Your Spudding Turf

Unread postAuthor: STHORNE » Mon May 19, 2008 4:24 pm

I thought it would be interesting to see other peoples houses/spudding grounds because the area you have to spud can determine what types of guns you make.

For instance, If you live in a city and have about 50 square yards of front/back yard, your not going to make a loud combustion that can shoot 200 yards. For one, the noise would piss-off your neighbors, and two, people don't want potatoes landing on there houses 5 blocks away.
But if you live in the country, and have a few acres of land to yourself, you are pretty much limitless to what you can make.

I am lucky enough to live in the country :D Where we have 35 acres of land total. 5 acres is our front/back yard (grass), 14 acres is woods/forest, and the remaining 16 acres contributes to plain flat fields. The fields would be my actual "Spudding Grounds" because I have about a 300 yard straight shot on the far west side of the big field.

Here are some pictures of my palace :wink: :

Um, warning guys - Google Earth puts Global co-ordinates at the bottom of the image, if you don't want people to know exactly where you are, you need to cut that bit off.

I'll make up a picture, but it'll take a few minutes to do.

well i have ringed around where i can shoot. the big fields is just when there is not animals there.

the small ring behind my house there is the sand pit.

the house was not ours at the time and now the house is three times as big and it is four new buildings (two work shops, one house for the doggs and a small hous for home party) and the sand pit seems to get bigger and bigger. i get some real pics up tomorrow.

Ragnarok was referring to petifiles and whatnot but I'm pretty sure you don't have to worry about that on spudfiles.

And why don't you think about having an IPLA meeting at your place if you want a fellow spudder (or more) to come over.

EDIT: wow, that's a lot of crops lol. What all do you plan on growing this year?

Well Sthrone I knew he was referring to petifiles. lol. But yeah i guess i could try and have an IPLA meeting at my place if it was ok with my dad and someone would need to bring an air compressor a big one because mine sucks even though it only takes about 30 seconds or so to fill its really loud it would also need to be in the summer. We are growing wheat right now my dad does not farm it a guy pays us to use the land. My dad is a truck driver.

spudfarm I made a bunch of rockets but i added some extra stuff and accidentally made a bomb. I have ideas on how to use them with cannons but I will not say on this forums because I am pretty darn sure its against the rules. I love this place i would not want to get banned

If you absolutely want to know hit me up on AIM.
