My name is Travis Alphin I am 26 married 4 years and have a 15 month old girl .Who loves sitting on the cub. I grew up on a small cattle farm along with hogs ,chickens ,dogs and the neighborhood cat in northeasten ARK. I have been around tractors and equipment all my life as my dad builds ,buys and sells it.

I work on the Mississippi river for a tow boat company my job includes everything from diesel mechanics (16-645 EMD's also used in trains ) electrical, plumbing , hydraulics , air controls etc. If its broke i gotta fix it.

I got my first tractor (H farmall) 5 years ago now I have a M and the newest a CUB . I like to make them run good and look better I use them on my 30 acres. My job and working on tractors kinda go to gether in the way things work and the fact they were built before I was born. When I learn how to I'll post some picures of the tractors and maybe a engine on the boat .

ONE last thing I must say is that this board and the people on it are top notch in everyway and the fact that people have get togethers I never saw that at the other board I visted for 4 years. I'll look in overthere ,but theres no comparison in the two. :!: THANKS GUYS :!: :D :!:
