The Famous Grouse
Thanks for the replies guys. At least it's not the worst idea anyone's ever heard of. I like this family and I guess I empathize with them being from the European equivalent of our flyover land.
Why not buy a European machine? Good question. I'm speculating that it has to do with politics, cost, and transport. They certainly have looked into it in Germany, CR, and Slovakia. Everything in Europe is very, very expensive to these folks. Russia and Ukraine aren't on friendly terms these days, so cross border travel with expensive machines sounds dicey to me. The political situation in this part of the world is very dicey and complicated.
And to be honest I get the sense that they like the adventure of this. Farming out there sounds like quite a grind and apparently, there's a wedding this summer up in SK that they'd like to attend. I guess these weddings are quite the deal, like a 3 day deal.
Well, like I said, at least the idea isn't the worst. It'd be pretty cool if they pulled this off, but I just want to see them get something better than what they got, doesn't matter from where.
Things are pretty rough over there, we talk about bad times and troubles over here like we know what they are. Gotta say over there you get people yearning for the good old days of the Soviet Union and you can't blame them a lot for it. I can see where they do think of those as the good old days, everybody had a job and got to go to a summer camp every year, etc, etc. Makes you thankful for what you've got.
