    So Neil was not at the shop when I purchased the cultivator, I asked Liam three different times if he was sure this would go with the Massy 7700 I was getting, it looked a little big. Liam said aye three times, but I was a little unsure still, but I had work to do and so I did not want to wait till the next day when I could talk to Neil. Sure Neil was only the mechanic there but so far he has steered me right and I was willing to take his advice, now I have taken this cultivator up to the island to start my work at the main farm. I get all the way there and get into the cow field and drop the cultivator and my tractor will hardly pull it, so I run it a bit and realize that Liam steered me wrong and I have to go clear back to the shop and waste more time with that fool. I decide to stop by the house and ask Thomas’ advice and he lets me know that Liam is a bit of a langer and only works there since it is his uncles shop, I got the Kuhn DC 401 due to how it was compact and would fit well around the town and on the ferry, I cant go to long or some turns and the ferry are out of the question. Thomas said that there are too many rocks in the ground to go with a single row like that, and that a tiller style will catch and that a disc style will roll over the rocks and can be filed and hammered into shape later. Thomas called up Neil and asked if he could help even if it was his day off, Neil said he has one he had just made up himself he would sell for cheap, he said just to head over to his place not far from the shop and pick it up and I could bring him cash later for it. So even though I am no dwarf nor do I work in a mine the high ho song was in my head as I drove off, sitting there on a few old pallets was my new cultivator Neil even showed me how to stick the pallets in the frame so I could sit it down anytime I wanted. Back to the farm with my set up I go hoping to make up lost ground and with it being a slight rain I hope to not get stuck. I got a good change in the weather a little after noon and made good progress on the cultivation of the main farm, with the cow pasture done and ready to seed in grass I went on to the open area to the east of the farm yard just south of the green houses, Rathlin Island town committee also gave me the whole run of the main farm but not the farm house as that was still property of a family who had items in there of old family heritage. That means that those green houses are mine to use as I would like. Now to find some manure and a water tank for a good price, I will contact the animal shop and see if they have any manure I can buy off of them. On a completley different note I bought a pony with a cart to help bring stuff around the farm, when I used the internet to face time my family my children were super excited that we owned a pony, my oldest kept screaming that she wanted a pony all her life, she is four!!! Planting of grass will come soon, as well have the need to get that wood chipper back and find some wood to chip up for money.

    I have noticed that we as a more mature players don't worry about more brands. I think that the chase for real manufacturers have pushed the standard game towards a equipment simulator and not a farm simulator.

    Mine would be the following; 1) Better multiplayer networking, the way the game works in multiplayer is terrible 2) Seasons 3) better fertilisation/soil mod 4) Buy and sell fields 5) Used vehicles 6) Dynamic ground 7) More realistic game physics 8) Please stop the rain inside my barns 9) Sort the traffic out, cars do not have a greater mass than my 40 ton tractor trailer unit 10) More realistic economy for all aspects of the game Really don't care that much about brands, I would rather Giants spent the money on hiring more developers to improve the game play than waste money on brand licences.

    So, funny story of how my farming career started, it all started with looking into my ancestry. I got on an ancestry site knowing that my mother's father's family came from Ireland, probably-ish based on the last name of McKee. After several months I have still only reached 1859 with the birth of my grandfather's grandfather's father, confusing I know, that if 5 generations before me and still only in Illinois, USA. For all I know I could be Scottish and would not even know the difference. Back to farming though, with the first part being truth and little of it I have decided to make up a story to go along with my game, I love the Rathlin Island map and have started playing it recently and have not made it more than three days into spring. So here we go!!!! I finally received an email back after months of searching and this one guy had all sorts of information on my five generations ago. Long story short he lived on Rathlin Island and had a big book of family history, I called him up and talked with him for several hours about this and that and all such matters. He was an old farmer there on the island and through extremely bad events had lost both of his sons some twenty years prior and would have no one to continue the work. Most of the work he did for the island government itself, mowing road edged and keeping of grounds, a bit of forestry was done in there as well and then just helping locals maintain their crops and fields. In his older age has had a few health problems and has been unable to do some of the upkeep, and because of such has lost much of the equipment he had to be able to live. Talking to Thomas about this whole situation got me wondering what it would be like to be in Ireland, it may not be the land of my father to son traced back to the motherland origins, but my Grandpa was a very good man and I loved him while my dad’s father was a cruel man who died when my dad was still just a teenager. This side of my family tree meant more to me that the last name I had now. Ok, I have some crazy ideas I need to go have a talk with my wife and see how bad she is going to scream when I mention maybe going to Ireland to work.

