I just saw that guy on the deere. I am north bound on 65 out of mobile and he blew past me, and I'm running about 75. The only reason I saw him cause the DW noticed his deck was set so low for this road. But he had his deere headlights on for safety.

Those of us that worked for IH always said "Nothing runs like a Deere or smells like a John."

To see the real definition of "overloaded," one only needs to visit southeast Asia! (I saw stuff like this daily in the Philippines!)

I legit forgot it was back there as I went to get on the highway. Fortunately, I did remember about when I hit 60mph.

I told my wife that later and she laughed as she asked me if it was because the trailer took flight?!
