When you need a bigger tractor!

Every once in awhile,  I  wish I had friends out here. Or maybe just a bigger tractor.

A/c.  Nice.
I remember buying one from Fabr, brought to dunes we all had it on installed in 30 min.
You can keep your CHANGE, I'd like to keep my DOLLAR.

 I had to change one out at the dunes as well. Wasn't a soul around to help either. Where there is a will there is a way for sure.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

I found the will and way. In the form of hard corn liquor! Oh, and I dug my Superman cape out of the closet. There won't be any dune trips this summer traveling with pets, without an air conditioner. And this one has a heat pump, also. So this fall/winter should be covered. Heck, I might even bring the chickens.

That's nice, you will sleep much better, hot or cold.  I just ordered a new 2 ton mini split for my shop with heat pump.  My old window A/C unit is getting tired and is VERY inefficient  compared to the 20.5 SEER rating of the mini.

The best I know right now, for the dyno, is July. Hoping early July!

Closest kin is north of Wichita.  And he(Jonathon) would drive here in a heartbeat, for a 5 minute job, in the middle of the night. On a Tuesday.  I think you get what I mean! Good kid. But definitely crazy.