    Howdy Ya'all! I wanted to let you all know I just started a new multiplayer. This is not an official PCSG multiplayer, hence the reason I posted this under announcements and not pcsg multiplayer. You can find my multiplayer as "CountryBoy Dedi Server" in the international section. The map is Mills County, and the password is "mills." Hope to see you there!

    Just saw this in fs-uk Congratulations to one of the FSUK Modding Partners from Realismus Modding. That his great talent has been recognised by Giants & offering him a place in the Giants Dev team as gameplay programmer. link For those that don't know Rahkiin he's one of the team behind Seasons. It was Rahkiin who got me into the promotions team.

    My wants. Seasons, More Realistic, Soil mod, expandable farms all which can be switch on or off. I'm not worried about brands over much. What I have seen on dynamic ground at the moment I'm not a fan. Moveable animals would be great, I'd love to be able to go one stage further on my organic farming:-)

    (So just a forewarning, I have never traveled by air and the only time I have personally left the USA was on my honeymoon cruise down to Mexico. So I will not cover stuff I have never actually done and for the things that may be inaccurate I apologize in advance.) I have arrived in Rathlin Island after 3 connecting flights and an hour drive from Belfast, tired and worn having never traveled much before. I ring the old turn style bell on the door at the address I was given by Thomas, he had mentioned that he has a hard time getting around lately so I was prepared to wait at the door for a while. While I stood there at that little stone cottage, red door and green shutters, definitely not modern in the slightest but beautiful as you could imagine. I heard a faint “Be right there.” A few people walk by up the street looking towards me with curiosity, I figure I may be the first stranger in a long time here, but maybe not. There is a rattle on the inside of the door and it creeks open slowly showing the smiling face of Thomas, “Welcome cousin come in.” Hours pass as he and I chat, when its supper time he has a pained expression on his face, he explains that all he has in the house are a few cans of stewed meat soup. Without a second thought I walk over to the little café I passed by and order 2 meals, although taking them to go was not an expected request, after explaining the situation to the owner he takes no time at all to foil up the plates and says I can bring them back tomorrow no worries. Supper passes and an early bedtime for me. The dock area of Ballycastle as well as the Island of Rathlin used to be maintained by Thomas before he fell ill some years back and shrubbery and all sorts of weeds have started to overtake the roadsides. I stop and talk to Patrick, whom Thomas told me to talk to, about me resuming those duties while I was here in town. How I was going to do so I was not sure exactly, but there was a need and I was going to try to fill it, I had a chainsaw from Thomas and was told of a shop in Ballycastle who sold and rented out some equipment. I took the Hurliman to the dock and had to wait for the ferry to be ready to launch, luckily it was parked on the island late yesterday, and I was brought over by a nice gentleman in his dingy. The shops mechanic had an answer on how to help with all the shrubbery rather than burning it. He seems to be rather a wiz at rigging equipment together to server unusual purposes, Neil showed me the chipping part that came off of a Bruks Hakkuri 605PT that was a bit messed up, he had taken it off of the trailer with the claw arm and had rigged it up to hook to the front of a tractor three point and would be powered by the PTO. He even had it working to grind up stumps with a bit of work of the driver. Neil was real excited to see it work that he let me lease it from him for 5,104 euros, he said the four at the end made it seem official, the shop let me rent an agroliner tipper trailer for 2376 for the initial cost. I would end up leasing this stuff for several days. I started not far from the shop over by the trailer park and the Ballycastle Livestock barn, Neil told me that that road was down to a one lane road because of all the overgrown trees, he did not think the city officials would mind. Hours later I was struggling to even get access to some of it as it was so tangled and tough, I was cutting by hand and throwing small pieces into the grinder which was blown over the tractor into the trailer. I had a full trailer load before I stopped to think I was not sure what to do with the chips I had. A stranger stopped as he walked by and realized what my problem was, “Over to the Agri-Merchants with it are ye? Or perhaps the bio heating plant over on the Island? Both will take it as a burn material.” I do believe that man was an angel sent from on High at that moment. That first day I came out over a thousand euros in the hole even after selling a bit of material, and all for a sore back and blistered hands. It was well after sundown before I made it back to the cottage of Thomas, “Mrs. Murphy from the café was worried about you, sent us over supper for us. Said this one is on the house as appreciation for the kindness you have brought.” I wolfed it down and hit the bed like a dead man from a three story building, I did not even notice my cell phone blinking its missed messages and calls from my wife. She may have killed me there on the spot if she knew I blew through the fifteen thousand the first day here.

