We all on this site love tractors. I am not just a collector, but also a farmer and so the hobby of collecting tractors is beneficial in more ways than one. Problem is, sometimes a hobby gets out of hand. I'm in the process of moving and have enough tractors, implements, and other related items to haul. You've heard how it is possible to have too much of a good thing.

As much as I love tractors, the hauling of heavy tractors is not fun, when there are so many.

Here I am in the middle of moving and people are contacting me to come haul off their tractors for free.:laugh: Strange timing. A guy with a Ford diesel tractor just asked if I wanted his. Why did they wait until now to contact me?:empathy:

Can there really be too much of a good thing? :laugh:

Is your move very far? Your area is like mine, and growing faster than I really like. Before you know it, big city civilization will invade. :thumbsdown:

It's not out of hand until the purchase of a semi and a loboy seems completely reasonable. When that happens, call me because I've been thinking about it too! :laugh:

Like farmgirl said, how far are you going with everything?

Yip, the quick growth of the area is one thing I strongly dislike. Not just the growth, but partly the political aspects that are helping to fuel it. Some people have lost their jobs mainly due to their political affiliations. It's getting pretty ugly. And, of course there are the crime stats as well. Some in the know that have worked as undercover narcotics officers have warned top city and county leaders in more than one location about how much influence the drug cartels have in the area, but the leaders turn their backs. Guess they won't care until it lands in their backyards or affects their pay. It may be bad for business to tell investors what all is going on behind the scenes, but it doesn't make it go away. Things are going downhill, IMHO. As far as how far I'm moving, see reply below.

Approximately 1,500 miles or so. Having to leave some things behind for now. It's been difficult making major decisions like this, but it has to be done. One things for sure, I am not well liked by certain criminals here.:laugh:

WOW! That is some move! You are liked by us country folk, so it is OK to not be liked by criminals. Hope you didn't make them too mad, though. :hornets:

Texas may be big; but not 1,500 miles big, which puts you out of state by a large margin. I can only guess you are heading to Wyoming, Montana, maybe Idaho, or North Dakota. 1,500 miles puts you past Colorado, which you wouldn't like as we become more like California every day.

Good luck with your move and don't be a stranger once you get settled in.

Taking everything to Montana? Best of luck! :thumbup1gif:

I hope to be making that trip myself in the next year or so. Just hunting for the right job opportunity.
Thanks and I'll be praying for things to work out for you and the wife.

Thank you. As far as the criminals go, they usually just find another place and location to do their thing.

Thank you. When I get caught up on things, I'll spend some more time in Colorado seeing the sights. Never got to fish or hunt there. Will give you a buzz when I'm in the area.
