The most unpopular thread on CR. Does a country crowd even exist in the CR community?

Well the title more or less says it all. Does a country crowd even exist on CR? A recent thread about cowboy boots got me wondering whether anime has made its way into the country. In my area, it definitely hasn't. Bring up guns, big blocks, hot rod diesels, farming, horticulture, or whatever else (related), and you're sure to stir up a conversation. But bring about anime, manga, and the like and you'll just get confused looks. This is probably going to be the most unpopular thread on CR, but is there a country crowd out there? I suppose it would help to ask a few questions:

Green, yellow, red, blue, or something else. Which tractor do you prefer?

Do you count on a Pete, a KW, a Freightliner, a Mac, an International, or something else to get your crop to the warehouse/processor/etc.?

Got a favorite light duty diesel? 6.2 or a 6.5? Or maybe you prefer a version of the 6.6? 5.9 VE, 5.9 p-pump, 5.9 24v, 5.9 CR, or a 6.7? How about the 7.3? (skipping the 6.0 for various reasons...). Or maybe the 6.4 or a variation of the 6.7?

Got a favorite gas motor? Take your pick. Like the 289, the 302, the 351 Windsor, the 351 Cleveland, or the 460? Maybe you're a fan of the 307, the 327, the 350, the 373, the 396, the 427, the 454, or the 502? Can't forget the 426 hemi or the 440 six pack.

Where do you farm? What do you farm? Wheat, barley, corn, alfalfa, or chickpeas? Tomatoes, squash, onions, garlic, or melons? Apples, pears, cherries, peaches, plums, or apricots? Quinoa, mint, daikon radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, or brussels sprouts?

Like guns? What's in the safe? Pistols? Rifles? Muzzleloaders? Shotguns? Something else?

Got a favorite knife? Folder? Fixed? SOG? Benchmade? Spyder? Kershaw? Some piece of junk that cuts stuff after a trip to the grinder?

What's your favorite decade for country music?

This thread is probably going to die or get flooded with stupid comments, but can you blame a guy for trying?

No country here, I'm a city boy... but I love my Duramax (LMM) anything else that's diesel is pretty cool although emissions equipment post 2010 is a real drag (urea, ecu locks) although maybe they have delete options for things like that now... I haven't been keeping up to date with the diesel universe for a few years now, websites like that cause me to spend money.

I have a 350 in the Trans Am, fast enough and super reliable.

What about bikes? I love Japanese bikes, I have a Yamaha dual sport right now, gunna buy a naked Suzuki next week :p

Nascar is a great sport to follow when you're hammered.

It's fairly country where I live.
Most everybody hunts, own atvs and goes fishing.
We did have a tractor, it was red. But if I had one, I'd paint it pink.
There are farm lands. But the majority of us just have small, personal gardens.
Potatoes, onions, squash, peas, tomatoes, mint, etc.

My favourite knife was a folding tactical knife. One of my ex's gave it to me. I ended up losing it a while back.
I can't remember the brand. It wasn't a Browning or a Benchmade.

I used to live in the country, but after it started getting urbanized my parents moved. But instead of moving further into no-mans land we moved closer to the big city. So now I live in suburbia and have for the last 12 years.

So tackling the questions:

Don't remember our tractors, I was too young to remember them, and my grandparents didn't want me driving one until I was into my teens, which by then we had moved and the farmland had been sold. So that pretty much cuts out about half of the questions...

We farmed wheat and corn I think. We also had a variety of small gardens for stuff we sold at a farmer's market like potatoes and tomatoes and stuff like that.

We had 0 guns as my grandfather pretty much banned them after he got back from whichever war it was he was in.

As for knifes we had some, I never had my own though until I was living in the city and it was just a simple pocket knife (and by simple I mean one of those like $100 ones with like ever possible attachment).

I don't see how living in the country = liking country music. No one I knew from the country liked country music. Hell it is more popular in suburbia than it was in country. Everyone liked rock and it was 70's/80's rock. But to actually answer the question its recent country music that I find good, hated stuff from before the 90's.

I grew up on a dairy farm, so a tanker truck hauled our product away. We had a Farmall tractor (that'd be the red choice, thanks) and an old David Brown. The Farmall was so old that you had to hand-crank it like an old Model T to start it. Even now I live in a small community of roughly 600 or so people, and keep a nice garden going (am still harvesting eggplants, tomatoes, and peppers in mid-October). My profile says Memphis because it's where I work and somewhere that folks might recognize.

Guns? Yes. Long guns and handguns, as the situation demands.

Knives? Yes, always. Generally carry trustworthy, simple utilitarian brands like Buck, Case, and Schrade.

As for music, I enjoy a wide variety, including country. Can't say that I have a favorite decade of music in any genre, however. If I like it, I like it.

I am mostly a city boy but it freaks people out when they find out I am a NASCAR fan. Most who have dismissive things to say never sat down and watched a race.

um well i consider myself a country gal but i can't answer all those questions lol but i like the usual John Deere green tractors, and planting a backyard garden rather than a whole farm (i'm a poor country gal lol), i like hunting rifles better than handguns -- speaking of i love to eat wild game -- as for country music, like 90s stuff a lot (Shania Twain FTW), but also oldies like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson.

the town in which i grew up was 50 miles from any interstate. Went back a few weeks ago and didn't even have any cell phone service

Speaking mah language in here! I may just be the one and only farmer girl in the whole of CR. I think that deserves a throne or at least a crown no? Although, it's not so much that I myself farm but I work with farmers and my job is to package soybeans.

Red tractor FTW but it's gonna get dirty either way sooo -shrug- I deal more with spray rigs than tractors, which in that case I'd rather specifically go with Case IH than John Deere =\ but that's just personal bias.

We don't haul the product ourselves, we contract local farmers/truckers and they do that for us. They then bring all of the product down to our site to be bagged and then shipped to dealers across the wide U.S of A.

We (and by we, I mean our site and contracted growers) farm from North and middle Arkansas all the way up to North Carolina B] Btw, you totally hurt my feelings by not even mentioning soybeans </3 with the way corn prices are "dropping like it's hot" soybeans are slowly but surely gaining ground this year :DD

No guns, I make do with my bow though.

As for country music I like the way country music is right now. I am not a huge fan of country music, so this most recent popcountry or rockcountry is much more aligned to my likes.

Yes. Not that big into 4H, but I did win an award for home remodeling in FFA.

It's Mack not Mac, that's a computer

Nobody is a fan of the 307.

Who doesn't own guns? Kinda need them you know.

Country music? Don't listen to it at all. This is about as close as it gets: http://youtu.be/oUi0OQt6SIc