    I don't know if this has ever been discussed but it would be nice to have the ability to do a sod farm where you could cut sod and put it on a trailer take it to a sell pont or some other outlet. Sod farming is a real business more than some of the other things in the game.

    So my wife thinks I am certifiably crazy, who really can blame her, I come to her with “What would you say about moving to Ireland to farm!” She literally looked at me to see if I had grown a tumor or a second head, and then she burst into laughter like you have not seen before, holding her sides and slapping her knee. By the time she was done laughing she was on the floor out of air and wheezing, asking if I was pulling some long term April fools joke. After I get her to stop laughing some thirty minutes later and sit her down and tell her about Thomas and Rathlin Island and the whole story she is actually looking up skrinks and facilities for mental health. She says ok, so you found info on your ancestry that leads you to Ireland. Why would we go there just because that is where the info lead you to? We have jobs here and family here and a house with a car loan, church and friends. All valid points I will admit to, this is a really crazy notion, but something in my gut says this is important, and it’s not just last nights tacos either. This feels really important, like God sized important to me, and who am I to question His plans for me? After all am I not a faithful servant to Him? Do I not put my life in the hands of Jesus Christ my Savior, the guy who died on a cross for me even though I am a wrectched undeserving soul? I get a resounding absolutely no way in this world would make my wife want to go along with this weird plan, even after explaining that it may not be something in this world leading me to do this. So like a wise man I let it go and I do not press this matter anymore on this day, after all Rome not built in a day and all that. I continue on with my week as normal, work and little ones in the house to feed, bath and chase like a wild buffoon trying to tickle them if they are too slow. While looking further into this myself, cost of a plane ticket there and a bed and breakfast to stay at in Ballycastle, what am I going to do when I get there? Thomas only has the one tractor left a little Hurliman that is only eighty-eight horsepower, I am not even sure what can be done with that. I told my wife that I have fifteen days of vacation at work and I can borrow up to fifteen thousand against my 401K, I would like to take that and go make a try in Ireland. My wife being the loving caring woman that she is looked deep into my eyes and had the softest look on her face and told me to explain how it would even work. So I elaborate on the plan that I had prepared and with my gifted Irish mouth explained away every question she could throw at me, but still not fully convinced but with no further argument tells me if I want to waste away our retirement money for some **BadWord** and bull plan that it would be me working in old age not herself. So off to Ireland with fifteen thousand and a dream, maybe I am insane after all!

