How long have you been a member of I’ve been on TBN for about a year. I found it through google searches, while looking for homemade land planes I believe.

What do you like best about
I love the wealth of knowledge and eveyone’s willingness to share what they know.

What type of tractor do you own? No tractor yet, but I’ve got a jacked up Jeep that I use mostly as a tractor.

Tell us about your property: We have 4.2 acres on a cul-de-sac that borders on a couple hundred acres of water commission land, a 2,600 sq. ft. home that I designed with an attached single car garage that I use as my workshop, and a 16X16’ shed for storage. Someday, I hope to build a separate garage for a workshop so mama can park her car in the attached.

Tell us about your vehicles: I own a 2003 Jeep TJ, 2005 Cobalt (daily driver), ’97 Tracker (poor man’s side by side), military style off-road dump trailer, and a 6.5 hp go kart to be converted to off-road.

Do you have any pets? Yes, I have two cats: Sylvester and Tweety.

What sort of tools, attachments or equipment do you use with your Jeep on a regular basis?
Offroad dump trailer, Fisher plow, 12Klb. Warn Winch,

What do you mainly use your Jeep for? I use the Jeep mostly to plow the driveway and tow the dump trailer. Sometimes I use it to skid logs, or I’ll use the winch to remove stumps.

What sort of terrain is common in your area?
Rocky at my place! If I wanted to plant a garden, I’d have to truck the soil in (LOL).

What sort of trees and vegetation are common in your area?
Mostly spruce, but some fir, pine, maple, birch, and rarely oak.
