Don’t know Jim other than he is a friend of my daughter and son-inlaw and farms near Dalum SE of Drumheller, Alberta.
Someone want to explain to me how it got in manifold?!
Although the OP was fake I still believe you M. 😜Bull snake by the size
Burn the drill to the ground
Used to work by the River by Jenner AB. Each year I would have a snake scare. Never got bit Ratters are more scared of you then you are of them.
Spring time was the worse’s when they came out of their dens and we’re moving around.
Still remember sticking my head in an enclosed box looking to shut off heaters from winter operations. Looked to the left and there was a Rattler curled up 3 feet away from me……the heater stayed on the whole summer
Only good thing was area was sour so the little buggers would not go into the process buildings.
Still shared ****less of them
No expert but for 4.5 I worked around them. Bull snakes did not bother me. I had a 7 foot BS living at my 13-5 gas plant. He was always by the old office sunning himselfAlthough the OP was fake I still believe you M. 😜
Very true. Judging by the number of gophers these days, rattlesnake population is in severe decline. I see maybe one a year. Plus people still actively kill them. We're not all brave like my neighbor (she's nearly 80) who puts a five gallon bucket over them and with a piece of plywood scoops them up and takes them out of her yard into the far fields and lets them go.Old saying was if there’s gophers there’s no snakes and vise-versa.
Agree, but how many would put up with the vastly higher cost?Good idea on the hose, why aren’t we using abrasive material rubber hose (pneumatic bulker type, cement etc) instead of this junk white plastic.
Bourgault used that hose for a few years but what would happen is it would wear out on the inside and chunks would peel over and block the hose before it would wear through. I’m sure it was also a lot more expensive also.Good idea on the hose, why aren’t we using abrasive material rubber hose (pneumatic bulker type, cement etc) instead of this junk white plastic.
I'd pay twice the price for twice the lifespan in a heartbeat. Doing all 2.5 inch distribution hoses and seed/fert hoses once every 2-3 years is getting old, and really wasteful.Agree, but how many would put up with the vastly higher cost?
