yes its a bad time of the year, the other part of year i dont like is autumn time when all the leaves decide to fall off the trees. I think they are linked, when you slide on the leaves you go slutch, this sends as subliminal message to the farmers to put more slutch on and make the trees bigger

This is slutch a confusing topic.

What we worry about here in New jersey is the tons of ice melt and sand on the roads. I accumulates exactly where a bikes path is , as well as right in the center of 4 way intersections. If not sand then you have crumpled asphalt fron the salt and plows.
Every corner is a nightmare.

Hey here did I hear a rant from one of the farm animals?:headbanger: What are you trying to do, Outlaw my honey wagon? If it wasn't for me you would not have the sweet smell of Spring as you venture out on your first runs after a long winter.:action:

Ahhhh! The sweet smell of fresh country air. Nothing smells better than my hog pen after a good rain.:cheeky1:

Show some love for us farmers:3sum:

keep on Winging:bat:

I don't particularly love any farmers, but what they grow is another story...:cooldevil:pig farms aren't where I want to live but how could I live without bacon, pork chops, sausage, ham and all that lovely stuff. Drove by a bunch of big feed lots today, all that stink just reminded me of T-bones and rib steaks.

Damn, it's hell being an omnivore.:cheeky1:

I love farmers; but I sure don't have the guts to be one! If you own or work a farm, you are in prison, sure.....! You are chained to the soil......

I have a brother-in-law that farms hay. He worries about rain like a hen-pecked husband worries about what his wife is thinking.... If he cuts it at the wrong time, and then it rains, he can sit in his window and watch his dollars float off down his ditches! I told him he didn't really need to bea farmer. For a slight fee, I could come over and kick him in the groin two or three times a year! Be simpler! Same result!

:cheeky1:

I had a surrogate father once: he was a hay farmer and a great mountaineer, and he and his brother invented the modern climbing snowshoe..... great, wise, and funny man. One time a bunch of us were out snowshoing in the winter mountains. Some of us were talking about what we'd do if we ever won the new Washington State Lottery.....

"Gene," I asked my surrogate father. "What would you do if you won $10 million in the lottery?"

He thought for a moment. "Well," he said. "I'd probably just keep on farmin' hay until it was all gone!"

:cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

I loved that man! God rest his soul........

Sounds almost as bad as following a dump truck full of gravel!

I know, we need you truckers out there and I appreciate most of you and the work you do, but, God love ya, those of you who haul dirt, gravel or other substances and don't take care to properly secure your load or ensure that your rig will carry the load w/o shedding it all along your journey, well...something just ain't right about that (No offense intendedto the manyresponsible truckers out there).

There...I said my peace.

Instead of wastingthe time and effort that you put into your rant,why not just phone the local Police and/or the Highways Department of your local Council. You don't need to take a photo,you just need to state the location of the offending mud. The Council has a legal obligation to do something about it.

Farmers,along with everyone else,are liable,under The Highways Act 1980,Section 137 and 148,for any mud or other debri that they leave behind.

That said,if you ride/drive on rural roads,its reasonable to expect to come across some mud!

I've lost count of the amount of times that I've called the Police/Highways Dept,to report mud,diesel etc,etc,(on 3 occassions in my area alone,3 farmers were successfully prosecuted as a direct result my complaints)but,I'll keep on doing it,and I urge everyone else to do the same.It could save someone's life.I guess some would just rather rant than do something positive.

I don't suppose many Highway Dept bods frequent this forum very often!

Oh,and before anyone asks;I am the son of a farmer,lived in the sticks all my life. Farmers have my utmost respect,except when they leave mud on the road that puts my,and others,life in danger.