    My wish list is more about improvements I’d like to see in the next version of Giants Editor but some of them apply to the game as well. · Multiple navMeshes for a given animal type. Presently we are limited to a single navMesh per animal. I’d like to be able to create several navMeshes and link them in such a way that the animals could be transferred between navMeshes. In this way we could move cows from the barn navMesh to a pasture navMesh and then latter on move them to a different pasture navMesh and then finally back to the barn navMesh. · A rethink of you field dimensions are defined. The current system of defining field definitions as a parallelogram, or series of parallelograms is adequate for rectangular fields but quickly becomes inflexible as field shapes become more complex. I’d prefer a system of defining field edge path similar to how it’s done in Course Play. · Multiple elevations for water planes. As its stands we can implement multiple water planes at differing elevations but only water plane at the lowest elevation can be used as a water fill point. I’d like to be able to create lakes and ponds at different elevations while still being able to use each as a refill point, or at least have the option to do so. · Ability to paint more than 4 terrainLayerPaint layers in a single grid area. Bumping this up to 5 or 6 would make a huge difference allowing for more variation in scenery · The ability to click and drag transform groups and objects in the scenegraph Changes that I’d like to see that would not require changes to GE but may require changes to the game engine · No rain through the roofs of structures · A rethink of the way cows and sheep are feed grass. Seems a bit redundant to feed them grass when they are on a pasture. · Better AI traffic. At present I find the AI physics and behavior to be immersion breaking, so much so that I rarely turn it on. · I’d have no objection to incorporating Seasons in game though I’d be perfectly happy with its continued development as a mod instead. · A more complex fertilization system along the lines of soil mod. Again I’d be just as happy if this came out as a mod, or got incorporated into Seasons as I would if they were incorporated into the game. · Contracts. Rather than selling when the price is the best I’d like to see an option to agree to sell at specific amount at a given price at a set time. The contract price could be better than the market price but would entail penalties if you fail to deliver. There are a few other popular wishes that I’ve seen here and elsewhere that I’m not convinced would be good additions to the game. · Dynamic ground. Now I love playing Spintires, but that’s a game about getting stuck in the mud, I’d hate to see it taken to that extreme in FS. Dynamic terrain could be toned down from Spintires levels to be more in keeping with the farming focus of FS but as Meremen alluded to the implementation in C&C hasn’t won me over. An additional consideration, from what I understand is that it would require a new game engine. There’s been some clamor for Giants to move to a new engine but I think these people seriously underestimate the difficulty in moving to a new engine. The devs would need to learn to use the new engine which might prove to be a significant learning curve. Secondly I doubt that any of the engines available would offer all of FS’s current functionality out of the box, which would mean the team would need to learn the new engine and then spend time modifying it to suit FS. Very doubtful that Giants could pull this off in the span of a 2 year dev cycle. The only option that I could see would be to have two separate teams working, one on FS19 using the current engine, and a second team developing a future iteration of FS (21 or possibly latter) on the new engine. Dovetail had promised to move Train Simulator over to a new engine a goal that slipped year after year. Eventually they released the new engine as a new game rather than an iteration of the existing game. · Used vehicles. I like the idea in principal but I’d be concerned about how it effects game balance. Unless maintenance costs are higher than new, and remain so even after repair, then I don’t see why you would ever not buy used. If it is implemented I’d like to see it done so in a way that only a very limited selection of equipment is available as used at any one time and that this selection would change over time with some equipment being sold off to the NPC’s and some other equipment becoming available.

    Hi all, Just joined the forum and I have decided to give it a go. I have chosen Churn Village at 1X speed, mud mod turned off and Buy bales mod and Manure mod. I have sold all of the existing equipment and gone with John Deere equipment buying what I need as I go, I have no animals at the moment but will buy them later at the best price possible. I will not use Courseplay or hire workers as I will be doing all of the work myself at a slow pace, I will be using the 7R and 9R JD Tractors for the large Hilly fields but use the older equipment for the standard ones with average plowes ect. I have started day 1 and invested in Manure Placeable so I can spread it on the fields and I have purchased a few more fields around the main farm. Day 1 consisted of selling all equipment getting the AR spreader and the JD7R with forks and bucket to match and started to fertilize the fields I had to wait for a small sprinkle of snow and rain for day 1 morning time but used that time to get everything to the store by 10.00am all that was done and the rain ect had stopped so got to work.

    Apologies for digging up an old post, but I figured it best than to create a new one. Let me first start off by stating for the record, that I have not attempted to contact the owner of CSIO tech to verify what I'm going to say below. Anyway, as most might know....I (and many others) backed the CSIO SKRS Shifter for ATS/ETS2 about two years ago. Also, for the record...I received my shifter just as expected and had no complaints then or even now. Also, as many of you know...I also occasionally blog about my interest and activities with simulation gaming and I did write an article discussing the shifter, my Crowdfunding support of it and my overall satisfaction with the product when it arrived. I've had multiple people contact me over the past 3-4 months regarding my blog article who have shared their frustration with the guy behind CSIO Tech. Most tell a similar story of ordering a shifter via the website and after weeks and in some cases months later, they are still waiting for their order to be fulfilled. A recent email from yesterday, informed me that this particular customer was struggling to even maintain communication with CSIO tech and he fears this has all become a scam. I find this to be somewhat surprising as I genuinely felt the CSIO guy certainly fulfilled his end of the deal regarding my transaction. But things happen I suppose. I'm going to make an effort to reach out to CSIO and see what is going on. I've checked their Facebook page and after some digging I do see several postings and comments left by some who appear to be unhappy with their experiences. But as with much in life, there generally is two sides to each story. My main reason for writing this is simply to share what I've recently learned in an effort to just warn others. If I learn something after trying to contact CSIO, I'll post it here. Jerry

