Wow!!

Thanks for all the response everyone. I really like the forum. I'll be silent for a while now and read like crazy.

Cant leave out Squirt.

He's part pekingese and Chihuahua

Hmm... I'm certainly not an old farm boy, but I thought that rule didn't apply if you named it after food? (ie. naming a chicken, drumstick) ;)

Mark and Deborah, welcome.
My wife Jan was in the Navy for 6 yrs, she was a radioman in anti sub warfare. We are in mid TN and bought our 2.75 acre place 2yrs ago for the same reason. I am out with health probs. and needed something to keep me busy. that is an understatement.

You guys should consider planning to attend one of our fests soon. Kodiak is having one in early Oct. in Ga., and I am having one here in Nov. You don't need to bring a cub to be welcome. I have had mine since January, and absolutely love it.

Enjoy.

Hey Mark, you can't lose up there. You have at least three beautiful views to wake up to each day, lovely wife, beautiful view from all directions, and a nice cub to boot. Some folks are just lucky, I guess. Pete, really is a beautiful place! ! !

Welcome Mark,
As many have said you are in the right place if you need any help with the cub. You and your wife have a beautiful place there. If time permits on October 3rd & 4th come on down for the Stonethrow Cubfest in Gillsville Ga. Were near Gainesville which you may be familar with. You don't have to bring a Cub but your more than welcome to. More info to come very soon in the Announcements section.

I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

I was wondering if old T-bone was gonna end up as one on his plate. At least I don't think, or hope, you meant Squirt.

Welcome Mark! You're gonna find that your tractor and farming questions will recieve the answers you need to move in the right direction.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Welcome to the Forum! I'm not new to gardening, but this is my first tractor. I'm so glad to have found a classic than can also be a real working 'steel horse' that puts food on the table. Pretty important stuff these days as more people are starting to re-understand given the current situation with gas prices.

I crushed a vertebrate in my back in 1982 and it has been a sloooow road to recovery. I've finally gotton to the point where I can do hard work, and the hard work is helping me overcome my pain problem. I'm almost inclined to name my Cub "Physical Therapy" - because that's exactly what it is - with really great benefits! What exercise machine can boast these credentials?

But always be careful, take your time and use leverage to your benefit after thoughtful consideration. Always remember that if you hurt yourself, you'll be missing that quality seat time!

You'll find a good community here that is always available to help you with repair/maintenance/motovational advice.

Welcome Mark. I'm still a rookie at these cubs. Without this forum, I might have parted with mine. But not now. They are too much fun. I was born and rasied outside of Richmond, and got some friends out in Danville, Crewe and Clifton Forge. If you got any questions, ask someone else. I still got a question list a mile long. Have fun.

Hi Mark and Deborah and welcome to a great forum.

By the way, did you read the rule (fine print) that states new member with a steer named T-Bone hosts the BBQ?? :wink: :wink: :wink:

From one cub newbie (and forum newbie) to another, hi Mark and welcome. You're right, we have a lot of reading to do here and the more I read the more I wish I had found this forum before I even thought about buying a tractor. I've found several things I need to do to make my tractor right (replace a rubber gas line being the first thing!).

Really nice bunch of gals and guys here, I think we're gonna like it here.

Oh and I live down the road a ways from you, just the other side of Reidsville, NC.
