Flight Across the Snow

With the sun shining and winter only serving as a reminder as to how much more snow we are able to receive, I thought it would be fun to post a video of the DJI Phantom 3 drone lightly gliding across its glimmering beauty. As far as the experience is concerned, this comes as close to cruising across the fields on a snowmobile as I can get. The film was shot around the first of February, 2016.

Pushing Snow with Farm King and JD 4230

This year I purchased a snow blower to help keep the barnyard cleaned out.  The snow slides on the side of the barn to the point where it can’t slide anymore (builds up too much).  SO, with the snow blower I am able to keep it pushed out better.  It also lets me use the warmth of a cab tractor to push snow.

This video is a time lapse that I took with the GoPro. It’s not the greatest video because it got a lot of moisture over the outer housing, and I probably shouldn’t have made it record it so fast… But, it is still kind of cool to watch anyway.

October Through December 2012 Photo Journal

I finally got around to finishing the photo journal 2012.  As you may notice, there are many photos of me feeding cattle.  That’s because with the days as short as they were, my schedule basically consisted of going to work, coming home and feeding the cows, then getting home just in time for it to get dark.

1939 John Deere A and Spring Baby Calves

Here’s a video that was taken up at the calves.  This video is similar to the previous post, except it has more of the calves and shows the tractor stationary.

Our beef cattle calf in the spring, and we feed them during the summer on the range, so our beef is only Alfalfa and grass/range fed (organic).

 

1939 John Deere A Winter Drive

Driving around the 1939 John Deere A after doing some work on it throughout the winter. We replaced the radiator core, muffler, and rebuilt carburator. This is the same tractor that I made the time lapse video reassembly of.  It’s amazing how much work you end up doing any time you decide to tear down into one of these things.  You go to fix one thing, and find that there are two more things that need to fix.

Playing on the snowmobiles up Deer Creek

Since we had Monday off for Presidents Day, I took the opportunity to go on a quick ride up Deer Creek.  The snow was pretty nice and it is close enough to home that it allowed the dogs to come and have a good time too. The video here shows me on my 2008 800 Polaris Dragon with a 163 track.  The snow has been a little late coming this year, but the past few storms have seemed to be an attempt to make up for it.