    Theres a lot of fence sitting on this game release The question @GrizzlyBearSims raises about the controller support is something I missed when I pre-ordered but that said I would still have ordered as I want to see their take on a farming game, we are all familiar with Giants take on the genre and now Farmers dynasty has put another twist in to the Farming sim world. I am looking forward to playing this new game which I hope will offer a different play style, and a new interesting game to steel yet more of my life

    Newly-released downhill biking game Descenders sends you hurtling down a mountain at breakneck speeds. This is incredibly reckless, highly dangerous, and more than a little frightening - and you'll probably love every second of it. The tracks in Descenders are randomly generated and you can always pick between three tracks with different traits. If you do particularly well and complete an extra objective in each level, you gain an extra life. This often leads to you seeking out danger and performing death-defying stunts such as backflips, 360s, and other weird stuff - instead of playing it safe. This way of chaining together random tracks works really well. It adds a sense of progression to an otherwise rather pointless activity and rewards you with new bikes and new clothes to wear - all of which are purely cosmetic, mind. While the first set of levels has wide open spaces which allow you to just go around most obstacles, the second set requires perfect driving in a serpentine wooden area. It's quite the difficulty spike. If you run out of "lives", the game sends you back to the very beginning - unless you manage to unlock new areas by repeatedly completing a terifying boss jump at the end of each set. What might hold Descenders back the most is its reluctance to embrace the silliness of hurtling down a mountain and the ensuing hilarious mishaps. Jumping over a railroad bridge is ridiculous, no need to look like an earnest sports game while you're doing it. Give me something to laugh about! Give me top hats and monocles! Give me clown costumes or giant chicken suits! In its current state, the game seems almost too straightfaced. This is a hilarious arcade game, not a simulation! With their previous title Action Henk, RageSquid have proven that they can do funny, after all. But then, this is an Early Access title. Who knows what else the developers come up with? (There seem to be placeholders for hats, so my prayers for more silliness will probably be heard.) The foundations are there, and they are more than solid. The progression system feels good and the addition of daily runs and leaderboards should provide some fierce competition. You can purchase Descenders from Steam for $24.99. The game will also be coming to Xbox Game Preview soon. For more information, visit the game's website or follow developer RageSquid on Twitter. (Disclosure: former indiegames.com editor Mike Rose is publishing the game on his label No More Robots.) View the full article

    Progress has been made, bushes are cleared and the areas are looking so good in fact that they city council asked if I could help with the weeds that had come in under the brush. I started with the main farm as they call it, it has not been used in some years and the pig and cow pastures have been over grown with weeds and big dirt spots. I bought a plough with the money I made from selling wood chips, good money to be made there, I decided if I am going to do this I may as well do it correctly so I got a fertilizer spreader and a cultivator. I spent several days doing all that work, I covered the whole main farm east of the old house just south of the green houses. Thomas got permission for me to do just south of field thirteen where the sheep usually graze, I also bought three fields near the dock from a farmer who was not using the area and was willing to sell for a good price. Does that make me a local since I now own property in Ireland? What it did make me was almost deaf from the scream my wife gave me on the phone, she wanted to know how we would afford the taxes and what we would do with this land, but not so calmly. Busy several days that is for sure, even after all that I am still up forty-five thousand euros. Mid spring and I will be planting all grass soon, with a thought of getting into the sheep farming side of things though I am told milk cows make good money as well. Pigs take actual crop so those would not do well for me even though Ireland is in need of fresh pork. So many ways to make it, and so many ways to fall to my demise. I was told fair play, maybe I am not just one of those loud Americans who was not of the full shilling. Another of the fellas around said that was a gas and I was no eejit either. I looked at them and said I was just happy out for the work to do, they stopped with surprise that I had understood them. I have watched a few movies you know.

    Jerry i also have the SKRS shifter from CSIO. I ordered it from his web site and it took 3 months to get it. The product is fine but i have read posts on other forums and face book of people having issues with it and getting no help frpm CSIO. I guess i was just lucky.

