I've often thought about the night vision stuff myself - but just can't justify spending the $$$ for something I would not use all that often.
I'd be surprised if we didn't end up with a Kolpin Dirtworks system or the one made by Arctic Cat sometime this year. When I think of what I could do with a disk and tractor I get weak in the knees, so hoping this might be the next best thing.
I'd really love to get a broadband internet connection and hook up some of those remote cameras around the place so I could visit the farm anytime I wanted from my computer at home or work. But that will have to wait for a few more years since I don't think the camera technology is good enough yet.
