  Selling prices for real estate around here had $$$ flashing in my eyes for our farm but...  If we did that and paid the fees and taxes associated with the sale and then had to buy a place to live in this inflated market. We wouldn't be any farther ahead.
  My old 753 Bobcat is getting pretty long in the tooth and I'm considering getting rid of it while it's still worth something.  There's a Kubota R420 loader at an upcoming local auction but with prices inflated as they are it'll probably bring more than I'm willing to pay.

I need a diesel truck. I dont want new but used prices are just stupid. No way Im paying more for a 10yr old truck than it sold for new. And new trucks just arent there. But I figure with diesel prices going the way they are, interest rates going up, and manufacturers finally starting to fill some orders, in another 12 months or so there will be all kinds of used ones being unloaded. Ive made it this far. Trusty rusty is just going to have to hold it together another 12 months.

Yeah I was thinking about upgrading to a fresher diesel this year for pulling the camper. Not at these prices. I'm hoping for the kind of market correction where everyone else is broke but I still have money, haha.

Ive just been going around the farm looking for stuff I havent used in years, and dragging it out of the weeds and selling it.  

Im about to start collecting all the scrap metal I have, many, many tons at least, and dragging it off to the salvage place, but I dont know what steel is getting these days.  

I have an old 4 wheel hay wagon going out next, I dont have any cows anymore, so dont  need it.  Ive got an extra boat thats heading out, then an old fertilizer sprayer, stuff like that.  
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyre burned, and you cant fix them.  So dont burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.

Out here at Schnitzer, heavy iron prepared (less than 4' in length) gets anywhere from $240 to $290/ton.  Unprepared is usually $10-$20 less/ton.  The thin stuff they call tin is in the $160-$190/ton range.  When waiting to weigh out or cash out, I see a lot of "yard art" being hauled in.  Sad to see some really vintage tractors heading off to China.

Now Mr. Green, with a statement like that I'm getting the impression your cruising for the big "D".
For your sake I hope she has a very good sense of humor.
