Thanks for the safety reminder Dan. I remember my grandmother telling me about the day my grandfather was late for dinner. She sent my two uncles (Mom’s younger brothers) out to the field to see what was keeping him. A small storm had passed through earlier and they figured he was trying to finish the field for the day.

When they got to the field they saw his truck along the road and the tractor out in the field. They headed for the tractor and about half way they found Grandpa. They think he had gotten off the tractor during the storm and headed for shelter in the truck. Lightening had cut into his shoulder and exited out his hip on the opposite side.

I never met either of my grandfathers. Both were killed in farm related incidents before I was born. Never take for granted you are safe. It only takes a split second for something to go wrong.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
