    You know why the Dutch used to be so good in languages? Because we had all TV in original language with subtitles. Weaning children on Donald Duck and Woody Woodpecker in English with Dutch subtitles and the situation very clear definitely helps children to get better in languages. In...

    For big countries, yes. For us small counties, that's about the minimum what you learn, either in school or pick up. Actually, French and German are the two languages where translate.google.com does not make a complete BS story from your text.

    Branch of service affects value?

    Nice truck, I'll take it. Maybe it has been painted over into the blue already once, and the hood is showing the real color under it?

    Steel Soldiers MV of the month November 2020

    Katastrophenschutz, is that similar to the Zivilschutz? In the Netherlands we used to have the Bescherming Bevolking (BB, Civil Defence). This was a state organization parallel to the military aimed at protecting the civil population in times of war. War did not come, so later they were also...

    Actually, the term comes from "ROBOTA", which is the obligatory work the peasants had to do a few days per year for the lord of the manor. This was part of the serfdom under feudalistic rule under the Hapsburg rule (Austro-Hungarian Monarchy). Until 1848, the peasants in the Monarchy were...

    Coffey, my flight aversion, money and partner all say no, but , as you say, the rests all vote heavily in favor. I do now live in the country that invented the term Robot, but I would not describe myself as that rofl

    Not wanting to insult anybody, but motivate them, maybe the theme of next year could be "old farts"? :wink::wink:

    October would be better, but I am not sure if I would be able to make it anyway.

    Kenny, to be expected. We see the same with our traditional meetings in our blacksmith workshop (not MV related). After some years, it becomes too massive and a lot of the intimacy gets lost. :sad::sad: But we do :cry::cry::cry:

    PTO powered hydraulic pump for...everything?

    That looks nice, any change of a schematic drawing? Do you have a free quick-connect ending somewhere as well, for external stuff or a trailer connection?

    PTO powered hydraulic pump for...everything?

    I was/am still thinking about this. My M51A2 I can switch between dump and 5th wheel and I want a hydraulic leg system to lift the dump bed so I can drive from underneath it. As seen from the numbers, the M51 is a Dump truck, in my case W/W, so a front pts for the now froozen/#$%$#ed winch...

    With COVID-19 and coming from Europe, no way I could make it this year, regardless lack of time (new job) and serious lack of $$$. With several other actions we were supposed to attend this year in the USA (Blacksmith meeting, Hereditary Cancer conference), we will definitely be coming to the...
