I live in a area surrounded by farmers that put in thousands of acres of crops. Some.of those fields border my family's property. We don't seem to have a problem with big tired Cubs damaging crops. Maybe that is an out west problem? I can say that no farmer has asked me if I minded having toxic pesticides and other chemicals runoff onto my land and drinking water. The point I make with that statement is you can pretty much take anyone's actions and make it look like they are doing something wrong. Yes, respect can be important.
    All I said was Quit landing on other peoples crops. There are plenty of spots to land. I don't know what is hard about that. For most people that would be a given.

    I think the farmer could give them a Carbon Credit.

The ones we visit we are invited into and we only try to land when we won't do any damage. I think Chuck is a city boy and didn't know any better

    Glenn, farmers drive heavy machinery over crops all the time. A good example is wheat and oats, some crop is destroyed during application of herbicides or fertilizer. Also during nitrogen application some corn is destroyed .

    I hope chuck will continue to keep us in the loop with pictures and information on what looks to be a interesting trip.

    By The Owner. Not some random user. I don't get it. I didn't even go as far as saying to stay off other peoples property, I said stay off their crops. It is only common curtesy. You have no right to be there. Maybe you just want to give all us backcountry drivers a bad reputation. This argument is getting ridiculous. I will say it one more time. There are plenty of places for us to play. Please stay off growing crops. Please.

    My last post had nothing to do with you. It was for Glenn.

    As you know Iím traveling so limited internet. I happened to be in norton KS at the time weíre i spend 3-4 weeks hunting every year and not only have permission to land in that field, I had also just had lunch with the owner. Between the 5-6 farmers Iím friends with there is about 50000 acres I am more then welcome to land on. They prefer I land in there wheat or alpha fields and enjoy me flying around having fun.
    I have a farm in Ga we put out nitrogen with a tractor so pretty sure my tundra tires didnít hurt the 50í of field we used.
    Thanks for your concern

    Keep an eye on your pod hinge where it is glued. Mine started to separate and I put in a row of rivets. I noticed it when I pulled my skis last month and think the cold may have been the cause.

    I like the forward fuel section.
    Thatís the plan, be great to meet you.
