Got a call from a friend tonight asking me how bad of wreck it was. Huh? I didn't hear about any wreck.
Turns out some friends of mine son in law rolled their John Deere 9600 combine down a coulee. It rolled over 4 times. This guy is very very lucky to be alive.
I was at this guy's wedding just a couple of years ago and at their daughters baby shower this spring.
I wouldn't blame him if he never gets back in another combine.

That's quite a trick! Some insurance company is weeping.

Coulee is a ravine or water run. Some are deep, some aren't much more than a dip in the ground.

It must have been quite a coulee for him to roll it 4 times!!! He's very lucky!!

Very lucky. That is one reason I will not hay or harrow our fields . I am scared to death of rolling , we are really hilly as well.

The largest hill around here is a big antbed....

When going to Tennessee to see my son, I see the cows grazing on the sides of the mountains and think that I wouldn't ever get on that with a tractor. Some of those brave souls however, are cutting and baling hay on them hills. I often wonder how they keep the bales from taking off and rolling away from them.
