I was making a joke. You see daughter and her three children came back to live with us! I had to go rent a house for her to move out! Now her oldest is with us and her three children are now with us! Both got crapped husbands, this is and why both have moved in with us! :ROFLMAO:

I've plowed 4-5 times now, takes me about 1.5 hours to do the driveway and 1/4 mile section prior to a steep hill.

Starting to get the hang of this and figuring out what else I need. Definitely snow chains, just don't have the budget right now. Also need some wing extensions on the front to push the edges out a bit further. Next year I'll get some beet juice in the tires for extra weight.

7' hydraulic blade on the front and a 6' offset rear blade.

This tractor is going to be super handy year round.

Finally got the rest of the gang up to Montana. Still have a few more hurdles, but its nice that we're making progress. COVID-19 has definitely made things more interesting and challenging. I opted to stay away from Colorado, I25 is a frustrating stretch of road from Pueblo to Cheyenne.

We drove up to McCook, Nebraska the first leg. Was roughly 11 hours of driving, and a few stops for fuel, restroom, food, and stretching the legs. We had breakfast at Fuller Family Restaurant in McCook on Monday morning, where 5 or 6 pieces of bacon is the norm as a side. The owner has a massive collection of cookie jars on display, over 3000.

The 2nd leg of the journey took us to Billings which was another 11 hour drive. We stayed with family for the night and the dogs got to stretch the legs in a fenced backyard, this was definitely needed.

The final stretch was roughly 5 hours. Had some breakfast at Stella's Kitchen in downtown Billings. On the way outta town we dropped off the car hauler off which made it a bit easier to drive the passes.

Picture below is from the cookie jar collection where 3 of the 4 walls looked like this.

Congrats @planomateo for getting the family to Montana. I know that helps to have everyone in one location. My best to all of you as you go forward. When things straighten out with this COVID-19 and our own situation so we can travel again, we'll plan a restaurant meet and eat together when we're up that way.
