              I have always dreamed of getting in a big combine and spending the whole day harvesting. Our old 12 Ft Gleaner is nothing like what you have. Well I'm 71 already so I guess that won't happen. Love watching you though.

                  Hey zach I'm a farmer in northeast mo and I'm wondering what radios are you using? We currently dont have radios in our machines and at times I wish we did. Maybe could you do a video on them and why you use radios over cell phones? Thanks

                          Water keeps the mud from caking up too bad around the tire treads and it generally isn’t very sticky when there’s water involved. That’s what keeps you from getting stuck as long as you keep the wheels straight and just truck on through it without stopping. Just mud with no water is where problems tend to develop

                            Mud is, obviously, ground that's saturated with water, making it soft, visible water is a result of harder ground

                                  Driving thru water probably helps wash the tires off and doesn't let the mud stick to them which helps with not getting stuck.

                                    I am a farmer, my grandpa owns a dairy farm and my other grandpa has a small hay business. I'd like to take over that hay business and combine grain as well. You have inspired me with all your cool videos to reach my goal. My operation will be no where near your size, but I love the farm life. You are the best actor out there on youtube, keep making videos and I'm ready to watch the next one.

                                            You asked why you get stuck more easily in muddy spots than in spots with water: i think that in spots where is water on the field the ground is very hard/solid and thats why you also don’t get stuck so easily in those spots.🤔

                                              If it holds water it's more compacted than the wet spot that doesn't hold water! It has a bottom! They way it looks fall tillage isn't going to happen there?

                                                  would be interested to hear exactly what adjustments on the separator system (ie. beans are becoming drier) you need to make to correct for blowing the beans out the end.

                                                    I always figured since you can't compress liquids standing water will keep your machine elevated. You definitely feel safer in the water than driving right next to it. Usually...

                                                            Maybe the reason driving through water is better is because water is incompressible?

Often we travel through the farming heartland. We've seen farmers planting and harvesting and got curious about how farming works. That's why I watch and enjoy learning g about your family and farming.

I understand the soil is thin over clay, it could be costly, time consuming and done by errosion, any other reasons? Loved the install of drain tile.

Mud has no firm base or the base is deep enough that you can get totally bogged down because the bottom is deep enough the water cant just sit there.
