Home work!!

My wife and I spent the weekend putting new underpinning on the front of the house. The old underpinning was over 20 years old and had seen better days. We had to tear out all the old and install a new frame and siding. all I have left to do is build an access door. All the sore muscles are worth it to have it done in 1 weekend. Now I can go tractor pulling and not have to worry about working on the house!

Tractor Pulling April 10 & 11

I went tractor pulling this past weekend. I pulled at the Sunny Plains Antique Tractor Association at St Matthews SC . There were about 60 tractors there on Saturday and 30 on Sunday. The weather was beautiful and the track was loose and had most of us scratching our heads to figure out how to get our tractors to hook and pull. Normally I run 600 lbs on the front weight bracket to hold the front end down. It only took 100 lbs to hold the front end down Saturday and Sunday. So it was definitely a looser track than we had seen at previous pulls. I had made some changes in the carb of Pa's tractor and it increased his HP just a little and we finally figured out he needed to pull heavier classes where his tires could hook up and pull instead of spinning.
Kenny, the track was better on Sunday!!
All in all it was a good weekend!
