:applause::applause: OMG! That's so old school! I love it!

Baled a few in my day too! Mostly to help my girlfriend and her family. Never made a dime!

Ate pretty good tho....
Back in the day,man!! Not much else to do to make money in a farming community :laugh2:
Rough couple of summers,man. Baling for Dad,who paid me with food and then baling with neighboring families. Damn good days,brother!!

Yeah it was!

How the farms I worked on looked in case you haven't been around here...

I’m not sure how close y’all are to Ft. Drum,but,did my cold weather training there.....kinda looks familiar.

Some pics of out front and back of the homestead here. I had planned on retiring in Panama,but,well,home is where the heart is.

I did cold weather training there too in the 80's from Ft Lewis, WA.

I'm almost 200 miles east from Ft Drum. South of Albany.

Weather is similar, but we have the Berkshire mountains behind us...

Nice spread there, Tardoggy!

Looks a bit like that Schecter bridge someone posted up a while back...

Deetz here:

The more I look at the design, and how sloppy my Nashville is, the more I think I might need one of these...

EDIT: Same one! :facepalm: Hello again, Sluggo! :cheers:
Greatings Darrell, good memory. It is a Schecter, someone had posted an ebay listing of one just like it.

I associate Norlins with working class musicians. No blueblood vintage prestige, more practical design tweaks and an overall philosophy "do what you can to make it work."
