as a way to stay cool and now I have skin cancers and vertigo . I noticed that after many uses, wetting them , then drying out, then rewetting, over and over again, they would get slimy, like the beads were breaking down and slime was coming out on to my skin.  Just wondering if I have poisoned myself?

I stopped using them and went to more of a cloth/chamois type cooling wrap.
