Hi guys!
Bought a '47 cub recently and am having a blast with it and found this great forum. Seems like a lot of good folks who really care.
Just a bit about me:
I'm 33 with a good wife, 4 kids (3 boys and a girl) ages 5-11.
We've got a small farm of 35 acres with 4-H animals and a big garden.
I'm just across the road from my uncle's farm that I grew up working on.
I've got a set of the front mounted cultivators for my cub, and am looking into building a small (maybe 5x9') hay wagon for the kids to haul brush etc with.

Looking forward to getting some good advice and meeting some nice folks here.

My wife keeps a blog about our family going here:

Welcome to the forum. You'll find all the info you need for a Cub right here. You have a great lookin' family and the boys sure looked like they enjoyed playing with that tree. I see you are about 3 1/2 hour from me. Mark June 1 and 2 on your calendar and plan to attend the Barnyard Bash. You will meet many of the forum members as well as learn a lot about Cubs.
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. Yes, it does look like the boys really were having fun with the tree. And a personal zip line no less!!!

Come on over to Barnyard's in June, bring the family and you will have a great time.

Welcome aboard. You are about 4 hours from me. With Docfest rapidly approaching in April, you may want to consider it. Get to a cubfest near you soon, bring the family, as they are a family event.
