Well, one more thing behind me as far as being ready. I got the salt shed crammed full today. I had put in 5 tons about 10 days ago, gave it antoehr 5 tons today. All treated with Magic and ready to use. Plows are ready, I'll mount the undertailgate spreader on the 5500 this weekend. It needs a bearing on one of the feed augers but it's usable as is if I get desperate. As soon as parts get here from CPW I'll get a new plug on the tailgate hopper and THAT will be ready. The 10' Western is still on the bottom of the list, it may be a while before that project sees the light of day. Too many projects, not enough hours in the day right now. I'm all set for help when it snows but right now I'm a one man band and there just doesn't seem to be enough time for everything this year.
