    Corn is comin off full swing up here guys. Combines everywhere! must look like a bees nest from up high hehe

    We hadnt really hit full tilt mode until now, beans are easy peasy compared to hauling corn coming off at 5 ton. Its go time!

    Just a reminder to be safe out there for the remainder of the harvest season. Keep the shiny side up on the end dumps and always rember that when you plug the combine, nobody in the cab if someones gotta crawl in.

    Just wanted to wish you guys a very merry Christmas ... and happy haulin' to the guys with the end dumps that are on snow duty this winter.

    Looks like it's gonna be a long one for some of us. I've already been under the blower twice this year on the same beats and we're already hitting chains and straps in the windrows so I guess some of the guys are already sick of haulin' the white caca lol

    Snow dumps up here are going to be jammed pretty good this year :)

    Hi everyone. I'm back pulling hoppers a good bit. Riceland company driver hauling around buildings. I like it. I transferred out of grading and into a building. I'm trucking a good bit though. A nice change. I hope everyone's well.

    Haven't heard from you in a long time cowdoc. Still hauling this winter which is nice. Last year didn't do much in winter but then we didn't have very good crops either.

    Rice crop was off as well. We took in 8 mil bu green compared to 11.1 mil. the year before. High corn prices plus a cold and wet spring hurt our acreage. Dry rice is coming in strong now but it always does after the first of the year. We'll see how long it lasts. One of our yard trucks is a 67 Mack 237 and 5 sp.. First truck I ever drove was a 68 R600 speced the same. Brings back memories.
