Farm truck

2010 was the year we figured out the power of having a large truck to haul big loads and just how much of a time saver it can be.

Joey was kind enough to make us an offer to transfer ownership and we were happy to accept. Of course he retains shared custody for times when he needs to move something large.

It's that time of year when the ground temperature determines if the truck can move or just spin in the mud. So far when it gets stuck the course of action is to wait till it freezes, which is a lot easier than using a hand winch like we did in the good old days with the Isuzu baby truck.

If you think about it, Joey used a very smart strategy to get rid of his truck. Leave it at your sister's farm for a few months until she decides it's indispensable, then ask for it back... :-)