    Version 2


    Welcome to Broad Acres – The first Australian 16x Map for FS17 Broad Acres is a fictional map based around Australia. Australia is known for is vast open places and large Broad Acre cropping. The FS17 map was designed to replicate this to some extent and give players the opportunity to play large fields with large equipment and even bigger demands. The map is based around a family living on a large scaled farm named Broad Acres. The father who resides in the north/western corner is slowing down so he looks after the animals and the BGA. The son on the other hand is trying to prove his worth. He has the responsibility of taking control of the all the cropping aspects of the farm, and I must tell you it’s a big job. The son must prove that he can run the farm and make money to make sure he inherits the farm. Please visit our facebook page to ensure you have a supported version (we have had the map leaked on some sites). We offer support through github. Please see links in the downloadable package on this site. Please read the Readme and the manual included. Map is not to be edited or reuploaded. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1201506563300768/ Enjoy large scaled farming.

    Day 3 of Late Autumn I did not feel like getting out of bed this morning. It rained most of the night and was still dripping when I forced myself outside. My wife was just returning from a run, she was cheery, I was not… but I managed not to take it out on her. By the time I returned, I was feeling much better, a light breakfast made everything good again. We talked about the day, we wanted to bring in the corn. I hoped it would dry before we lost light. The phone rang. I quickly replayed last night's events, yep… I remember buying a tractor. I wasn’t exactly talked into it, but the timeline was moved up considerably. Realizing that we would be waiting most of the day for the crop to dry I coaxed my wife outside to get things set up. We got the corn header attached and moved to the field and it was about time for an early lunch. I was getting a little bit excited. I managed to get her in the truck without too much manipulation and we headed to the shop. When we pulled into the lot, two things surprised me. First of all my wife seemed to somehow know that the shiny new tractor sitting in the lot was for her and showed jubilation that rivaled a championship win. Secondly, it was pink. I tried to focus on my wife’s joy, but it was pink. I’m going to have to be prepared for the friendly gibes. We accepted delivery and got some pointers, she seemed to know how everything worked… I really thought the reverse driving was an interesting feature. I was assured that it would mow my fancy grass like a dream. I was impressed with its 400 horsepower, this was going to pull the plow quite nicely. I’ll have to talk to Mr. Harris soon so we can try that out. When we arrived back home she pulled right up to the tipper and we hooked it up and headed out to the field. We managed to harvest all the corn in the afternoon, just three tippers worth, but it will be plenty for the pigs. I did notice that she took a very long time to unload, I have a feeling that she did a little extra driving in her new pink tractor.

    Placeable that started with the request of DeafGamer. This mod started out as the coffee pack. With the request of a few people I decided to add a few more toys. Unfortunately I had to start the coffee pack over from scratch. I was concerned with some filltype conflicts. This factory pack has 3 separate files to download if you want to utilize its full potential. The master pack/trailer sell is a must or you will not be able to move or sell products. This is fabrik based so you will need tanks to support the liquid triggers. FS17 Kotte Unversal Pack By Farmer Andy Nc Raiders AR Pack Packs Master Pack/Trailer and Sell This pack is needed to sell and transport your goods in the doughnut and coffee pack. At the coffee house placeable/sell point you are able to sell any product made from any factory. The doughnuts and coffee sell at a higher price. Sell: Coffee beans Coffee Flour Sugar Eggs (made at egg production, not from chickens in game) Vetable Oil Doughnut Milk (you can sell milk from the in game cows if you have milk stop sales, and from the milk mill) BD Pallet Trailer BD Pallet TDK 1600 Either trailer will work, however you have to use one of these trailers because of the type of trigger and filltype in the script. Coffee Pack Coffee bean orchard Input Seed, water, manure Output Coffee beans Coffee roaster Input Fuel, coffee beans Output Coffee Sell products at the coffee house found in the Master Pack/BD Trailer and Sell Point Doughnut Pack Flour Mill Input: wheat barley Output: flour Sugar Mill Input: sugarbeet corn Ouput: sugar Milk Mill Input: barley soybean sunflower Ouput: milk Vegetable Oil Mill Input: canola sunflower soybean Output: vegetable oil Egg Production Input: wheat barley maize water Ouput: eggs manure Doughnut Production Input: flour sugar eggs water milk vegetable oil Ouput: doughnuts

    This is for the most part a Farm sim channel. I'm only getting started so as it grows I'll figure out how to put my other games on it too. Enjoy.

    Pick up loose material from the ground and load it onto a trailer.
