Cargo net update

Is there a reason you two use buckets in the back of the truck instead of using.... well.... the back of the truck to haul? I understood the buckets when you were using the ATV, but I don't know why you're hauling buckets instead of hauling a larger load of manure.

Stephen --- We're using the ATV as part of the hauling process. Truck to the parking area, then ATV to the core homestead, unless we get really lucky with a dry spell that will let us drive the truck all the way home. We're still keeping our fingers crossed on that one....
