Fun in the snow

Recommended Posts

Finally!!! About 6 inches of snow to play in!  Got out and ended up blowing about 3 blocks of Sully sidewalks and several driveways.  Had to unzip the coat after a bit, got nice and toasty in the cab!  Wife got a few pics as I did out small driveway before heading down the street.

ONLY on this site can a guy blowing snow say he is having "FUN" .   Seeing as I don't have a tractor mounted blower I had my fun on my Honda ATV with the high lift blade. Though I was NOT as warm as Steve was it was fun all the same!

Well, I never claimed that I wasn’t a bit crazy!!  Honestly tho, I was born and raised in Upper Michigan and I have always liked playing in the snow, only the toys have changed a bit over the years. Went from sleds to plowing with an AC wd on the farm, snowmobiles, big trucks, and now Simplicity and Allis garden tractors.  All fun!!

Amazing difference - you have fun for hours without your extremities getting cold.

Continue to enjoy.

Your new name should be yooper-steve-wi-ia!

That's okay though. I have friends in the UP that I always tease that they are really Wisconsinites. Josh & I have even "Badgered" about the UP on this site.

WI had their chance at it.

Thought about changing my name here but figured that would be even more confusing.  

Over the years there was talk of trying to make the U P part of Wisconsin, and also of becoming a separate state, like state of Superior.  Neither will probably happen tho.

We are hoping we are done moving now so maybe will change name to Steve-ia down the road.

Oh yeah, pasties!  We make our own and love them.  One thing we miss here in Iowa are those great perch fries from both the UP and Wisconsin.  No perch in Iowa!

Gotta go to south Dekota for the GIANT perch.

Do you use rutabaga in your Pasties? Just curious

No, wife is not a big rutababa fan so we use potatoes.  I always liked the ones with half and half between the two, and our favorites were from either Colonel K's in Menominee Michigan, or Grammy's Pasties in Escanaba.  Haven't been to either one in a long time so not sure if they still are in business.

My father in law used to go fishing on little bay de noc between Escanaba and Gladstone Michigan. He had a spot where he didn't catch alot of perch, but the ones he did catch were all 10 -13 inch or even bigger.  Excellent eating!!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
