So the pre-game activities on the farm have begun and we are putting the final touches of getting the equipment ready to head to down to the early fields on our Tammany farm, which is 37 miles away from our main shop and equates to about an hour drive at 60 mph, but flagging equipment is usually more like a 2 1/2 hour drive as the average speed is 15-20 mph as tractors aren't built for speed, so it is slow going.
Moving equipment requires planning and before we can head to the Tammany Farm, a flat tire is discovered and needs to be fixed.
